Rose Lithophane Lamp by 3DWP Apr 17, 2013


I made a lithophane of a rose and in Sketchup I put four of them together to form a lithophane lamp. I put in an E14 fitting and a plug. The red one in the picture is really bright (maybe a little too bright for the camera) and the black one probably won't allow light to pass through so I think white is the best to print.

I printed the original file on our Inspire D290 and had no problems although there are some errors in the STL model. So I tried to fix it and reduced the triangles a bit, this is the file with ''Fix'' at the end.

<p>Wow, way clever! Awesome, dude.</p>

<p>I used a 15 W small light bulb and 220V (small E14 fitting). Don't have to use LED here because I don't think on normal scale the lamp will get too hot. I guess a tealight would work but I would only use LED lights.</p>

<p>How did you get the lithopane file into sketchup?</p>

<p>great idea will try one<br> with family pics</p>

<p>nice work!! how thick is the bit the light passes through??</p>

<p>Thanks, it was a lot of work.. I'm relatively new to Sketchup. </p>

<p>The base is 1 mm, the rose plus base about 3 mm.</p>

<p>Ok, thanks, my new UP printer turns up in a day or two...can't wait to get into this stuff!!</p>

<p>Congratulations, it's a wonderful 3D printer. This model is too big as it is, but I've printed it on my Up by scaling down untill it fitted (about 75 %). And because of the height of this model I recommend to print the calibration model of the Up first, but you''ll get to that when it's needed.</p>
