I wanted to make a 7-segment LED with a 3D printer.
Model the resin part of a 7 segment LED in Blender. I modeled the 7-segment part and the LED, respectively, and subtracted the LED from the 7-segment part.
Slice with Cura. It's small and seems to take about 30 minutes to print.
I use the Anycubic I3 Mega for my 3D printer.
It's cheap, but it prints very nicely.
From the front, it has a faintly 7-segment vibe.
Plug in the LED from behind.
I made it glow
This is what it looks like when we shine each segment. The original 7-segment LED was made.
Now we know that we can make LEDs for many different designs of segments, not just 7-segment LEDs. Now, what kind of original segment of LEDs shall I make?
