Music Notation

A 3D model of music notation showing the musical staff, a treble cleff, the sharp symbol, a 2 4 time signature and two joined quavers.

Description of the model

A tactile model of music notation.

The musical stave can be made longer using as many of the extension parts as required.

All other pieces can be clipped on to the stave or removed as desired.

This model was designed and tested as part of the 3D4VIP project.

Printing instructions and tips

The Music Staff and Music Staff Extension are printed at 100% fill density with the fill angle set at 90 degrees. These are oriented face up on the print bed due to the slightly raised bar lines at either end of the staff.

All other pieces are printed face down on the print bed at a fill density of 15%.

The Music Notation Demo file is purely for demonstration and not required to be printed as part of the set.
