Engineers produce first 3D printed consumer electronic

Cornell University researchers have 3D printed a working loudspeaker, integrating the plastic, conductive and magnetic parts, and ready for use almost as soon as it comes out of the printer.


The loudspeaker is a project led by Apoorva Kiran and Robert MacCurdy, graduate students in mechanical engineering, who work with Hod Lipson, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and 3D printing innovator.
