3D model description
Here's a video of it in action...
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 Maker Faire Robot I printed on my dual extruder... I took a JPEG of the Make logo and traced it in Solidworks... I then extruded and filleted the robot and saved it as its own STL to be used in dual extrusion... I then designed a plate around therobot, added holes for screws and save that as its own STL... Lastly, I design 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...
3D printing settings
Pretty straight forward, You're going to want to dual extrude the plate and robot together... I used PLA Black for the plate and Bendlay for the robot 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
