That really cool $4,100 lamp shade that turns your room into a spooky forest that was flying around the internet while back seemed really cool. But I could never find any plans to build it! I decided to take a first stab at this. I'm fairly new to 3D printing so I'm uploading this more to get feedback from folks on how to potentially print this thing! It's a whopper in terms of complexity and I can't seem to think of a good approach without having a dual-extruder machine and using water-soluble filament for supports.
From my research on the idea, when lighting, this needs to have the smallest, but brightest, bulb you can find. The larger the light source the fuzzier the shadows will be on the walls. Something like a halogen would probably be a good bet.
