Now you need a printed part of “BSL_LED Lamp_lightsocket.stl” and 4G lamp holder.
To attach the lamp holder to the “BSL_LED Lamp_lightsocket.stl”, you need to drill two holes with a diameter of 2 mm. Pass the two base wires through the hole in “BSL_LED Lamp_lightsocket.stl”. Hold both parts firmly together and drill two holes in the lamp holder in the printed part.
Screw the lamp holder with two screws Ø 2.2x 2.9 mm to “BSL_LED Lamp_lightsocket.stl”.
