CAD Screen Shots of the horn inspired bottom section with the model cut in half.

 

Shows how the bass driver pushes the air up from the back of the driver, out the sides and then down. In turn, creating a 360 Degree horn effect.

 

This Cross-section shows how the downward-firing bass driver sits within the structure and is held in place. It also portrays clearly the movement of the air. As the air flows off the back of the driver, it goes up to the top of the structure where it becomes compressed. Next, the air flows down the side of the speaker where it is released. Creating a horn effect.

The surface and overall shape was modelled in Rhino 3dm and then the manufacturing and assembly details were added in fusion 360. 

3D Printed Textures

Texture of the DLP 3D printing utilised to create this desktop speaker.

DLP was chosen as a lot of the internals were complex to print using traditional 3D printing. Such as the internal 360 degree horn design and the internal overlapping walls or sections.

DLP printing gave more control with the engineering of the air movement internally, as there was no design restrictions or tolerances that come with traditional 3D printing.
