Description

After seeing the redstone ore from thinkgeek I thought why not print it myselft? So I made some nice models and here you go, your very own printable minecraft ore lamp.

I want to make to make my lamp blue, since its the color of the diamonds, but you can use any color you want. If you use red, it will be exactly like the redstone ore, since they use the same texture pattern. Or maybe try some green for some nice uranium!

Thanks so much, we were thinking of doing this too after seeing the $20 thinkgeek version, you've saved us a bunch of the work. I think we are going to make a color change-able version with an RGB led and some pots.
Good idea. I think I will make a inner blue hollow cube
Thanks, but my job gives me a copy of unigraphics. Have been working with it for over 15 years now, so really don't want to learn a different package and it does pretty much everything.

Instructions

Print out the parts. Some you need to print more than once, you see the number in the filename.
I included a led holder, but if you just want the cube you can skip that one, or if you want to use your own led positioning system :D

All the walls (front, back, top, bottom, sides..) you should print in one color. The parts with glass in the filename are the ones that should become transparent. I would recommend to use transparent filament for those.

The parts have a slight chamfer in the holes, to make the assembly easier. For orientation during assembly, the holes should become narrower towards the outside.

I would recommend to use hotglue to glue the parts together.

This is awesome. My sons birthday is coming up and he wants a minecraft party. I am going to print several of these for decorations. Then each kid can have one too. You could just use a colored cellophane and apply that to the inside walls and top. I have several different color LEDs on hand so I am just going to put red, blue and white in them. I have 1W in all these colors, and one in the center/bottom would suffice to light the entire thing. I also have battery packs that hold 2 AA batteries with an on off switch I am going to mount in the bottom.
On question though. Do you have another format available so I can alter the bottom a bit to mount my LED and battery holder? I am looking for maybe IGES, STEP, DXF, ect... I have no way of opening the blend file.
Thanks
Hi, thank you very much! This is what we share our designs for!
Unfortunately Blender is not using any sort of cad drawing. It is just modifying the individual vertices of the mesh. Kind of like microsoft paint compared to photoshop.. So I dont have a different file type to give to you. (btw: Blender is a great free opensource software! It wont really help you with this project, but I can really recommend it for animations and 3d modeling.)

This would be a good dual extrusion print for Ultimachine silver/translucent blue PLA. You could probably also make a separate plate to plug into the holes.
