Looks awesome mate!

I wonder if optics could be 3d printed.

Thanks. I doubt optics could be printed, usually injection moulded for the required smooth surfaces.
Could have installed the usual Carclo but wanted to do a mule build for a change Thumbs Up

Another awesome creation CRX! Seems strange to call it a “mule” (ie. no reflector) when it looks so classy.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I just noticed its a 22mm head lol. I was in awe of the light!

I think the 3d printing is an interesting concept i was reading about people 3d printing glass.
Imagine the opportunities we would have if we could print our own lenses and optics.

LOL, I made an update to the ME4056… Can’t cut the wire holes off to reduce size more, the holes are vias to the other side components. I should have realized that before suggesting, let alone finding out after I cut it, wired direct to components and mounted it. Facepalm

There were several with that one. After a while I was numb and it didn’t hurt anymore.

Astonishingly nice work as ever Stevi…….

It looks like it could be a steampunky sort of disguised torch clipped seamlessly into a gap on Cap’n Nemo’s brass bedstead, for when he needs a nocturnal pish….. Then a faux-telescope Stainless extension sort of thingy.

Maybe I’m tired…..

Superb mate

It does this when “telescoped out”

Hows that wee copper fella, lost or dead yet? Smile

That looks like a really cool album cover…..

The little copper fella is still going strong. I haven’t lost him since that sickening few hours when he went walkabouts not long after I got him. He gets a lot of use. Love him to bits. I’ll be so sad when he bites the dust.

They can be 3D printed the company luxexcel does it.
http://www.luxexcel.com
It is expensive.
And they are ceartified for medical lenses in glasses

But I doubt lenses can be done with a home printer.
But a Formlabs form 2 can do light pipes, and you had to hand polish.

Nice creation! But what do you mean “telescoped out”? Is it a slide type host like many zoomies?

No I just meant when the aluminium sheath is not fully slid in place on the light. You can have that effect on multi emitter mule lights, try putting a triple in a tube if you have one and you can kinda focus the pattern by how far the light is in the tube, might keep the kids amused for a bit Smile
