Electromaker Kits has recently launched!..with one simple objective:
To get people excited about 3D printing and DIY electronics by providing easy to follow video tutorials.
To celebrate the launch we are asking the community to customise one of Electromaker’s popular 3D printable projects: The DIY Mood Lamp.Submit your design
The DIY Mood Lamp
The DIY Mood Lamp is a beautiful addition to any desk, shelf or table!
It is made up of 5 (support free) 3D printed parts and some simple electronic components.
With interchangeable shades and stems which can be printed in any colour, this is a very personalisable project.
We want YOU to get your creative juices flowing by redesigning two key parts of the lamp - the shade and stem. These parts can be as simple or as crazy as you like, just as long as they adhere to the dimensions listed in the designer resorces section of this page.
The top three submissions will also feature on the Electromaker.io website and become available to anyone that wishes to build the project in the future.
Good Luck! If after you have printed your lamp and you wish to make it fully functional, you can purchase your DIY Electronics kit here.
We have got three great prizes from AnyCubic for the top three submissions:
Please be creative with your designs however parts must follow these dimensions:
- Height: 166mm
- Bottom diameter: 102mm
- Top diameter: 47mm
- Inside radius (to fit LED holder): 42mm
