This is a two piece model that works like the Mexican Wood Güiro. The wooden stick is included inside and will snap off after printing. It sounds quite good. It also kinda looks like a shark too.
The güiro, which was adapted from a pre-Columbian instrument, is a notched, hollowed-out gourd. The güiro is made by carving parallel circular stripes along the shorter section of the elongated gourd.
It is played by holding the güiro in the left hand with the thumb inserted into the back sound hole to keep the instrument in place.
I would suggest printing standing up using a raft and 10% infill. The shape wont require any support as it builds up from below. You can use ABS or PLA in any color you like. You can scale the model up or down and make big and small. Units are in English. I already added a thin brim to support the print, I expect you to sand this off.
Please encourage me and others alike to keep sharing ideas and creations. Give feedback and favorite me if you find this useful. Thank you and may the force be with you.
