Wall Switch Plate - When switching to the Dark-Side can save you money by ICEPICKTONY Aug 19, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

Now I know why Vader was so angry. He saw his electric bill.

I made this as a reminder that following in Vader's footsteps is not only fun, but can save you some cash as well.

This is a slightly over sized wall switch plate cover. Switch to Vader to go to the Dark Side (off), or to Luke to stay on the light side (on).

I'm going to print one this weekend for my classroom. When I teach stop animation my kids laugh at all my Star Wars Action Figures :)

Made this and put it on the switch in my classroom (I am a middle school teacher) - so far - only the adults 'get' it. Looks great.

I'm one of those old timers who didn't like the new movies. LOL!

After printing, I used a black Sharpie to color in the lettering for Luke, and the plate for Vader.

Shouldn't it say Anakin on the top??? (This was a comment from my Facebook friend after I posted your cool idea!)

awesome! can you modify it for dual extrusion? thatd be neat for the colors.

ICEPICKTONY on Aug 29, 2013 said:

I have not done that before, so I am not sure how to yet. I will look into it and see how hard it is. As I dont have a Dual Printer (Rep2 in use), I would need someone else to test the print though. Let me see what I can come up with.

Awesome idea!

By the way, with modified geometry it would be possible to get the coloring done by filament using a single pause-at-z. For example, if the luke-side was slightly recessed with raised letters, then nearly whole plate could be printed in white, paused about three layers before the end, and then color-swapped to black for the finishing touch. :)

What?! put the force out of balance? :D
Hey, it lacks a black screw in the white area, btw!
