This is my instructable for how to build a high power UV LED flashlight to hunt scorpions with. 
I call it the Scorpion Stinger.

   

KRRRL:
I wonder how well that UV LED Flashlight would light up our 3D prints.  Josh printed out the Xerocraft logo in glow-in-the-dark PLA, but it glowed dimly.  When I took that print up to Heatsync hackerspace in Mesa, Nate iluminated it with a small UV flashlight, and it glowed good:



Then Nate suggested that the glow-in-the-dark PLA might act as light pipe, which I could use to make another translucent concrete sculpture.  Even if that media did not act as light pipe, I might embed pieces of the glow-in-the-dark PLA in the translucent concrete mix that I imported from Mexico, to make another sculpture.  Then I might use a powerful UV flashlight to reveal both visible and  hidden patterns in the concrete sculpture.

If it glows, this UV light will fluoresce it.  You can't really see it, but the flashlight is painted in glow-in-the dark paint. It instantly recharges glow in the dark items.

I don't even know how can it?
