I wanted to make some halloween bits for my son using glow in the dark PLA and some battery tea lights I got of ebay.


I have no connection to this seller, I got mine from here and they all worked fine and arrived in good time YMMV.

This has been resized from Makies http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:167043

I rescaled the pumpkin and lid so it was large enough to take the candle, I also added a recess inside to hold the candle and removed makies name from the base (sorry).

my candles we 37mm diameter and 40mm heigh with flame and they flicker which gives a great effect with out the problem of a real flame.


I printed the body at 0.4 layer height at 30% fill and raft on my reprappro mono mendel with frog tape on the bed.
bed was at 65 deg and the nozzle was 220 deg for the glow in the dark PLA, this is hotter than I normally use for PLA but the glow in the dark seems to print better when hotter.
I printed the lid at 0.3 layer height and 40% fill and used a fan when printing the stork.

I want to try this print - i assume Supports would be needed? for the Eyes and mouth?


Yes I printed it with support, If you look through all the pictures the second to last one shows it on the print bed before the support has been removed.
good luck with your print and please post your make with some pictures when its done.

Hi we are a 3D Printer reseller and we were wondering if we could use your jack o lantern model as a free download on our website for Halloween? Thank you.

HI, I have no problem with you using it as long as its not for sale, this model is not my work as I have only remixed it from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:167043 so probably best to check with them as well.
thanks for your interested in this thing and good luck with the web site

Thats Great.

Thank you

I made time lapse video of the print. 200% scale, .12mm layer height.

How many mm high does the stem start? I might be able to use a z-stop to change filament to another colour!

Hi. the stem is recessed slightly in the top but after 7.3mm it is stem only.
might be easier to paint the stem after but if you do print it in two colours please mark as made and upload some pics.
