SRex shared this project on Thingiverse!

I made this for my son’s room. He loves gears and turning the lights on and off. This design fulfills both those hobbies. For this build you need to print:

3x small gears

3x handles

2x large gears

1x light switch plate

1x pinion

2x washers

The handles go on the small gears.
The washers go between M3 bolts and large gears

If your not comfortable replacing a light switch plate or threading a hole please don’t try this.

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!
