3D Printed Parts

Download and 3D print the parts on your 3D printer. If you don't have access to a 3D printer, you can send the STLs files to a service like 3DHubs.com

Material

I used a golden colored PLA from MeltInk3D. This could be printed in any color, but printing it in gold avoided having to spray paint it. If you're new to 3D printing, I suggest using PLA because it's the easiest material to print with. It doesn't require a heated bed and prints on most FDM 3D printers.

Supports & Orientation

I designed the parts to print without needing any support material. They are already oriented in the correct orientation to 3D print, so you can print them as is. They should be positioned in the center of the bed.

You can decide weither you need a raft, glue stick, blue paint, etc. I printed my parts on a glass heated bed.

ffh-head.stl

The speaker hits in here. The part connects to the neck.

ffh-neck.stl

This part connects to the base.

ffh-base.stl

This part connects to the rod.

ffh-cap.stl

This is a cover that snaps onto the bottom of the handle.

ffh-rod.stl

One end has a coil that twists onto the bottom of the base. The other end snaps onto the top of the handle.

ffh-handle.stl

The pushbutton, battery and electronics all fit inside the handle.

Post-Processing & Finishing

I didn't do any finishing techniques on this project, but you totally can! The parts don't have much detail, so they should be relatively easy to sand, spray paint and smooth.
