Update (7/25/19): After a month+ of periodic removal and usage, the attachment point between the LEGO LM and the LM Mount printed piece got loose enough that the LEGO easily tipped. I adjusted the dimensions just a tad and it is now quite snug. All files have been updated accordingly.
Shortly after receiving the LEGO Saturn V set as an anniversary gift from my awesome wife, I stumbled upon a tutorial by Asa Miller where he details his project to add an LED exhaust plume. I immediately determined that this was a MUST-ADD for me and it ultimately re-ignited my interest in mechatronics projects that had laid dormant since college. Since then I’ve gotten the LEGO Lunar Lander as well as a 3D printer, so I decided to give both the full-treatment and add a number of extra features.
Only the 3D printed parts are included here on Thingiverse. The full tutorial is located here:
I have included the STLs as well as the original Fusion 360 file and a STEP file to make mods easy for those who would like to.
Print one of everything, most all of it was printed in Gray PLA. The following were printed with clear PLA:
For the lights, the filament was changed mid-print and the text was printed in Black PLA.
Videos of it all in action:
If you print, please post a make as I'd love to see how yours turns out! Also, any feedback is appreciated!
