Tell us about yourself!
The panels are printed in two colors. I printed the base in white, paused the printer when it arrived at the pattern and replaced the filament with black color.
I just added a modification to the lamp that should allow you to use standard E14/E27 lightbulbs.
Now available, extra panels. Mix different ones and create your custom shoji lamp or use the blank panel for a cleaner look or even better, to create your customized panel.
Thanks, but bear in mind that the pictures in the intro, only the first two and the last three were made by me, the other were the inspiration for this build. I like the look of the panels you have on your Japanese Lamp From Recycled Materials, I will probably add that style to a pack of extra panels I'm planning on making for this lamp.
Thanks.I completely forgot to add dimensions for the final build. The final build volume is around 190mm x190mm x 300mm.As for the A19 bulb, if bottom cover is modified do fit a A19 lamp holder them there's enough space to fit an A19 bulb, I will see what I can do. Initially, I was planning on using E14 bulbs on this build, but the low profile of the G9 lamp holder won me over.

I don't have photos or videos showing the cutter working and I already gave it away, but I did test it and seemed to work well. The only issues that I had were with the bottles, weird shaped ones (I'm looking at you Coca-Cola) were a pain to cut, you need to make the sides of those flat by passing them over a heat-source carefully until the sides are as flat as possbile, and finaly low quality bottles tend to have visible seams and whenever one of those got to the blade, the filament stripe almost always broke away.
I didn't thought of that, cool, off to buy a external HD and to transform it into to a real holocron :D.

Thanks for the comments. I'm not the ideal person to ask about photography, but making bokeh photography should be possible with most lenses, but looking at the physics it will probably depend on the bokeh shape and how much light it lets through. I think that with certain lens sizes you will probably have to make the center shape smaller or larger, unfortunately I don't have enough experience to really help with that.For anyone wanting to have one of these kits but don't have a 3D printer, take a look at your nearest Library or maker space to see if they have a 3D printer that is usable by the public. In alternative you can checkout 3DHubs, it shouldn't' be too expensive ordering a print.
