3D printing – Shadow Light 3D print for Mercedes Benz W/S211 (E-class)

Mercedes Benz W/S211 (E-class) and W219 (CLS) 3D printed Shadow Light

You won’t find a suitable Shadow Light (Door Light, Welcome Light) for the Mercedes Benz W/S211 (E-class) and W219 (CLS) in the whole internet or in any online store?

No idea, why that is so, but it possible to print and assemble an own Shadow Light bracket, that fits Plug and Play in the existing Soffitten bulb socket.

Following things are needed for the Shadow Light
– Ball head screws (Tamiya Ball Connector 5mm SP-592)
– Wires 0.055mm2 in different colours
– Canbus/LED Driver electronic module
– Led projector with desired logo
– V2A micro countersunk head screws (1.2 x 6mm)
– Soldering iron and some “skilled craftsmanship”

The STL files for the 3D print are available to download at Thingiverse.

Initial situation

Following Soffitten Bulb (Festoons) and cover are factory default installed, in the door bracket from a Mercedes Benz W/S211 (E-class) and W219 (CLS).

The result

Electronic module circuit board / PCB

The circuit board is based on a central PT4115 and controls the power by means of a coil. Thus, the current is not converted into heat, respectively burned. The Glass Passivated Bridge Rectifier (MB10F) is used as pole reversal protection and allows an installation of the Shadow Light also in reverse direction.

When Apple saves the cable holder away on the 30W USB-C power adapter. Then you must plan, construct und print an own cable holder.

SCORCH – System Center Orchestrator Error “Cannot invoke this function because the current host does not implement it”

Summary

When you implement PowerShell scripts in Microsoft System Orchestrator runbooks, then may be you seen the following error when the runbook are executed.

“Cannot invoke this function because the current host does not implement it”

More Information

Der Error generatet by an “Write-Host” comment outside an invoke command or outside an second PowerShell session of the PowerShell script in the runbook. In my case, the “Write-Host” is available for testing purposes, to check the output of the PowerShell script.

When you run “Write-Host”, PowerShell asked to write on host console but due to no availability in Orchestrator of HOST console, we got error.

Solution

Commend out or delete all “Write-Host” commands outside an invoke command or outside an second PowerShell session.
