Hi everybody! I'm back with an easy and good looking project!
In case you lived outside this planet during the past few years, "Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players worked together to create wonderful, imaginative things" says the official page. In particular, the torch prevents monsters to spawn around you all the time. So, since my house is in a high spawned area, I decided to craft a torch!
First of all, you need the model, and you can get it from Thingiverse at this page. It is pretty easy to print and the angle is such that allows you to print without support (thanks!). As you may notice, I modified the original model by removing most of the base. If you are interested in my "remix", just ask.
You will also need several tones of brown. You can just make them by mixing brown, white and black. Easy stuff. Remember, you need acrylic paint! Other kinds of paint just don't stick on typical 3D printing plastics (ABS, PLA).
Last but not least, you need four or more flickering LEDs (the guy who designed the model uses eight LEDs). I just took them out of those little flickering candles you use when you want to be romantic without setting on fire your house.
