In her newest design - "Sway," a portable speaker, Designer Greer Garner uses 3D printing to create customizable parts that allows people can change according to their own style.
All of the external components of "Sway" are 3D-printed: the enclosure is made of nylon, spraypainted in navy, while the buttons and knobs are made of copper-coated resin and electroplated in gold.
Inside, the silk layer behind the speaker grills protects the electronics from dust and also adds nice color to it vintage design.

Being able to influence the look of the music player helps build a stronger attachment to the device and encourages people to think of electronics as something to be treasured. says the designer.
