Here’s a 3D printed T10 lamp shade that I designed and printed last night. A few weeks ago while searching for LEDs, I noticed an ebay listing for very inexpensive 12V automotive lamps that combine nine bright white LEDs. I believe these are sometimes called “wedge lights,” and are used as turn signals or interior lights.
Because reprap printers typically operate with 12V power supplies, I figured this would be a perfect way to light up the print bed. When the lamps arrived last night, I got out the calipers, worked up a design, and printed it out. I had a little difficulty removing the support material, but I’m pleased with the results.
The ebay listing for the LEDs (which were $1.50 for two) was titled “2 pcs WHITE Xenon SMD 9 LED HID 194 168 T10 Car Light.” It was designed exclusively with OpenSCAD.
