(Out of the shadows solar light)
This thing is a solar garden light that is 3D printable.
Printed in ABS filament and glued together with acetone
The design was born from the desire to have a bright and reliable solar light,one that would be very bright,lighting up an area rather that just be for decoration.
I was tired of seeing only tiny,not fit for purpose solar led lights.
So i have designed my own 3D printed version.
The sides of the unit are bevelled on all edges so that once glue is applied the main body becomes very rigid and strong.
The windows are 1.0 mm thick printed clear ABS filament or cab be laser cut out of acrylic sheet.
More updates and build photos to follow shortly,enjoy :-)
