Snap Together Mini-lamp: Slicable and LED Power by RockstarAlchemist Aug 3, 2012

Description

I had trouble slicing the .stl files from the original, so using a combination of netfabb cloud and basic, I was able to slice in pronterface with Slic3r. I also added LED strip lighting.

Crypto,  sorry I just saw your request.  I've uploaded the smaller plates for the arm parts.  I think they'll fit your TOM build surface.  FYI...I used OpenSCAD to import the STL, then used cubes to "difference" out a portion of the plate.  I don't have a full version of netfabb, might have made it easier, otherwise.  Enjoy.
I did it with 100% fill density.  It was overkill on the base, but made for a solid structure.  Definitely, 100% for the rest.
nsunderman, I uploaded the gcode file I used.  Not sure if that will help or not.  I did have less than beautiful bridges in forming the end of the lamp head [closing it off], but since it was on the inside of the lamp shade, it wasn't a big deal and the outside looked great.  Let me know if this helps.

Instructions

Hopefully, these files will slicer better. I was using Pronterface + Sli3r + Printrbot LC+

LED strip lighting was HitLights 12V DC white.

Otherwise, follow instructions on makerbot's original.
when I use slic3r it does not bridge the top of the lamp instead it tries to make three perimeters around the top hole and then infill. What am I doing wrong

Dood! The base finally printed. I've had real issues with the other models. Thanks for uploading these.
Don't suppose you could break the ArmsPartsSnap file into a couple of pieces to fit on my tiny TOM?

Is there a recommended Fill Density for this print?

SWEET!! another printrbot fan! Thanks for the fixed version. :-D
You guys are welcome and I'm glad you found it helpful.
This is the first version that seems to slice right. Printing now and thanks!
thank you for the slic3r friendly version
