These are the printable parts required to build a "Speaky".

I created this case to hold a set of desktop speakers and a Raspberry Pi that I'm using as an Airplay receiver. I based the case design (loosely) on some mid-century speakers I found on Google Images.

The bolts holding the backplate on were generated using aubenc's "Poor man's openscad screw library". I've also included a modified version of the bolt that act as a cable organizer.

More photos and details of this project can be found in this blog post.

Print Settings










Print the main body of the print with supports enabled. The other parts will print fine without raft/supports.

The main body is a long print (13 hours!) so made sure your platform is nice and level before starting.


  1. Print BoomBox1_TNH with supports. (raft optional)
  2. Print BoomBox2_TNH & BoomBox3_TNH without supports

Dear TheNewHobbyist,

Thank you for the great artistic work. They are awesome.

Sir, please could you share with me, and may be other newbies like me, how you smoothed the surfaces of the turtles. They look very smooth.

Thank you

This is awesome! but it appears as the threads on BoomBox3_TNH.stl are the wrong direction, BoomBox3_Wirewrap_TNH.stl threads fine in to BoomBox1_TNH.stl.

Whoops! Thanks for the heads up, I'll to get some replacements uploaded soon.

This design inspired me to buy these speakers and to attempt to fashion my own case. Thank you for the idea!

That's awesome, good luck with your prints!
