Introduction: Organic Mobile Phone Speaker Fully 3D Printable

About: I work in a school as a Design & Technology Technician and enjoy designing and making things.

Saw a similar design on the internet (can't remember where) and thought 'that is cool, I wonder if I could make my own version'. After playing around on Creo 3D design programme I came up with this.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Image From Creo

this is a screen shot from Creo showing the design in progress.

Step 2: Choose Your Side

Now when designing this I realised that not all phones have the speaker in the same place, so check your phone and choose the file with the correct hole orientation for your speaker.

Step 3: In One

Now you can choose how you want to print the speaker, there are two options available for each design.

Either choose the complete or the split versions, the split versions will be 'base' and 'top' which you glue together, or use the complete version which will need support removal.

Don't panic,the support is very easy to remove through the holes using pliers and tweezers.

Print with high infill and choose your colour

Step 4: Add Your Phone

Choose your favourite music and put your phone in and listen away.

Now depending on where you put the speaker (ie. what you put it on) the sound can change from a deep base (wood objects) to a subtle sound.

Enjoy

Step 5: Stl. Files

use these to print, pick the right ones for your phone

Ps

if you do not have a 3d printer, I can print for you or use 3D hubs (I am also on there)

    Nice. This is probably the first cell phone speaker project that I think would actually work.

    @JeremyCon - I am curious as to why you are asking this question as you released the plans as part of the instructable with your other projects but not this project?

    I am just curious to, as this is my only instructable so far on this site,
    I don't mind sharing my 'plans' which is why I uploaded this instructable with the stl. files for personal use. just curious as to why the 3D files I designed are required?
    happy to help
