3D Printed light bracket finalised and dust cover for LED centre lights

Part evolution from initial concept to final co-polyester print, shown at the front the traditional bulb clear lens, LED amber indicator and LED ring light.

The final part:

Test fit with traditional bulb holder style clear lens indicator:

New LED centres, these don’t have the big tail and rubber seal out the back so it’s vulnerable to stone impacts and dirt inside the rear arches.

To solve the first/damage issue I’ve modelled up a dust cap, on the right version 1 printed in one part. The rough surface comes from removing supports. Version 2 on the left, printed in two parts, up the other way. That leaves a clean finish on the ourside from the print bed and clean surface without any overhang for the inside.

Version 2 split print in more detail, these parts are glued together using CA / Superglue

Wire clearance

Wire cap in place

The end is shaped so that shrink tube can easily be place over the cables to protect them
