Spotlight GU5.3

3D model description

I needed a small spotlight for something and realized I had some nice LEDs with GU5.3 socket, ment for 12 volt.

Hardware needed:
2x small screws for fixing the socket to the skirt thing, I used M3 with a small head.
1x M4x15 or equivalent as horizontal hinge.
1x M3x12 or equivalent as vertical hinge.
1x M3 nut for the above.

You'll of course also need a GU5.3 lamp and the socket itself.

I haven't tried this with halogen lamps and I wouldn't recommend it unless they are very low power(<10W) or you print it with a plastic that can withstand higher temperatures.

Check my youtube channel to see how it was made and how to assemble it!

3D printing nerd and wannabe-engineer. Making random projects from RC trucks to nerf guns, interested in pretty much anything technology related.

Top projects are my RC vehicles:
3D printed half-track truck
-Fully articulated and driven treaded vehicle.
3D printed RC truck V3
-4x4 truck with full drivetrain model.
3D printed RC buggy V2
-RWD race buggy
3D Printed RC truck V4
-6x6 standalone truck chassis to build upon.

Been 3D printing since 2013, lately moving into mechanical design and metalworking.

I do youtube videos about most things I make.
