Description

This is a 3D printed flashlight that I created and printed myself. It's a pretty easy print and shouldn't need any support material. I've included two options, printing in 3 parts and screwing together, or printing as one piece. I would recommend trying to one piece option as it frees up some room for wires to occupy. If anyone creates one I'd love to see it!
