CASE STUDY: 3D PRINTING DRUMS

Close

Panic! At The Disco drummer Dan Pawlovich tours the world with a 3D printed snare drum.

Dan Pawlovich has disrupted a centuries-old traditional design by asking a simple question – how can I make a drum sound better? Traditional drum designs utilize hardware that assemble a drum, and Dan has patented a design that incorporates the hardware into the drum shell.

Inspired by 3D printing’s ability to manufacture complex geometries, Dan worked with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing to build five iterations of his snare drum designs. Touring with Panic! At The Disco, Dan’s design has proved to be a punchy, resilient addition to his drum kit.
