The self-replicating machine makes music

I wanted the RepRap to make beeps to confirm whether everything is connected and working. But of course you can have it make music as well!

I wrote a script to make G-Code movements from sheet music. It is of awful coding quality but it works-for-me (TM). There are others who can even use midi as input but it didn’t work for me and was pretty easy to make!

Disclaimer: making music on your RepRap comes with no warranty. Before running this on your machine, make sure that you replace regular nuts with Delrin(TM) embedded lock-nuts (or similar). Otherwise your machine may fall apart 😉

We also considered 3D printing a musical instrument and having a servo controlled finger play it. But I thought I’d blog these early results first 😉
