I've also been testing Taulman 618 nylon filament. Google it and buy some if you haven't already. It's really fun stuff with properties that will greatly expand your printing capabilities.
Anyway, beyond it's mechanical properties, I've noticed that the nylon does really cool things with light. Both of the pieces pictured were printed one perimeter thick and they just glow when lit, pics don't do justice. The big one (V4) had some kind of issue that caused a big dent when it was about 80% done printing. Should be a smoother profile than that.

Loving all your lamp designs. I imagine your home must be exceedingly bright by now :P
And thanks for the info on the Taulman Nylon, sounds like a great material.
Nice! Â The only thing I don't like about it is it really likes to warp. Â I kinda gave up on heated masking tape and just print on a PCB at about 60 degrees. Â Leaves texture on the bottom, but it's better than failed prints. Â You can pick a blank 6"x8" PCB up at Radio Shack for a few bucks.
