This is a battery plug that you can fully customize to include your FRC Team's name and number. You need to own some sort of cad program, and must have some sort of a background with cad. This will work on almost any 3d printer, and is very useful to indicate the charge state of your batteries.

Edit 1:
-Added prt file for easier customization!

Edit 2:
-Added stp file for use with solidworks and other programs!


This model will work on almost all 3d printers. I have found from previous experience that it works best with abs plastic. If the model appears to be too small, you may need to scale it up 9x.
Thank you!!
-Team 4293

could you please post the CAD file So i can edit this directly?

Ok, so i did some research about how this customizer program works, and it uses a csg file. I think that if i want to upload it to customizer, i might have to remake the whole thing. I might do this sometime in the future, but it probably wont be any time soon.

i am looking for the file now.. it should be posted within the hour or so..
I am thinking about making this available on makerbot customizer so you can just type your team number and the software will do the rest!

That would be even better! Thank you! If you could do Team Number and Text that would be great too!

I just uploaded the prt file, and now i will try to upload the Customizer file soon (i don't know how to do it yet =P)

No Problem!!
Good luck in the competition!!

This would be awesome for our team too! You could just upload the .stp file onto thingiverse so we could edit it in inventor or solidworks.

OK, i just posted the stp file!

Thank You! Good luck at competition

OK! i will have the stp file up soon (don't know if it will be up tonight)
