This is the casing to a vibration sensing, automatic lighting unit for my Lima Junior Coach units. I wanted to be able to light the inside of my coaches, but didnt want to run it off track voltage (in this case DC) and am not going to switch this layout to DCC yet. The answer was a microcontroller based unit that could sense vibration and turn on the lights for a set amount of time. This 3D print is the cover for the controller and battery that hangs under the coach. It also gives the coaches a more realistic look as most coaches have various boxes under them.
I have updated this with the clamp to hold the battery in. I found it useful to drill the holes out by hand before turning in very fine screws to prevent splitting, as the object walls are quite thin.
The complete description can be found on my blog here
