At Autodesk University, a group of attendees participated in a Product Innovation Platform track organized and designed by Autodesk’s Garin Gardiner. Participants designed the speaker starting from the speaker body in Autodesk Fusion 360 and the circuits in Autodesk Eagle as well as generating the CNC G-code to machine the parts. Those that were not enrolled in the special track could line up in the exhibit hall to use Fusion 360 Production on a tablet and gather components such as Pocket NC making the wood speaker bodies and assemble their own speaker. As you can imagine, these speakers were very popular and the wait in line could be up to 2 hours before you secured a position to make your own speaker. The purpose was to show beginning to end process of design and making. Some participants assembling their speaker said they had not seen some of the equipment and processes used before and it was nice to see and participate in person.
Yesterday I finally got my parts and some time to assemble my speaker.
I decided to sand mine and then apply a sealant to show off the walnut grain.
How sweet is this for something you got to make at AU?
For those wanting to make your own speaker, Garin told me they are considering other opportunities for people to assemble and make their own speakers such as Design Nights or other events as well plans are to post the entire files and instructions on Instructables.com.
Autodesk University always has the best speakers in the industry- both human speakers and customer audio speakers.
