Simple ‘3D Printed Lamp Shade’ Looks Great #3DThursday #3DPrinting
I love the way the light shines through it and how the geometric shapes create interesting light and dark areas. I thought these vases might make a neat lamp so I decided as a test to make the blue PLA vase into a lamp to see how it would look.
I had a couple of these IKEA lamp sockets laying around. They looked perfect for this.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
