3D PRINTED ADD-ONS
#DESIGN FOR ATTACHMENT #HACKING SOLUTIONS
Teenage Engineering developed a number a freely available add-ons to hack the IKEA frekvens speaker range. Enthousiasts can download the ready-to-print model, a photo and assembly instructions.
Teenage Engineering also shares which filament and printer they used to print the component as a reference.
This is a great example of how to add functionality to a mass produced item and increase the emotional value of a product.
