The Classic Lampshade

Lighten up your space with our classic and clean design, with the diamond pattern. Use energy-saving light bulbs :)

Led Hexagonal Panels

I print these with no infill no support or bed adhesion. They take about 2.5 hours for the body and 1.5 hours for the lids.

There are no clips or anything special with them. The lids lock in place. there is a small lip for them to sit on when locked in.

I have had to sand a few corner on the lids to get them to lock in right but that is just from my printer making them to rounded.

To hold them together I used a few drops of super glue and some hot glue.
the led are just RGBIC strips. These were ran after the glue set. I snaked them in from a low point to have the cord come out there and ran them all along the inside before going back and sticking them in permanently. Hot glue was used in some places to help keep them in place also

To mount them I used two screws and just set them on it. since there is no back to these your free to put screws or nails where you want them as long as it holds it. I did leave the screws stick out far enough that the strip helps stop it from sliding off if it gets bumped

Custom Section

I tried to print these in a gold filament I have but that let the light through and I didnt like it but that is up to you. I am going to be printing more for another kid but this time I am going to try to print the body in red and see how it works out. The face being white works best I think.
but who knows maybe you only want one or two of these to put fairy lights in and print the lid with a color.

Artichoke Lamp Shade

Inspired by the geometry of an artichoke and Louis Poulsen's great lighting studies and diagrams. This beautiful lamp shade is perfect for the home or business. You can use any standard hanging light cord and a low temp bulb (such as a cfl bulb.) We purchased a standard lamp base with a 12 ft cord from amazon and it screws in the top hole with no issues.

40% infill, high cooling, slow speed. May be tricky on some printers so you may need support for some of the lower fins.

The model was created in 3ds Max 2011 but due to the inch/mm unit issues the model is scaled up by 2540%.

The file was made in 3ds Max 2011. We started with two sets of fins offset by 30 degrees. These fins were designed to hide the light source while allowing for reflected light. The profiles were also created to allow for printing on an FFF printer.

After several passes at the perfect shape, the entire model was arrayed radially to create the full lamp shade. We finished by using a boolean union to make it manifold.

Cellular Lamp

A big cellular thing. Use this as a lampshade for an LED light or as a sculpture.

Many people have printed the bracelets I uploaded so I decided to give you something bigger.

Here's the model on Cell Cycle:


I've uploaded a new version (cellularThing_optimizedForMakerbot.stl) that is optimized for a MakerBot Replicator. The bottom of the model is sliced off to make it completely flat, the thinnest members of the structure have been thickened.
