Step 1: Parts to Print

Find all parts you need on Thingiverse.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3511731

All parts are printed in PLA. The outer coil should be printed as vase-mode. The only part which needs support is the bottom. Print it in the orientation it is saved as.

Print a case of your desire

1x bottom (needs support)

1x bottom cover

1x inner coil

1x outer coil

1x top (print your preferred part)

1x base_polypanel (for polypanels from MakeAnything)

1x top_polypanel (for polypanels from MakeAnything)

Step 2: Parts You Need (BOM)

Here is the list with all necessary parts for the LED lamp

1x LED strip (I recommend at least 2m)

1x Power Switch

1x Power Connector (optional if you don't want to power via USB)

1x Power Supply (optional if you don't want to power via USB)

6x M4 x 12mm screws

4x M3 x 6mm screws

Step 3: Base

Attach the power switch and the power plug to the bottom plate (If you want to power the lamp with a power supply). Otherwise you don't need them.

Use two M4 x 12mm flat head screws to mount the inner coil to the base plate.

Step 4: Electronic (LED)

As I wanted to power the lamp with a power supply, I unsoldered the USB cable and soldered the LED receiver to the power connector. Hereby I have a clean body.

Step 5: Done

Use the outer coil as a diffuser for the LEDs and put the top on you prefer.

You can secure the top with four M3 x 6mm screws.

Here you find the parts for the polypanel top

Question 5 months ago on Introduction

I can't get the outer coil to slice the whole image in Cura 4.4.1. It only slices the base. Any tips?

Hi,

I use PrusaSlicer and there you have the option "Detect thin walls". Maybe you have something similar in Cura.
