Description

A lampshade I made for my IKEA lamp. Works really good and it scatters the light pleasently.

2 STL files. First one is the entire lampshade and it has to be printed without top. The second file is the top part with a hole in it so it can be fitted to a lamp. The lamp you want to fit for this lampshade cant be bigger than around 5,6 cm wide since the hole in the lampshade isnt bigger.

Thanks! I did not print with supports so I wouldnt say it requires it. Yes mine is made from white PLA and it is printed with only 1 layer in wall thickness. I think "natural" colour could work too, I have tried with transparent PLA too but I think it emits too much light and not really shading anything. But perhaps with several layers transparent PLA could work.

Nice design, thanks for sharing. A few questions. Would this need to be printed with supports? Is yours made of PLA? I am wondering if the light would penetrate my white PLA or if I should use the "natural" colour?
