Intro: 3d Printed Nightlight "Funny Kitten"

Nightlight "Funny kitten" for our favorite kids.

It is simple to make and safe for children.

In this, it was chosen powered by batteries and completely closed case.

LEDs arranged in a circle form a beautiful pattern.

And in the daytime, it's just a happy kitten on the wall.

I use the DC-DC Converter 0.9V to 5V for full use of a single battery

The case is printed on the 3D printer.

Step 1: We Need:

1. 3D printed case.
2. 11 LEDs 5mm diameter.

3. Soldering.

4. Wire.

5. Switch.

6. 350mA LED Driver NSI50350AS


7. DC-DC Converter 0.9V to 5V (on ebay or similar)

8. One battery AA 1.5V

Step 2: 3D Printing Case.

Print the box.

The top cover is printed with the change of the filament during printing.

Step 3: Assemble LEds and Battery.

Form wires LEDs in the same direction, as shown in the picture.
Put them in a box inside the perimeter.
