3D Printed Mario Themed Desk Lamp


John Martin shared on Thingiverse:

Mario Themed Desk Lamp

This is a project based on a number of similar lamps I’ve seen on the internet. Some were made of cast iron, some with ABS plumbing pipes. Mine is completely 3D printed.

I used a free model of Mario called Mario (2) Trophy that I got from models-resources.com/download 3794. It was submitted by thegameexplorer and is from the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I had to do a bit of work on the .obj file before I could use it because it was open mesh. I wanted to modify it (to put the bead chain hanger on it). I also had to scale it up quite a bit because it was very small.

I wanted to use the Mario question block lampshade by leethegeek – thing 954281, but it was too big and scaling it left the sides too thin. I had to recreate it from scratch. Wanted to give credit though.

I also used Piranha pencil topper by BrandonW6 – thing 39443. All I added here was a stem for it.

And lastly, I used rtideas thing 744570 strain relief (slightly scaled up to accomodate my power cord) to attach the cord to the deck.

All the rest I designed myself.


Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
