Sure, give me a day or two and I'll add the file to the instructable. For a more professional looking version I was thinking of making it so it hid the battery completely and I'd print it in black, but since black photographs so poorly I printed it in gray for this.
Stl files are now available in step 4!
Sure, I'd be happy to post the files. I'll post the modified battery holder which should work on any camera, and ill also post the ring, which of course will fit a nikon 18-105mm kit lens.

Thanks so much! I'd love to see your finished photos once you give it a go.
I'm glad you liked it! This really does put out a good deal of light, and if you needed even more you could buy multiples of different size diameters and place them inside of each other for multiple layers of light.
Thanks Rick, you raise a good point about the white balance with the LED!
If you do not have a 3d printer I would definitely recommend buying a lens hood for the specific lens you will be using and attach the halo light to it. This way you can thread it on and off. In fact, since lens hoods can be put on backwards you might try attaching it backwards and then gluing your light directly to it. I have a photo of how I would do it with the lens hood in step 2. But the backwards method may be even better.
Very interesting. At the very least you break even and never have to mow the lawn again. Maybe you can sell the lawn mower!

Very nice. There are a lot of great fundamentals that you learned here. Soldering is key to so many great electronics projects. It looks like you learned quite a bit about 3D printing along the way too. One tip I recommend about 3d printing, is to become familiar with millimeters. I daresay you'll find it easier than inches once you get used to it, especially with small parts. How did the quadcopter do with flying?
Paper Bag Mask
Yes, that's true. I've heard soaking it in acetone may do the trick. Since I have quite an old one, the original finish is in bad shape. Not sure if it was originally painted or powder coated.
Nice! This would be great for re-coating stuff like a paintball gun. I wonder if you could solar bake the bigger stuff by using a large fresnel lens in the back yard.

I'm not going to lie, I had to use really small wires and it took more than one try.
Excellent instructable! You are clearly a very knowledgeable guy, thanks for sharing some of it with us!

Wow, I honestly couldn't wrap my brain around what your body was doing for a minute. It's safe to say that not many people can do this, or will ever be able to do this, but we can dream!

I made a camera/tripod lamp! Ok, I cheated a little bit and made it before I read through this class. So I didn't do all the wiring myself. But I did make an instructable for how I did it! https://www.instructables.com/id/Vintage-Camera-La...Also, I couldn't find a vintage tripod at the time for less than $200 so I build my own! I made an instructable for that too! I'm betting at least one person reading this will find it useful.https://www.instructables.com/id/Vintagte-Style-Ga...Thanks for the great class, I enjoyed it!
Thanks, I will check this out. Just ordered an arduino starter kit! I did take some programming WAY back in high school so I won't be totally lost I don't think.
Great job, this looks really useful! I especially love the way you calibrate it by pressing a button when your car's in the right spot. Perfect! I plan on using this idea for sure. Just as soon as I start learning Arduino.

Maybe not. One could argue that as long as you are passing along free information for free, then there is nothing wrong with it. On the other hand, terms of service for installing any game specifically say not to reverse engineer any part of the program. In their eyes they probably consider extracting game files to fall under that description. Although I remember in the old days of Half-Life, the 3d model files were simply sitting inside a folder in the game directory. Anway, nice instructable. There are a lot of games out there where people would like to have items from the game. Now it's completely possible!
Man I sure do love the way those pulleys look! Anyone know the name for it so I can search for some?

I forgot to say, great work on this bench. It's great to have something you use regularly that you made yourself. Also thanks for showing all your mistakes, it really does add a lot to the learning process for people watching. Well done!
One suggestion for doing Step 2 without a router. You glued up the slab first. Then you chopped away at making a spot in your slab for the legs to fit into. Instead you could have waited to glue the slab and placed all the boards together and marked out the spot for the legs. Then you could have pulled all the boards apart and cut the individual boards where you wanted the legs to go. Then reassemble and glue up your slab.

I came here to say this also. Heat always works perfectly for me.
Hmm that's really good to know. I've always just used a heat gun. It works great on glass, but it's a bit tricker on plastic. Although usually I save glass jars with metal lids.

Great video and fabulous looking end product! I was really surprised at how satisfying it was to watch you pour the resin onto the wood and also turn the bowl. Well done sir!
Nice work! Very simple and easy to understand. Just curious if you also know how to build a VU meter without arduino? I'd like to build one but would like to try it without arduino.
