Fox Viking themed light switch plate
The wall plate size may be smaller than the real light switch wall plate. You can go to Two Fox Viking themed light switch plate for the bigger wall plate.
How I printed:
1 turn off enable retraction option
2 Fill density 100%
3 print speed 45 (mm/s)
4 print temperature 180
My printer is RepRap from the MOST Athena Printer http://www.appropedia.org/Athena_Build_Overview
I use PLA red 1.75mm ( the real diameter is 1.94 mm)
How I create the model:
I download the fox image from https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/46/34/60/4634602d5f438f4ff0c5290c86a8d25a.png
I use Inkscape to convert 2D cat image to generate path to openSCAD.
I use openSCAD to design light switch plate with Key Racks. I open cat.SCAD file in openSCAD and then copied all the code and pasted them into my light switch plate with Key Racks.
I use Inkscape to convert 2D image to generate path to openSCAD.
The problem is installing the software.
My laptop is Mac.
I downloaded the Inkscape software from https://inkscape.org/en/learn/books/
I need to download XQuartz software from https://www.xquartz.org/
To use the function OpenSCAD converter from Inkscape, I need to add these two files into Inkscape extension folder from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25036
In Mac, these files are hidden. I need to use terminal to find these files and then move them to Inkscape folder by using these commands.
mv paths2openscad.py ~/.config/inkscape/extensions/
mv paths2openscad.inx ~/.config/inkscape/extensions/
