The Minimized Gramophone 'airhorn' is a multi-fuctional accessory for your iPhone.
It can become an acoustic amplifier, a stand and a charger if the lightning cable pluged in. When you put the cable into your bag, the airhorn can also be a cable winder.
This is its gold plated version.
Frankly, when I placed an order for this in brass, I did not expect that Shapeways could make it because of its complex tube-shaped structure.
It took a few more days than the target ship date, but I was pretty amazed when I received it.
Its quality was much better than my expectation, and it was really beautifully done.
My order was for raw brass material because it had thickness under 0.8mm in some part. When I tried to polish it, I found out that Shapeways printed it in three parts and then welded them together. However, the welding lines were almost invisible. After some sanding and polishing work, I had it gold-plated.
I deeply appreciate Shapeways' effort to make it real for me.
I really want to offer for sale, but I am not sure whether it is going to be always in the same condition due to its complexity.
Anyway, thanks a lot for this precious piece, Shapeways.
