This is a generator for horns with tractrix crossection.
Those are not the same as spherical wave horns. See here:
under: Horn Theory: An Introduction, Part 1
and: Horn Theory: An Introduction, Part 2
Horns act as acoustic impedance matching transformators
transformating high pressure low speed to low pressure high speed sound waves or vice versa.
Note that the sizes that are printable on common personal 3D printers are only suitable for rather high frequencies (even for whistles).
Well as it turns out low frequencies get amplified as well.
cutoff frequency: 4500Hz
inlet inner diameter: 20mm
inlet outer diameter: 24mm
inlet pipe length: 5mm
horn length cropped to: 80%
cropped horn mouth diameter: 126.5mm
complete horn length: 129.9mm
tractrix segment length: 124.9mm
known problem: customizer can't deal with this file :(
found out: crop factor above 0.9000 works
