Inspired by tjoskar’s thread on his wooden enclosure, I would like to share my own wooden enclosure I had already built a year (or more) ago. There were already some pics of it on snips forum, which is offline now.
I’ve built six satellites for snips, which are now running rhasspy-voltron plus some custom code for led control and audio playback via sonos. They are driven by RPI3A+ and Respeaker 4-Mic Array.
The enclosures are done from different kind of wood (pine, oak, bamboo). The mics are hidden behind a 0.1mm thick paper like layer of wood, so they are working pretty good while being invisible.
Leds from respeaker are shining through a slightly thicker layer of wood (more diffuse transmission). While idle there is only a wooden square with a slowly breathing red led ring…
The whole project was done in F360 on a Shapeoko 3 XXL. I really love this thing!
