3D print + LED = awesomeness

Here I'll show you how to make a little LED lamp from any 3D print you like
This is the easiest way I could think of and it requires just a LED and a button cell battery

The result is a mood light which you can turn on/off by turning, which allows for the LED to make contact with the battery

Step 1: What You'll Need

- 3D printer or access to one
- Transparant filament, I use natural PETG
- 1 button cell battery3v CR2032
- 1 standard 5mm LED, get the bright ones
- Meshmixer software if you want to turn your own print into a LED lamp

<p>Is it normal that the Battery and the LED get warm ?</p>
Either you are using a LED that needs less voltage then the battery provides like yellow/red/orange LEDs (+-1.8V) Or you are using a battery that provides more than 3V? You could solve it by adding a resistor.<br> <br> If you want to read more about LEDs: https://www.instructables.com/id/LEDs-for-Beginners/
<p>Those look really neat!</p>
