Overhead annunciators - A Boeing 737-800 Homecockpit #37
After some weeks of 3D printing, cutting, engraving, soldering and painting nearly 100 annunciators are finished. These will be needed in die lower overhead. I printed the boxes in two pieces and to avoid support structures, but there are also people printing this in one piece. Just try out what works the best for you. In the download package you will find the seperated parts as well as a complete model.
Keep in mind that you have to make the engraving deeper if you want to fill it with wax. 0.4 mm worked fine for me.
Dear Mike, I watch your videos ever, simply are fantastic! I have a question for the Cnc machine. What drill you use for engraving the text on the plexiglass? Is it possibile send me the name the drill or a link internet where from buy ? Thanks for the support.
I use a 36° engraving bit with a 0,3mm tip. I went into details about this in my last Livfe-Stream. You can see this part here CNC-Topic. The tool can be found here.
Buy now!! 🙂
Thanks for the reply and availability.

Shortly said – it is wax. You can rub it in and it hardens. I used this one: Wax
