check out bits and bobs picture
THINGS YOU WILL NEED
Sharp snap knife
100m Glow in the dark filament
STEP 2 (pic 2 & 2.1)
Cleaning, Gluing & Jigging !!!
OK if your one with your 3D printer you may find the next step will be easier for you than it was for me.
Since the cold weathers has come in, me and my printer haven't been seen eye to eye !!!!
1.With your knife clean all edges make sure there is no blobs on the corners
2.Apply superglue along one of the long edges ( NOT THE BOTTOM EDGE )
3.grab one more segment and place in the Jig holding the glued side to the new segment (HOLD UNTIL DRY)
4.Keep adding segments to the Jig until the shape is made
5.Rinse and repeat until you have 11 sections like you seen in the pic
STEP 3 (PIC 3)
Setting up & more GLUING !!!
1.SO place 5 of your newly made segments together and apply glue wait for 10 minutes then apply more !!!
2.Repeat again so you have 2 large halves
3.interlock the 2 large halves together and apply more glue leave to dry for 15 minutes
STEP 4 (PIC 4)
Last segment & sealing up
1.Add you last segment to the top of the star then glue in place (wait for 5 minutes)
2.your star might have gaps where the segments have joined so apply a thin amount of clear silicone. i would advise you ask for help to hold the star as its very light in weight. depending on you brand of silicone leave to dry for a minimum of 10 hrs
STEP 5 (PIC 5)
PRINTING FIXTURES. Adding fixture !!
LAST STEP !!
1.Loose fit block onto light fixture as seen in pic
2.Apply glue to blocks, sick them to the top as shown in the pic
once dry the light fixture should pivot back and forth this will allow easy access to the bulb.
3.Fit around rose of the light bulb and your done
hope you guys enjoyed this this was real fun to make. My son loves the light he now calls it "the magic light"
