A lampshade / tealight cover.

It’s made of separate pentagons, you need to print 11 of them (If you want to keep just the bottom open. When using with tealights, it may be a good idea to keep the top open also.) and glue them together.

I also added a filled out single layer version that’s more suitable for usable lighting (good with white filament). There are parts for the bottom and for the base, but they are based on my specific bulb holder, so they probably won’t be compatible with anything else 🙂

If you like the design and think it’s worth a dollar or two, a tip would be greatly appreciated. It would help me design more stuff and post it here.

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!
