Summary

Filigree double wall tealight holder

A holder for real tealight candle (only for in the house, windless places) and LED tealight candle (for all places).

This filigran voronoi tealight holder is a beautiful decoration and lamp. Through the filigree voronoi-parts, the light casts a beautiful light and shadow effect. The Tealightholder looks so at day and night very nice.

Size: Ca. 11.6 x 8.6 x 11.2 cm

Printed with white PLA. 1-1.5 cm Raft. Supports recommended.

Important!

Please do not use real tea lights, when it is not windless! The material can otherwise deform, melt or possibly burn when the flame comes at the object. Use only LED candles if it wind or the candle is not supervised. On windless places the tealight holder should not be harmed with real candles.

I wanted to love this, but there is a pretty significant design flaw. The entire bottom plate for the candle has almost no support, nothing underneath it, and only 2 points on the edges to try and anchor to.

The printer literally tries to draw a circle and then fill it in mid-air! I watched this layer print. And unfortunately it takes about an hour to get this far and fail. To be clear, this is not a bridging issue, as that is about spanning a gap between two points. The problem here is, there isn't even an edge point to anchor to!

Why not use supports? Because that would be utterly insane (literally impossible) to have to clean all of that up. The entire frame is pretty cool, doesn't need support at all. I suppose if one uses Simplify3d (pricey), one could force supports only under that plate. But why? Why not design support right in under there? It would not affect the overall aesthetics.

Printed on a high quality printer, Prusa i3 MK2S, all the right settings. No settings can make up for printing and anchoring in mid air.

i managed to print one with PLA , however when tries with PLA but glow in Dark filament , it didnt work out, PLA worked fine, also managed to print without support

Cool design - reminds me of a bra

Is so beautiful!

Want to make this LAMP look even cooler ?!? Check out this sweet remote controlled LED light for this 3D print!

Thanks for sharing! Looks very nice! Great work! I made it without problem. I printed with my Anet A8 3D printer. It take around 8-9 hours to print at low speed. I use PLA on 200c no support and no heat on bed just brim option on.This is very unique and hard model to print. Try to keep low speed and Brim option on. Most importantly thing to do is to open this model in Windows 3D builder which will auto fix all errors on model. Then save model in STL file and open it in CURA.

Beautiful, however near impossible to print.

Thanks. I know. Therefore I let them currently print from Shapeways only. They have a different printing technique. And the quality is great! Here are pictures of Shapeways-prints in black and white: http://shpws.me/MEhj.
(Photos with the burning candles showing the own prints. These pictures will be updated later.)

And currently there's a 20% discount for all orders in Strong & Flexible Plastics by the end of the year 2016. With Code: FAREWELL2016

Does anyone know the diameter of the bottom? That is, how big candles does it fit? I really love this design, can't wait to make a couple! :)

Thanks.

Diameter inside is ca. 41.7 mm.

I printed this without support. It had a few minor bridging problems.To be honest it is not visible when a candle is burning. This is beautiful, wonderfull work. Thank you

Tried printing but the support structure is near impossible to remove. do you think i can print this without the structure?

Without support it has various errors.

Very cool tea light holder, whats the print time?

I don't know at the moment. I order them now only over https://www.shapeways.com/product/U277G5CFR/filigree-double-wall-tealight-holder. The quality is much better and it is worth it.

Could this handle the temperature of the candle after it burns for hours and heat up its metal holder?

I had so far no problems that something has melted. And from other people I have not heard anything else.

Alternatively, as described, LED candles can also be used.

I could watch this print all day long. This is beautiful. All I have to decide is how many I want!

This is the most wonderful feedback! Thank you.

What did you use to design this? I would like to make my own variations of this type of organic candle holder.

I think these are beautiful. Great work.
