CWRU graduates exhibit 3d printed violins at CES in Las Vegas

Former Case Western Reserve University students hope to provide affordable 3D violins for students

WEWS: Matthew Canel and Ben Kaufman, a pair of Case Western Reserve graduates from Case School of Engineering, have joined others as part of a group exhibiting at CES (formerly the Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas for three years running. This year they displayed their latest iteration of 3D-printed violins, constructed at about one-fourth the size for use by younger students—and at a lower cost than traditional violins. The university’s annual CES exhibit is led by Bob Sopko who directs CWRU LaunchNET, the 10-year-old center for helping entrepreneurs at every step of the process.
