Most people buy a lamp, extraordinary people design them.
Perhaps you have never designed a lamp before, but you are experienced in using 3D modeling software like Rhino, 3D Studio Max, SketchUp or Blender. We will help you to turn your idea into a one-of-a-kind table lamp.

Let’s get you on the right track.

Step 1: Download table lamp kit

Get started by downloading the table lamp kit for the following 3D modeling programs:

<p>Very nice design. I would very much prefer to use an LED bulb as a light source. You can make it as bright as you want without the worry about softening the plastic shade since the LED bulb would not even come close to producing the amount of heat than a filament bulb. Also with the LED bulb you can tighten up the clearance around the bulb if you wish.</p>
