cornell researchers 3D print a fully functional loudspeaker (video)

cornell researchers 3D print a fully functional loudspeaker (video) | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it


Researchers at cornell university have created a fully functioning loudspeaker, seamlessly integrating the plastic, conductive and magnetic parts, using only 3D printers. the piece of audio equipment was developed by apoorva kiran and robert maccurdy, graduate students in mechanical engineering, who are working with hod lipson, an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering.


‘everything is 3D printed,’ explains kiran. ‘it even consists of plastic for the housing, a conductive coil and a magnet,’ he adds. ready for use almost as soon as it comes out of the printer, the speaker only requires minimal assembly before it can be hooked up to an external device. to make it work, the electronic components are made with two customizable 3D printers: a special silver ink extrusion is used for the coil and a viscous blend of strontium ferrite is used for the magnet.

Additive Manufacturing Technology and Smart Packaging: A Reality Check

Additive Manufacturing Technology and Smart Packaging: A Reality Check | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

"The current state of AM technology does not appear to be able to overcome the hurdles that exist at the intersection of smart packaging and RFID. But, the Industrial Revolution occurred over 60 to 80 years, so industry may just have to wait to see if AM is truly the next revolution, and if it can conquer the challenges such as those presented with printing RFID."

Susanne Kahle's curator insight, June 27, 2013 9:56 AM

Interesting article regarding several aspects of 3D Manufacturing/3D Printing technology (Speed, Material, Costs) - especially an incoming more or less "seamless" integration of RFIDs within the production process adds a lot of potential. 

Beth Robinson's curator insight, June 28, 2013 6:32 PM

Great article evaluating whether the current 3-d printing tech is sufficient to carry out what sounds like a neat idea to solve an existing problem in adopting a different leading-edge technology The answer is no, but the thought process is worth reading.

Disney researchers use 3D printing to create simple displays and sensors (video)

Disney researchers use 3D printing to create simple displays and sensors (video) | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

"A group of engineers at Disney Research in Pittsburgh has demonstrated a range of new 3D printing techniques, allowing for the integration of elements such as displays and sensors into cheap, printed objects. The new approach takes advantage of recent developments in the types of materials that can be employed in 3D printing, focusing in particular on "high resolution transparent plastics with similar optical properties to plexiglas."
