            You are right it looks much better than the very expensive ones (indeed too wide and bulky) and your solution is also alot cheaper

                    @matador

                    Thank you for sharing your project an the STLs.

                    The frets of my BL8000 have to be redone, I already have the fabric from Akustistoff, but new ideas come up to me 😉

                    Thanks

                    Merci beaucoup!

                      Hi guys

                      Something wrong with STL file. When I import in cura or other slicer. dimensions are small, like 2mm in hight small. Also STLs in folder are corrupted and wont open.

                      Can you resend files please

                      Thanks and regards

                        Hi,

                        Read the whole thread. depending on your software you may need to scale it by 10’s factor.

                        The STL’s have been checked tonight and look ok. Given no other member have report problem and some have even already printed them, I let you investigate from your side.

                        Regards.

                          Hi Matador

                          Is it possible for you to provide the original design file from the application that you used to create it with. Like Fusion 360, SketchUp or Tinkercad.

                          The reason is that I need to modify the model as the most used wooden frets here in DK are 5mm.

                            Hi Lemme,

                            Once the STL generated I didnt kept the original 3D file (which was Cinema 4D BTW).
                            But I think you can “de-construct” the .STL file, I’ve checked it with CAD Assistant and all the parts are visible and do not look like merged.

                            Actually, adjusting the witness of the slots is the worst and more complicated part of the whole design, at least with the tools I had at hand. So the slots were roughly designed flat with… the dashed line tool in a vector design software (!), adjusted to be centered and then extruded in 3D. I remember that adding a slot, adjusting the size of it or moving them one side or another made instantaneously a mess.

                            My advice if I may: use your 5mm wood fret, mark where the touch the clamps and correct the witness with a file just on the rear part of the lamella. I had to do this for two or three sticks that were beyond tolerance (wood is sold for 4mm +/- 2%).

                              Hi Matador
                              Thank you for a very swift response!

                              I can follow your trouble with creating all the wide slots in the correct angle – it must have been taken a lot of trial&error to get right.

                              As you sugget, I will try with CAD Assistant or similar tool first. If that do not work then you are right, I must adjust the wooden frets with a file.

                              Many thanks for you contribution!

                                Hi all
                                Here in Denmark it seems that 5mm frets are more easily available. I have therefore created clamps based on 5mm frets.

                                I have created new STL files based on Matadors original clamp design, but slightly changed. They are 5mm wide, a litte deeper in the groove and more curved. There is also 3 clamps now. A Top, Middle and Buttom.

                                The Top and Middle clamps rests on the speaker structure – and the Buttom just floats. You can choose to replace the Middle with the Buttom clamp if you wish.

                                The clamps were made in Fusion 360. I have provided both the Fusion 360 files and the STL files. That way you can adjust the clamps to your specific needs if needed.

                                Credits go to Matador for starting this. He also approved to add the files here.

                                      Waw, I did it and looks great. Thank you for sharing !

                                      Did someone manage to do it for the beolab 6000 ?

                                      I would really like to do the same on them.

                                          I have used larch wood, I am very much impressed how easy it was to give them a modern look! Thanks again so much for sharing the 3D files and the awesome user manual!

                                            Nice shade of wood and beautiful Beocorner you have there.

                                            Enjoy.
