Introduction: Lampe - Fully 3D Printed Designer Lamp

About: I have a cat.

Lampe is a fully 3D printed and customizable lamp.

The minimal design doesn't need support material to be printed and it can be combined with exotic materials to get a premium result. The models were 3D printed with Colorfabb Woodfill (body) and White nGen (lamp screen).

There are two main versions of Lampe: regular version (centered light bulb and lamp screen connector) and minimal version (light bulb on the top part and no lamp screen). Also, there are three lamp screen designs (vertical, horizontal and square) which can be shortened or enlarged to get different shapes and lamp sizes.

Step 1: Parts and Printing Instructions

The Lampe Collection is fully 3D printed, no screws or glue are needed during the assembly process, and it can be printed in nearly any printer (120x120x120 printing surface, heated bed not necessary).

IMPORTANT: I strongly recommend to use E14 LED light bulbs, in order to avoid any heat or size problem. It's really important for you to check if the light bulb gets warm, as it may deform the lamp (it always depends if you use PLA, ABS or any other material). For the pictures I used the vertical lamp screen combined with a colour changing LED light bulb with remote controller (available online for less than 8€). I'm not responsible for any damage or compatibility issue.

For the pictures I used an experimental crystal lamp screen combined with a colour changing LED light bulb with remote controller (available online for less than 8€). The lamp body and connector can be printed with thick walls and no infill. The lamp screens need to be printed without bottom or top walls, 0% infill and with one perimeter (0.4mm wall, 0.1 layer height and the lowest printing temperature possible to avoid combing). The lamp screen connects to the screen frame applying some pressure, no glue or screws are needed.

I hope you enjoy the design and feel free to improve it.

    Hello,

    Great lamp! Can't wait to make it!

    However, I have just paid for the premium account because I thought that it would then allow me to access the actual stl. 3D printer ready files. I didn't realise I was paying $49.95 just to read the same content in a pdf file :-(

    Could you possibly send me the 3D printer ready files? Thank you so much!

    looks really nice, good desk model idea. congrats

    I would love to print this, but I don't see links to the printable files. Where might those be?

    I can see it (just at the beginning of the instructable). In case you can't see it, here's the download link:

    Very nice design and good real world example of 3D printer.

    However please be aware of the melting and starting fire from heat. I'm not sure what material to choose to best overcome this issue, who have experienced please share.

    Thanks! I recommend using a LED lamps we've done some tests with it and it doesn't get hot enough to melt or deform anything (we use materials based on PLA).

    I just updated the instructable with some pictures of it working. Sorry for the delay!

    Any pictures with the light on? Curious how much the light is diffused.
