MEG-i-PHONE!!!!!!! by zgbot Mar 10, 2011

Featured Thing!

Description

i modified the original by making the cone snap in and out as well as chopping off the hard corners.

print it with exterior support

this is still a work in progress, it works but i can make it better

the large cone i printed failed half way through so i glued it to another cone i had to make a super mega phone cone.

the straight one with the small cone is pretty damn loud i drilled out the hole so its not the correct size for slip in fit.

this is a video of the sound difference

try loading it in repg or pleasant3d. both of these apps can not only center an object but also get it to lay flat on the build surface. save, then load it into axon and it should work great.
Hey Zgbot,

Axon is the bfb software (rapman 3.1) and functions similarly to replicatorG. Where the program is having trouble is centering the object on the table. I had done it no problem with the large horn which came out fantastic after a bit of tweaking in skeinforge. But the problem lies with centering t
he object on the table where the bottom layer is rendered IN the table, instead of on top. If you dont have the original object no problem, ill stop being lazy and re-design one to work with the horn i printed already.

Thanks for the fast response! :)
i dont know what "in axon" is.. i dont have the parts anymore.. i use what is on here. you cant center and lay parts flat with your printing software before generating Gcode?

replicator g has been able to do that for a very very long time. seems like a basic function to have in printer software. how do you manage without that?

Instructions

print one cone and one holder

small cone works really well
large cone is untested fully, my print failed half way through

"iphone speaker stand" shoots the music out in the direction of the screen and must be printed with external support turned on

iphone bottom straight shoots the music straight out the bottom. the hole will need to be drilled out with a 3/8" drill bit

they work incredibly well
Seems like in axon its having a problem aligning the speaker stand to the printing bed. Its making the part intersect the built plate and when run in the rapman gives the error of negative Z value and terminates. Can you upload the actual part file or realign the axes so i can print the base?

Thank you!

Nice mod :} 1 suggestion: if you want to make another "mega" that is more compatible with shape of the phone, you could try to make a tuba style look, i guess it will remove most of the height of the horn ^;^ have fun all
I guess "tuba" is a bit vague... What i thought of was apperently called a "Sousaphone" it looks something like this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sousaphone
GREAT print! and its loud! I had to acetone the horn into the slot, because i broke off the nub trying to file it down.
Hahahah that is SO COOL!
Very nice. How does it sound?
i made a huge one it super loud 85mmx 100mm horn
sounds great but still needs a few modifications. i tried to add a stand to it (you can see it in one of the images) and after taking the horn off a few times its not staying in there so well now.

its unreal how loud the horn makes the normal volume of the phone.
