I am still using 3D printed frets and bridges.

I have been figuring out the intonation and incorporating it into the bridge design so that it doesn’t need to be angled. I typically have a target height and just print a new one if it has to go up or down.

I still print individual frets, but no nail brad ones because I have had trouble with them buzzing, tough to isolate, and I don’t want to mess with gluing them all. I have been printing a thin 2-piece fretboard with all the frets. In either case I use double stick tape to secure them. It has worked well.

I also use 3D printed string guides and tailpieces.  The 3D printer is a very useful tool in my builds and simplifies the building process for me.

I’ll be gland to answer any questions you have.
