will be printing these out when i get home will let you know

i like your design. i am working on a non electrical form of funneling sound in a more directional way.. kind of simple background noise elimination or reduction system.. while also amplifying targeted sound.. i am thinking something like animal ears which can turn to hear in different directions.. but augmented to enhance directional sound where the ear is aimed. and funneling it into the ear canal.
btw.. something that might be usefull is to print calipers (you can find them on thingiverse.. i found one that is very good.. and used that to measurd various parts of the ear, to do a fitting before printing.

I invite everyone to print these off, and let me know how they fit. These likely wont fit everyone, so I will need to make a few versions.

What scale should this be printed ?

Hi waran14. They should be printed in full scale, 1:1. My 3d printer is down unfortunately, so please give me some feedback on how they fit. If the format needs to be changed for easier printing let me know as well. I welcome your suggestions.
