These models are part of the "KontinuumLAB Instrument Kit" project.

I used these to make the K.L.I.K. 4-string instruments, namely the bass guitar and the ukulele. There are 2 fretboard sections for each, with frets progressively closer going up the neck.
[[EDIT: These models were updated on 28. nov 2020, splitting them up in individual fret sections instead of 4 together, for easier assembly]]
The K.L.I.K. string sensors are capacitive sensors, and these models simply serve as a base with a "string-like" shape to put conductive material onto. Very basic stuff.

For full description / explanation, go to the KontinuumLAB YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSvGhrAVvAKpWMsooCTBWZQ.
This is the video about the 4-string instrument specifically:

All of the KLIK instruments are meant to be built using the KontinuumLAB Instrument Kit electronics. The use of 3d printed parts is optional, all instruments can be hand-made as well. I will be selling the "K.L.I.K." kit, as well as instruments based on it, in the webshop at: www.kontinuumlab.com

The 3d-printable parts include: mouth pieces, breath sensors, self-flexing melodica keys, wind instrument keys, structural pieces, end pieces for making boxes, membrane instrument "drums", string instrument fret-board sensor bases and even a fully 3d-printed MIDI ocarina.

The KontinuumLAB Instrument Kit is still under development. More detailed descriptions, as well as updates and more designs will be published right here.

Materials and methods

I print all of these in PLA using my Ender 3, FDM machine.
Layer height 0.2 or 0.28 mm
Support is needed for some pieces, some need to be rotated before printing
Most pieces are meant to be combined with other materials to make the finished instrument. My versions of the KLIK instruments use mainly corrugated cardboard or polypropylene.

Some of the ringtones available on https://tonosdellamadamp3.com/tonos-de-llamada-iphone/ are also pretty cool that I can find and use.

This is a great thing, can I use them as ringtones for mobile devices? Thank you very much.
