This is designed in Fusion360. Uses 2 AA batteries and flickering 3volt candle lights. Use clear PLA for the torch top. PLA for the bottom. Print it with the battery door in place, there is enough of a gap to remove the 2 parts after printing.
You can print the torch bottom and the battery cover together. You will need to pull it apart after it finishes printing. Make sure your first layer is not to low or the battery door and bottom of the torch will get stuck together. you will need to use a small drill bit to clean the hole out for the screw to hold the battery cover in.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
