Introduction: Lamp Shade
I saw this lamp on http://fablab.waag.org/project/lamp-birch.
It had no files attached and no setting for the laser cutter.
I remade the lamp birch in illustrator and gave it my personal touch
Step 1: Materials and Settings
Materials I used:
Tools I used:
Universal laser cutter
Settings fot laser cutter:
Choose the right wood
Rest of the settings remain the same (see picture)
The blue print is made in illustrator and is also attached.
The vector lines are now in RGB red (255-0-0) and the line thickness is 0.0254
Step 2: Assemble
When the laser cutter was finished I had to assemble the lamp shade.
First problem I had was the long parts of the shade were fitting exactly in the holes but fell out every time. So I had to glue them to make sure they didn't fall out.
Step 3: Assemble More
keep going until all holes are filled.
Step 4: Finish
Put the shade on a lamp and voilla!
Step 5: Look at That!
the awful smell will stay a long time! :(
Step 7: Blue Print
Here the blue print to use!
