I just posted a link to that in another thread.  Isn't it amazing?  All I've managed is a few folk flutes and a keyless "tarogato".

Oops. Sorry Dibbs. It is amazing!

 With the right equipment, a bass just might be possible.

A bass tarogato is definitely on my "to build" list, just need to find a cheap junk tenor sax for the keys! I've already made a keyless copy of my 1800s tarogato and was very happy with the results.

Keep up the innovative work Jared.

There's plenty of cheap junk tenors on ebay. Don't hack an early Bundy 1. Those are essentially Buescher 30a's and are awesome and still cheap tenors.

I think this is great, and really the wave of the future.  Maybe someday music stores will be places where they print your desired instrument and then finish them for your with keys and accessories! 

Today you spend thousands buying a new Buffet, which has to be sent immediately to a tech to get it playing well.  They don't sell finished instruments anymore, really, they sell expensive and pretty clarinet "kits."  For this reason, I have stuck with vintage horns -- they are generally well made, more thoroughly finished, and use higher quality materials.  I've had a few "bad surprises," but not that many.  And I have spent countless thousands less than if I had bought new instruments. 

So, I say bring on the 3-D printed horns!  Especially in the case of rarer instruments, it's a true solution.
