Can someone make me a CAD drawing/file?

Hi all,

I have my body sleeves 3D printed but the machine shop where I usually get them is having equipment failure troubles at the moment. I was thinking about trying an online service but I have no CAD experience. I would be happy to pay someone to do this. I can provide a detailed set of measurements etc.

In Him (Jesus Christ) was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

would gladly make you an STL file for 3d print, done it many times, even more complex ones. but no cad. what are you printing it with? if abs, allow for shrinkage, i had to adjust the file/reprint some parts several times, to get them right, thou looking at your part 1-2mm off may not be that critical..

I can give it a shot if you haven’t already got it. I do a little freecad but I’m not that great at it. Also, you should get your own 3d printer, you can print these really cheap if you have the printer. Then you’re not dependent on someone else to make them.

If you are interested in rotation figures, I can write a tutorial for AutoCAD software. These are 2, 3 simple commands.

Looks like a pretty simple part to doodle up.

If anyone has experience with any of those services I would like to know your experience and what you recommend.

That is an awesome looking light BTW. I had one here once that looked similar, it was a Navy ship light from the 19xx . Very cool, built robust and waterproof.

What material do you want it printed in? You could probably get someone on here to print and ship them to you for less than paying a service. Start another thread asking if anyone can print them for you. How much were you paying the machine shop?

I’ve only printed with pla which isn’t good for high temperatures.

Commonly referred to as a “battle lantern”. I have most of the parts to build it but lost access to a CNC milling machine before I got a chance to make the custom parts.

BTW, TaskLED has a new “UltraBoost” driver. ;^)
