Rokytheman> the SB26 designs are all the same, regarding dome material. Basically I measure the metal domes first, then cut off the phase shield and measure the fabric dome, and remeasure the metal domes. I'll get some non-PS versions up, your right that it might risk a failed print.

kalleDH> The phase shield was damaged on that print so I never measured it. Next session I will measure it anyway with the phase shield.

Guerrilla> I did a bunch of phase shield variants early on, including the scalloped version below. There was only minor differences versus a simple disc of the same diameter (tested .47" and .25" diameter versions).

Awesome project, many thanks.

What kind of materials are recommended for 3D-printing a waveguide?

Slightly modified 6" waveguide to fit the ScanSpeak R2604. Works nicely!

A little off-topic-question, sorry for that...
I want to design wave-guides (and rear-mont) for fullrange Vifa TC9FD18. What shape/profile would you use for that ?

I would use more of a diffraction control than a real waveguide. Maybe a torus shape with TC9FD in the middle?

Default 5" waveguide

Hi Augerpro,

When I opened the 5x.75 G v5.stl file in a viewer it show the size as:

6x4x1 in millimeters. Would it be possible to get the file in real size?

Also question for those who are capable of modifying the files. Would it be possible to modify the 5inch guide for Seas 27tdfc?

Keep up the good work!

The size is in inches, you need to convert to metric. It can be hard or easy to modify the waveguide, depends on the geometry of the new tweeter.
