Step 1: 3D Model and Slicer
Τhe basic 3d model of the lamp was made in Fusion 360. The tool I use to turn my 3D model into appealing artifacts is the Slicer for Autodesk Fusion 360. I was slice and convert the 3D model of the lamp into 2D patterns that now I can cut out.
Bellow, I have the SVG files ready for Laser Cutting and also a PDF file with the 2D patterns that you can cut out of any flat material!
Step 2: Put Together - Assembly
I use white glue to stick cardboard layers the one with the other, it's a simple process!
Step 3: Completed
The final result after all layers have been glued.
Step 4: Light Up
In the bottom piece, I haved glue LED lights so all that you have to do to light up is to connect your lamp with the battery or to a power source. I think it turns out to something very beautiful and unique!
