3) height of dome

You might want to set things up so that these parameters would override the "ThroatDiameter" parameter. In other words, if the user selected a 25mm dome with a 5mm surround, that would yield a throat of 35mm. So if the user selected a throat of 25mm or 50mm, that would cause issues with the model. (Because there's a mismatch.) So you might want to have the dome settings "override" the "ThroatDiameter" setting in the config file.

Great idea Patrick Bateman!

I figured that would be the answer, I just wasn't sure if everyone and the kid down the block were buying their own 3D printers or if they were having them outsourced somewhere.

I modified a home-brewed Dayton H110 horn to an AMT and the results were fantastic for what I needed, but I'm torn as to how to make the aesthetics better. V1.0 was fiberglass/resin to match the throat to the AMT aperture. V1.2 (in the works) will be slicing/merging two H110 horns to get the throat dimension I need without resorting to fiberglass/resin. But of course a 3D printed horn would be even better!

Exit angle of the BMS 4554 is 26.7 (confirmed by BMS).
I have 2 pairs, Mk1 (metal brand plate) and Mk2 (plastic brand plate), exit angles are identical.

Hi mabat,

Thanks a lot for presenting your software here!

I just started to play around with it a bit and have a few questions/comments:
- There is a new gmsh-version 4.4 out. When I installed the gmsh-4.4.dll file, it didn't work. I had to install the 4.3-file. Is this ok - or would you update your prog to gmsh 4.4?
- I did run the 'small' example first. Had the same issue as previously described here, i.e. had to modify the output-folder path. Everything fine then.
- When running ath4 I got the ABEC project result and mesh-file. I'd appreciate to get a *.step-file as well, which would ease up the transfer to a CAD program to finally print the horn. Any possibility?

Quote:
I could make an option of a dome tweeter instead of a plane wave (which is what it is now) for the throat. At least I believe it would be possible. Only it is not so obvious how to do it. Should I include the surround? How to define the shape? Or does that make any sense at all?
This would be great. I fully agree with Patricks comments here.

Thanks again for this great piece of software,
Christoph

1) measure the diameter at the exit of the phase plug

2) measure the diameter at the throat

3) use the pythagorean theorem to calculate the exit angle

Yes, it's not obvious. The link is given at the main page:
Quote:
All versions: binaries and sources
The direct link for Windows is here under 'http://gmsh.info/bin/Windows/'.

Just download the 4.3. version.
