The customer asked SSEB to 3D print a silver thumb support for oboe or clarinet. This support consists of four different parts, that had to be executed in sterling silver.
Two parts of the thumb support could not be 3D printed, as their diameter was too small in combination with the depth of the hole. The file was adapted to ensure the thumb support was printable and depth became visible after printing.
