This design was inspired by my current internship, I work at a packaging design company and interact with corrugate sheets everyday. This instructable will show you how to make a modern hanging lamp without breaking the bank.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
This instructable will require a
Clamp light from lowes
LED Bulbs also available at lowes
To begin unhinge the clamp light from the aluminum dish, just unscrew the clamp holding it all together to reveal a single light fixture
Step 2: Creating the Fushion 360 File
First Open up fashion 360.
Create a sketch on the bottom plane, draw a circle with a radius of 3.8
Copy the sketch on the image above and use the circular pattern
Step 3: Extrude
Extrude the sketch and edit form
Once you edit from go to modify and select an edge
Manipulate the edge until you see fit or matches the design
After your design is where you want it, thicken to 0.20
Step 4: Cut a Hole for the Light Fixture
Construct an offset plane from the bottom till it is above the model
Sketch a hole on the new offset plane and cut down
Step 5: Create the Supports for the Fixture
Create another offset plane, this time around the top of the model
Extrude up a circle around the hole, offset the sketch around the hole .3 inches
Step 6: Cut Holes for the Switch
Create a sketch at the top of the model, make a square that is .3 x .3 and cut
Make sure to fillet all sharp edges after
Step 7: Export Your File As a STL and Bring Into Cura
Make sure your file prints upright, also make sure that adhesion and supports are checked on and also 20% infill
Step 8: Print
Print your file, I like to keep my extruder at 235 and my bed at 65 for PLA
Step 9: Sand and Prepare
After your file is printed do a light sanding with 180 grit and move up to 250 grit sandpaper
Step 10: Use 2 Part Epoxy to Adhere Lighting Fixture to Print
Mix up the 2 part epoxy and apply around the rim of the fixture
then push fixture into the print and set down on its side to dry
allow proper drying time also only use in a well ventilated area
Step 11: Screw in Your Bulb and Enjoy!
