Rose Lithophane lamp by pp3dpNL 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.

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.

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

The base is 1 mm, the rose plus base about 3 mm.
