We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
A glass piece created by glassblowing Kenny Galusha at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Kenny created this piece as a test of various glassblowing and coloring techniques so that we could test how they react to high-power lighting.
I stuck a high-power (3W) RGB LED into this piece with some really astonishing results: https://vimeo.com/52722322
I also held the RGB LED directly against several of the individual features, each with awesome results:

This piece was scanned using 123D Catch, then processed in Meshmixer and netfabb Studio Basic to make it manifold and 3D printable.
I have included the fully-textured cleaned OBJ mesh exported from 123D Catch, as well as the original 123D Catch project file (.3DP).
Print this thing with full support! I used 0.2mm layer height, 2 shells and 10% infill on a Makerbot Replicator using "Helsinki Blue" ABS filament.
