Desktop lamp with my face on it! The face was generated using facegen with their automatic face modeler ( www.facegen.com ). Unfortunately, the license for the feature is pretty steep ($300). In full disclosure, it doesn't quite look like me.. but I'm also new to the tool.
Model was printed on an up! printer ( pp3dp.com )
My intent is for this product to be Open Hardware, under the TAPR OHL: tapr.org/TAPR_Open_Hardware_License_v1.0.txt
Up! 3D printer, or equivalent
support removal hand tools
Bill of Materials:
(1) head, printed
(1) base, printed
(1) push button
(1) AAAx4 battery holder
(4) AAA battery
(1-4) LEDs [with resistors if necessary]
(1+) extra length of wire
- Print head and base. For the head, I suggest a neck-down orientation, even though support removal might be harder. A little roughness on the inside isn't a big deal, though it might make the light a little splotchy.
- Run the wiring. Unfortunately, there's not yet a real viable solder-free alternative, so this is always the annoying part.. Run the wires from the battery holder upwards through the bottom, one going out toward the button, one coming through the top. Solder the battery wire to one of the button's leads, and an extra wire to the other. Run that extra wire back into the case and upwards out the top as well. Solder these two wires to each end of the LEDs. MAKE SURE that the circuit works.
- Next, affix push button and battery holder to the case. If it doesn't fit snuggly, use super glue or something. Position the LEDs where you want (behind the eyes is cool) and slide on the head! If the head does not fit snuggly, I suggest wrapping the point-of-contact on the base with tape (or scale the model up slightly) to provide a non-permanent snug fit, as opposed to the super glue or something.
