Mike-vom-Mars shares:

Glowing (self-luminous), decorative light bulb.

To be printed with self-luminous (glowing) PLA. Two versions: Self-standing or hanging light bulb.


Print with self-luminous (glowing) PLA.
Print it upright (as provided in the .stl file)
Wall thickness: 0.8mm or more
No supports
No infill
Use raft for best adhesion

Print with silver PLA (or use chrome effect spray paint afterwards)
Print the normal socket for a self-standing bulb

Use any glue to stick the socket and the bulb together.
Use chrome effect or silver spray for the socket, which gives a nice metallic look.

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!
