Step 1: What You Will Need
IKEA suspension kit : 5$
60w incandescent Light bulb or fluocompact
A 3D printer with minimum a 5.5 inch x 5.5 inch printing table
I work with an UP! PP3DP and I think it Does a WONDERFUL job for only 1 700$
Step 2: Choose a Model
I already printed 5 different models, all with the same shape, but different patterns.
Step 3: WIRES
This one is my favourite, but unfortunatly... the file is too big. You can find it on Thingiverse : http://www.thingiverse.com/samuel
Step 4: DIAMONDS
Step 5: DOTS
Step 6: STRIPES
Step 7: SQUARES
Some models may cause problems. The square lamps shade had some problems printing and skipped a few layers. Instead of trowing it away, I decided to re_glue the unfinished parts into an other design. See picture below.
Step 8: Spiral
This one was never produced because of its complexity. If you want to try... go ahead!
Step 9: ROOTS
Still working on that one.
