Audio Switch and Volume Control Boxes
Audio Source Switch and Volume Control Boxes 1.1 • 2020-06-09  

3D Printer STL files for audio source switch and volume control boxes. JocysCom-Switch.zip file size ~11MB.

Below you will find parts and tools, which will help you to print and assemble audio source switch and volume control boxes. If you noticed mistakes, have questions or suggestions, know better component (available in EU and US), please write or send link to info@jocys.com • Project on Thingiverse.com

Parts were printed from PETG with Prusa3D i3 MK3 Printer. If your printer is not precise enough, printed parts may not fit into each other and may not look good.

If you made your own updates or changes, related to this project, please send me a link. I will add this link to your work on this page.

Why I decided to make my own switch? Ground wires of both audio sources in many available to buy switches are connected together. Maybe this works perfectly in theory and manufacturers can use more available switches with less poles, but in reality this often creates audio noise. People use Ground Loop Noise Isolators to eliminate that noise. I wanted signal to go through Ground Loop Noise Isolator, when both audio sources are connected only. I wanted to merge and separate both audio sources easily with button. Also, I wanted to switch stereo microphone and headphones at the same time with ability to switch off microphone with button. With stereo microphone you can have better environment noise elimination options. I didn’t want to use powered audio mixers or interfaces, which processes (distorts) signal in any way.

Rotary Switch for Audio Source Switching

Taiwan AlphaCTSBourns

2020-05Taiwan AlphaSR2511F-0602-19R0B-E9-N-W-159Mouser (EU)€5

Taiwan Alpha rotary switch to switch between audio sources.
I didn't test Grayhill 2 deck (3 poles per deck) switches.

I would not recommend to buy cheap Chinese rotary switches. They are, usually, made from softer metal and after several dozen switches lose switching smoothness.

Audio Jack Extender

2020-05Amazon3.5mm Audio Jack Extender 3 inch€3

If you will use "Volume Box B" attached to a leg table, I would recommend to use short 3.5mm Audio Jack Extender. If you will forget, that you are wearing headphones, and will move from the table... before damaging headphones or "Volume Box B" disconnection from its holder, extender will bend and headphones will disconnect first.

Ground Loop Noise Isolator

2020-05NeoteckGround Loop Noise Isolator€8

If you will use "Audio Source Switch Box" and will merge audio sources with right button (to hear both computers at the same time), grounds of booth sources will be connected together. In some cases this can introduce background audio noise. To eliminate that noise, you can fit inside Ground Loop Noise Isolator. I used one by Neotec (it fits inside the box).

Eliminates Hiss, hum, and other background interference, caused by ground loop noise.
For any audio devices that has 3.5mm audio jacks, like car audio system, home stereo, PC, laptop, speaker.
Compact size makes it easy to carry around.
Easy installation, no extra setup. All you need to do is to plug it in.
Contents: Vinteam ground loop isolator, 3.5mm audio cable, user manual, 18-Month product replacement warranty.

2018-12Kester44 Flux-Cored Wire€25

Kester 44 Rosin Flux is an activated rosin formula for use in flux-cored solder wire. 44 has virtually dominated the field of activated rosin core solders for well over four decades. An outstanding performance feature of this flux is the “instant-action” wetting behavior. The high mobility and fast-spreading action of this flux results in more reliable production line soldering. 44 is classified as ROM1 per J-STD-004.

Sn60Pb40 - 0.8mm - 3.3% Flux - melting range 183-190°C

Modified settings: PrusaSlicer > Print Settings > 0.20 QUALITY MK3 > Layers and perimeters

• "Ensure vertical shell thickness: disabled" - I had problems with thin 45° hanging angles when it was enabled.
• "Perimeters: 3" - infill pattern is less visible on surface.
• "Seam position: Rear" - I printed most of the parts with "Rear" setting selected. It created line at the back of the parts, but front and side surfaces were perfectly smooth.

Modified settings: PrusaSlicer > Print Settings > 0.20 QUALITY MK3 > Inflill

• "Fill density: 80%".

Modified settings: PrusaSlicer > Print Settings > 0.20 QUALITY MK3 > Speed

• Reduced printing speeds (10-20-180-400). Slower speeds results in smoother and glossier surfaces without matte areas, reduces printing noise with vibrations... lesser probability for corners of big parts to unstick from heated bed, because of shrinking.
• Travel: 180 - low speeds (like 20) creates surface blobs after long travel distances.
• First layer speed: 10 - for better adhesion.

Modified settings: PrusaSlicer > Printer Settings > Original Prusa i3 MK3S > Custom G-code

• I added few lines to G-code to remove filament blob on nozzle right before printing starts and raised intro line to reduce wearing of steel sheet plate surface.
