I got this challange from someone that is fixing up their old Volkswagen. The covers for the semaphores where horribly deformed from the heat from the bulb, so i was tasked to see if i could make new ones with a 3D printer.
I decided to use the Form 1+ since i already had the clear resin in the machine. I figured that the clear resin would be great since the cover needs to light up.
After cleaning off the supports and sanding the part, i installed the new cover in the semaphore to check the fit. I had to sand of the end a little since it was a really tight fit and i wanted it to be easier to install after i had spray-painted it.
Here is the result after spray-paining the part and installing it in the semaphore. Great success (i said with a Borat voice in my head…:) )
I had ONE can of orange in my shop, and luckily it was damn near perfect to the original color.
