Summary

Modio has given us a wonderful set of modular bits to work with - with hooks, balls and holes there are infinite combinations for creative constructions. Browsing the mail-order from another maker of modular merchandise I discovered the HEMMA lamp cord and the Modio Lamp was born!

Steps to make your Modio Lamp:

  • Purchase a HEMMA lamp cord
  • Print the Modio-Lamp Connector bit
  • Download Modio on your device & print some bits
  • Assemble a lamp from your wildest imagination!
  • Optional print some customizable Modio-Windows to create a lamp shade

Modio Window Panel

Most of the Modio bits have these great little holes in them, the customizable window prints with a peg that fits perfectly in them. Using the customizable window panel you can create an array of different sized lamp shade bits to help disperse the light from your lamp.

Instructions

The lamp featured in the photos uses:

  • 1 x Modio-Lamp connector bit
  • 8 x Modio-Window.stl
  • 8 x Modio-torsos.stl
  • 8 x Modio-clamptoclamp.stl
  • 16 x Modio-balltoclamp.stl

Modio-clamptoclamp.stl is not scaled correctly. I spent 2 days printing this and would really like to finish. Please re-size this particular file so this is a working model. Thanks!

Just uploaded a version with corrected scaling -- can't wait to see your finished lamp! Also if you have an iOS device download modio and print some of their other parts to truly customize your version. Good luck!

I am trying to print this project out. It appears the scale is off in the Modio-clamptoclamp.stl part.

Can you advise?

Thanks

BTW great Idea.

The thingiverse description's use Markdown as their mark up language (irony not intended). You can learn all about it here: http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax

i'm unable to slice the lamp-connector in cura. simply won't start slicing.

Did this problem sort itself out? I just sliced it with my version of Cura (Version 14.07) without any issues.

Great design, surprised nobody has "made one" and uploaded it yet. I will make one and upload it when I order that part :P

Thank you, can't wait to see yours!

Congrats!
Very cool!

Thank you! It was a lot of fun

Cool! Combine that with lithopane panels and it would be even cooler!

Great thinking! This could get real jazzy with some lithopanes

Such a clever use of the app!

Thanks Jason!
