Make Your Own Set of 3D Printed Egg Speakers

- Oct 18, 2018-

Heine Nielsen, a 37-year-old maker from Denmark who goes by the name dr_frost_dk on Thingiverse, is always up for trying out "totally untested" projects. After spending two decades building amps and speakers, Nielsen decided to try out 3D printing last year and see if it would be a good way to make an enclosure for audio speakers.

We've definitely seen plenty of 3D printed speakers before, along with headphones, earbuds, and other audio equipment, like CD players and mics. After Nielsen saw how strong some of the 3D printed parts were that his friend had made, he was inspired to give it a shot with a fun pair of 3D printed audiophile egg speakers. He told 3DPrint.com that he has been developing this project "for about a year."

You can find STL files for 3″, 4″, and 5″ egg speakers on Nielsen's Thingiverse. The directions for the project vary a little, depending on which size you go with.

Nielsen explains step by step how to complete this project, starting with cleaning up your 3D printed egg speakers “so they look their best” and then drilling two 5 mm holes in the back of the egg for the speaker wire connection.
