I <3 3D PRINTING LED Sign/Nightlight

3D model description

Here's a video of it in action... The heart has it's own LED controller that continuously beats red. While the letters are controlled by the remote...

Here's a group I made for my LED lights and things, if you like my LED designs, join the group and you'll be updated as I upload new ones... I plan on making a lot more logos just like this. So if you have and suggestions, please tell me and I'll make it.

This is a extruded LED I <3 3D Printing sign/nightlight I printed on my dual extruder... I modeled it in Solidworks by importing a text that I liked from a screenshot... I then extruded and filleted the heart and letter and saved it as its own STL to be used in dual extrusion... I then designed a plate around the heart and letter, added holes for screws and saved that as its own STL... Lastly, I designed a shell to go around the plate and robot, the shell has aligned screw holes so it can be fastened to the plate...

I then printed the shell in regular ole black PLA on my Rep 2... And I did the dual extrusion using the same black PLA for the plate and I used Bendlay (link below) to print the robot... I used Bendlay because it is extremely translucent (91% of light passes through)...

I then hooked up an RGB LED strip, wrapped it around the inner shell and hooked it up to an IR receiver so it can be controlled with a remote...

Pretty straight forward, You're going to want to dual extrude the plate an letters together... I used PLA Black for the plate and Bendlay for the heart and letters due to the fact Bendlay is extremely translucent (91% of light passes through)... But you could use Natural PLA or a translucent filament, but they aren't as translucent as Bendlay is...

I did not print a floor on the plate and letters print so it would allow more light to pass through... I did too much infill (10% linear) on mine... I wish I would have done about 5
