Large Seven-Segment Display Sized for 5mm LEDs

3D model description

Here's a 3D printable, large seven-segment display that fits 5mm LEDs!

This was designed to fit with Printrbot Play 3D printer, which has a smaller build dimension that renders it incapable of printing other large seven-segment displays.

Here's the Tinkercad links:

Segment: https://tinkercad.com/things/boqS9T1wq6t

3D printing settings

Print seven of the segments, preferably in a natural PLA so that the LED light can shine through more easily.

Print one display case. If printing with a Printrbot Play, you'll have to disable the skirt so that the display case fits on the printer bed. I recommend a 15% infill.

Note that you cannot scale the display and it's segements within your 3D printer software, otherwise the 5mm LEDs won't fit.
