This is a remix of SuperInfraMan's great Minecraft torch nightlight with a few changes:
I removed the base plate from the original model and designed a separate 'cleat' to mount the torch to the wall. This means all the fixings/screws are hidden away inside the torch for a cleaner look.
I made a cavity in the torch head leaving enough room to insert a coiled-up strip of RGB leds and added a lip to help keep the strip in place.
There was no tolerance built into the original model meaning I had a fair bit of sanding to do before I could put the pieces together once printed. I trimmed a quarter of a millimetre off of all the faces of parts that slide into another. It should now be a snug fit for most printers.
- 26/08/2018. Thanks to a suggestion by smma I added another base piece which you can use if you want to have the torch sitting upright or just use it handheld.
Since the base piece is printed at 45 degrees (which is a considerable overhang) I chose to print in PLA with my cooling fan on full so I could print without supports. The torch head was printed in a cheap transparent PLA. I primed the pieces with plastic primer from Halfords before painting them with acrylic paints. To protect the paint I then sprayed the parts with a clear spray lacquer.
For the lights I ordered a 5m RGB led strip from ebay since they already come with a remote and power supply. I opted for a 600 led version rather than a 300 led version as the denser strip makes for a more even light when stuffed into the torch head - I cut a 30cm long segment for each torch I made and wired them in parallel to the included power supply. The remainder of the led strip I'll keep for other projects. Lastly, thanks to chalkboard walls I was able to conceal the wires behind the wall.
Cheers to SuperInfraMan for the original design, my nephews love their nightlights.
