It's a safety light for your bike that doesn't need batteries. Ever. It also has smart on/off function. Light turns on when you start moving and turns of about 5 seconds after you stop moving.


Oprimal slic3r settings:
perimeter width 0,6mm
layer height 0.24mm
infill 15%
pla print temp. 190 degrees C

magnet_housing_v3 (repaired) needs to be printed with 3 lower layers, 0 upper layers, infill 0%, wall thickness 0.6mm, 2 perimeters or any other combinations that will lead to wall thickness of 1.2mm. (for example 3 perimeters with wall thickness 0.4mm).

You have 3 different coil housing options to use depending on your coil size.
Simplest to use is coil_housing_square with coil_housing_square_cover. This two files house a standard 24V, 10A relay coil such as: SRD-24VDC-SL-C. You don't have to "operate" the relay to get the coil out, you simply sand of one part of the relay and insert the whole relay.

coil_housing_square has a support modeled on the internal side which you simply snap off or drill out after printing. Its the only model that has or needs any kind of support.

​I added an extra file for longer coils.

Hey. Which slicer do you use? CuraEngine? Because you speak of perimeter width so I guess this is the overall perimeter width (including the external perimeter which is adjustable in slic3r).
