Created the first modular vinyl player, printed on a 3D printer, they plan to release a DIY kit in series

The Dutch manufacturer of 3D printers RepRapUniverse and the Swiss company Lenco, which creates the players, decided to please the archaic fans with another electronic device. Unlike other companies, duplicating devices from the good old 70s - 80s, the producers of the tandem intend to launch a DIY-set in the series. It will allow everyone to assemble the Lenco-MD turntable with their own hands, after having printed most of the parts on a 3D printer. 3r3164.

A working prototype of the player was presented at the IFA 2018 Consumer Electronics Faire in Berlin. To support the project and, probably, to study global demand, 3–3–315 was launched. campaign on kickstarter 3r3183. . Under the cut, a few words about what the self-printing and assembly electrophone promises to be and what they have already implemented in the prototype. 3r3164.

The Lenco-MD prototype, shown in IFA 201? is a turntable made from a set of accessories, as well as parts printed on a 3D printer and equipped with a tonearm. Due to the fact that the modules for the electrophone are still being developed, it was shown in the standard wired version. 3r3164.
