This night lamp was designed and build as a new year present. The idea came from a fancy globe night lamps with a wake up function and quickly got out of control.
The design was done in blender and tinkercad. It is 3d printed with a zortrax m200 printer. For the electronics it contains a teensy LC, a steel button as a capacitif touch button and an infrared remote.
A video of the light at work: https://youtu.be/c7YyH6Le0BA
In the video you can see the different functions, out the frame I'm pushing the buttons on the remote.
It has 3 basic functions:
- one color mode
- two color mode, the text has a different color
- special programs (hue color loop, color random, dual color circle, ...)
The bottom is higher then necessary (about 2mm) I dremel the top part width an angle of 45 degree and did the same width the bottom part so that they fit very nicely, Do it in small steps for the best results. I did already printed the top before I thought of that, maybe someone wants to rework the parts.
The design and the code are opensource so you can build it yourself.
The code and build instructions:
The transparant parts are printed width maximum infill. The others parts have medium infill
