    You sure did, im trying to tackle the technical hurdles at this point. Printing with a SLA printer solves the resolution and clarity issues but Iím not sure how to create the model yet.

    I downloaded your pannier strap data at thingiverse.com and made it. However, I was not able to give you tips because your thingiverse.com setup does not have settings for receiving tips. Anyway, thank you.. Regarding lenses, it is usually translucent. But many 3D print materials have a problem for this issue. Which 3D print material do you intend to use? I am wondering whether SLA printer has clear translucent resin. I am a FDM guy.

    Awesome! How did yours come out? I have no idea how to enable tips, Iíll check it out later.

    SLA can do some crazy stuff, check out this Benchy fresh off the printer.

ID:	386657 It has some rough edges. But it is enough for myself. Printed by Qidi X-One2 and Sunlu TPU+ filament.Your benchy example is fine. According to my limited knowledge about SLA, SLA needs more careful handling and procedures. Like eye protecting glasses, hand protecting gloves and washing resin tank. Also SLA resin is much expensive than FDM TPU. I am afraid your selling price would jump up. Today, generic Chinese LED number plate light unit is available at just $3. At Futura pannier strap, there is no alternative other than you made it. But there are several alternatives for number plate lighting unit. This is just my opinion.

    He wants to print a part of tail lights assembly - turn signals lenses. Not a number plate lighting.
    English is not my native language, so please be kind to my mistakes.

    Remember, this is an Italian bike with an Austrian motor, it isn't like the GSXR you use to own...

    I know it. Here is generic Chinese LED tail light unit and probably more durable and blighter. However this may spoil beauty of Futura.
    So making genuine Futura looking casing and internal of this parts might be better option.
