been thinning about how the XT90 Loop key sticks out the side on my last build and not a fan of how venerable it feels. Considering my current build in progression has a unity and DieBieMS I would like to mainly use a momentary switch but with a loopy as a back up just in case. started looking for a neater alternative discreet place to hide it and @Skunk suggested
I quite like how neat discreet and out the way it would be. The down side was I had intended to put some head lights there. After some thinking about how to have my cake and eat it I ordered a pair of
with the idea of combining them all iv come up with.
has any one got any experience using car daylight running lights on a esk8? what’s the light like and will I need to worry about the angle their mounted at? what material should I be thinking about printing it in? PETG?
great idea, only thing those lights are pretty dim. i have them on one of my boards.
they won’t do much for lighting up your path, just letting others see you better.
Bought those lights in red; turned out to be orange. xd Can concur they are just for visibility.
Thanks thought it might be 110 lumins from 9w is awfully. modern LED are quoting 700ish lumins from 9w.
Guessing it’s to do with a very wide angle and China over estimating there power. There just a grate little size and package to stay permanently on the board. Will have to look in to getting some thing I can attach and detach as well for when it’s more than just a trip to the shops or pub.
The charge port and loop key is killer. I hate having a loop key on the side and cutting holes in enclosures for them. Could also put a momentary power button opposite the charge port as well.
This is my first print with the 3d printer so still some tweaking to get a decent print out of it. Any tips welcome
Made a big mistake and filled in to much of the head light surround so the truck base dosent fit I had thort about it then forgot when I made the STL File but this is a easy alteration to make as I just need to chop out a L shape on watch side.
