3D printing is a hugely interesting world at the moment, with lots of creators experimenting with 3D printers to make objects of all kinds, and share their designs with the wider world. Some music companies are exploring it too: witness 3D printer firm MakerBot’s recent Ghostly Challenge contest. It challenged designers from the company’s Thingiverse community to create vinyl-themed designs based on the logo of indie label Ghostly International. The winning entry was a beautiful-looking hand-cranked record player, with a needle-shaped storage box and Ghostly iPhone dock taking second and third places. It’s a glimpse at a future of crowdsourced, 3D-printed merchandise that other labels should enjoy browsing – the full gallery of entries can be found via the first link below.
