a small gift for valentine,

you only need a led candle to fit in

print it with white or translucid pla or ABS (white ABS work well) not transparent, the infill will be visible.

built in support for the reverse step under the base, will easily break off

built in reinforcement (with a small hole) at the back of the heart


print it 0.2 mm 2 perimeters, 0.1 honeycomb infill

open the candle move the led a few mm upward and sold it, to light the heart not the base

clip the bottom part of the candle (the one with the battery and led and switch) in the bottom of the base- may be you'll have to use a knife to fit it

and youre done with blinking light in the heart

a geek gift isn't it ?

Very nice thx!

This is great model... and it saved my bacon! I had completely forgotten an anniversary and I managed to print this and hack together a LED light inside. Left it next the bedside table for my wife and presto: she was stoked.

Always love builds that don't require supports. This was very clean design and worked first time out of the blocks.

Well done!

Nice - though I might need to adapt it for slightly different led candles which I have. They seem to have a thicker base that doesnt sit flush. Additionally I would recommend printing without infill and more perimeters if using a translucent PLA as the infil is quite visible when lit.
