Parts List

STL files for 3D printing are oriented to print "as-is" on FDM style machines. Parts are designed to 3D print without any support material. Original design source may be downloaded using the links below.

  • matrix-handle.stl
  • matrix-frame.stl
  • speaker-holder.stl
  • 2x handle-ball.stl
  • foot-left.stl
  • foot-right.stl
The 3D printed parts in this project are designed for this specific RGB LED Matrix (PID 2278)
Spring-Loaded handle design was inspired by Turbo Sunshine https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4382544
The frame requires a minimum bed size of 265mm x 135mm.

Install Ball to Handle

Two hemispheres (handle-ball.stl) are joined together to form the ball of the handle. They're are press fitted over the tip of the spring-loaded handle. Domes features recesses to accommodate for the handle. Optionally use glue to bond the domes to the handle.

Spring–Loaded Handle

The handle features print-in-place parts that require good bed leveling and sufficient active cooling. Overhanging geometry is supported by surrounding features. No supports are required. The handle and gears are printed with loose tolerances to avoid fusing.

Support Material for Frame

The frame requires support material. Enable supports in the slicing software to generate scaffolding to support overhanging geometry. Use the following recommended settings:

  • Support Placement: Everywhere
  • Support Overhang Angle: 80
  • Support Pattern: ZigZag
  • Support Density: 4%
  • Enable Support Brim: No
  • Support Z Distance: 0.22mm
  • Enable Support Interface: No
