Weld-on it is then. I guess I was overestimating the amount of wood in the wood filaments.

thanks,

Here's how mine came out:

Printing at 102% to fit the hole pattern of the substitute speakers worked perfectly.

Thanks.

Default settings. Medium res, .2mm layer height, .35 nozzle. Hatchbox wood.

They sound awesome. I have a set of B&W speakers (the Nautilus speakers that these are copying are B&W). Mine are DM110i studio monitors. These 3d printed speakers sound better than the real deal. Granted, they don't get nearly as loud, but at "can still have a conversation" volume everyone that has listened side-by-side prefers the sound of the 3d printed.

Crazy, right?

cheers,
c

Man that hatchbox wood filament is just amazing . I stock up on it every time it comes back on Amazon. Great print.

The color is not quite as light as the photo. The room where the speakers are is dark so I had to use my camera flash and it washed them out a bit. The color is pleasing, but I may hit them with a light stain or something. The next time I print something in wood I'll experiment with finishes. Those speakers were (4) 14hr prints, so I don't want to mess with them before testing on something else.

Also, I made two little cylinders that are glued inside to give the wire terminals something to bite into.

cheers,
c
