There’s another first for MakerBot: electronic musician Haeyoung “Bubblfish” Kim wrote this song, supposedly the first original composition written for a MakerBot CupCake! If you’re digging this, check out MakerBot’s list of other musical compositions. If you want to make your own, there is a MIDI to gcode Python script that helps you convert your tunes. And if you don’t have a machine but still want to make CNC music, download the MakerBot sound library which consists of .AIF samples of various CupCake pulleys and servos.

  1. Ok, after watching this and the other CNC “music videos”, I need to try this with my machine. Hello, weekend project! :-)

    Although it would ruin the music, I wonder what sort of shapes you would get if you cut/printed with various 2-channel(axis) songs. My guess is that they would tend to be very linear and grid-like, but it probably depends a lot on the song. /Shrug. Could be neat.
