Hi everyone,

Sorry for long silent absence, but decided to share the pics from another one collaborative project with my father. It's the time to assembly the things in cases, so of course TC is the best solution to design them. The next step is to find a company to bring drawing in the wood. ;D

Very nice, Igorun.

It's good to hear from you again.

Looks good Igor. It is always great fun to start a shop project by working it out in TurboCAD first.

I don't quite follow what you mean by "to bring drawing in the wood" (unless you mean marking and cutting), but if you want to 3D print some of the parts, there are places where you can add a wood or metal fill to a PLA base to increase its stiffness.  I haven't made any speaker enclosures, but I have been considering it.

There are other sites that will use CNC on "production grade" wood.  Whether you can get the type of wood you prefer for your enclosures would be something you'd have to ask them.  One site is https://www.nealscnc.com/; they specify both hardwood and plywood, along with laminates and "engineered wood" (whatever that is).  If you want to experiment with transparent materials, they also cut acrylic/plexiglas.  A bit of research indicated that HDPE (the stuff used in cutting boards) is acoustically quiet, if not actually dead.

Of course, if you decide to offload your production, try to find a place nearby so you can minimize shipping costs.

Nice project, hope it will succeed. As for CNC sites - I'm browsing cnczone mainly, as a major one
