This is a parametric stringed instrument generator that can create anything from a pocket ukelele to a triple bass. The instrument geometry is derived from a spreadsheet; variables such as number of strings and length of strings are produced from the geometrical skeleton file. The present functional version of marabunta is dependent on autodesk inventor; soon a version will be released that uses a python scrypt in Blender to create the model geometry.
The instrument is open source, and designed so that anyone can fabricate it with a CNC machine.
Digital functionality for creating MIDI/DMX will also be integrated for controlling the instrument with the teensy development platform.
