3D Printed Speakers With a Visual Twist

Date: April 11, 2013

Think these speakers are cool? You can have them!

A three person engineering team is receiving plenty of attention after 3D printing speakers. 

These aren't your normal speakers, however, as they were combined with LED lights that flash, change and alter with every sound fluctuation.

The audioreactive LED system is from LumiGeek.

The speakers were printed in multiple-materials on an Objet Connex500 3D printer from Stratasys.

The speakers look incredible, but don't be fooled - they sound great too! The speaker housings incorporate a mixture of flexible black material with hard translucent plastic interspersed on the grid. The result is two melon-sized hollow balls that look a little like futuristic blooming onions, and sound terrific too!

Several models and prototypes were printed, with design flaws eliminated after each print.

“I’ve been on this quest to kind of push this envelope of rapid manufacturing versus rapid prototyping,” said  LumiGeek founder John “Parts” Taylor.

The base of the speakers (used to house the speaker component) was 3D printed in TangoBlackPlus, a rubber-like black material that is both strong and flexible. The crystal-looking elements that encapsulate the LED lights were printed in VeroClear - a rigid transparent material and perfect for LumiGeek’s audioreactive LED light show.

"The world hasn’t seen this before," said Taylor. "What we’re doing is literally playing video in here... It’s always been one or two layers away from the final product."
