Funky 3D Printed Anemone Lampshade


3D print this awesome lampshade. via instructables

This is one of the 3D-Printed lamps I developed during my Master Project in sweden and sell in my own shop and studio in bavaria, germany. This version is optimized to be printed on any FDM-Printer, as all parts are easily adjusted with a flat side on the build platform. Furthermore this set is made for use on any available E14 light fixture, other than the version for my shop. Be sure to have a stable foot for the lamp, as the shade will weight about 250g.

Assembly is more or less self explanatory. The 96 round Tentactle-Ends should be superglued in the round holes on the big shade (not to your hands), and all is fixed to a E14-Socket with the connecting part. If the socket does not have a threading with fixing rings, just hotglue the connector to the socket before you set the shade on. Be sure to use a E14 LED Bulb with max 7 Watts and about 55mm diameter, otherwise you might melt the Plastic. Stay healthy!

Step 1: Print the Files! Assemble the parts!
You will need 1 of each files “Konnektor” as well as “10cm Schirm”, and about 100 of “Tentakel”.
I recommend printing the shade corpus with support, opening facing down. This way you will get the smooth surface on the outside. All other parts are made to be printed without support.

After cleaning the prints of strings and blobs, grab your Gel-Superglue and start glueing the Tentacles into the holes. You might check the geometries after printing, just to be sure. The Tentacles should not be too wobbly in the holes.

The connector has holes for attaching it with some M4-bolts and nuts to the rings on threaded E14-sockets. If those are missing, a bit of carefully applied hot-glue works as well. Make sure to use the glue on the inside of the shade, so it does not stay visible once you put the shade on the connector.

Enjoy your Anemonae-Lamp!
