Life-size model of Lumiere. Holds two tea candles in his "hands". Modeled from scratch using Blender.

UPDATE 10/6/15: Added head as two separate files.

Note: His hands are not identical. If one hand seems to sit higher on its arm, then try swapping with the other hand.

Yeah, why not hollowing the head so we can place a candle there too? :)

Excellent model but can I just ask why the arms are different sizes?

Thank you. It was one of my very first creations in Blender. I'm glad you like it!

superbe, merci de votre travail :)

Dommage que dans la tète on ne peu pas mettre de bougie. ;)

beautiful, thank you for your work :)

Too bad in the head is not put little candle. ;)

Wonder full modeling. I am printing one right now. I do have one suggestion. Would it be possible to separate the two heads to separate files as well.

Just wondering, is it possible for the PLA to warp from the lit candles or should it be fine. I want to be sure before I light the candles for dinner.

I have not had any problems burning tea candles in my PLA version (the candles with metal around them to keep the wax contained).
If for some reason the flame actually touches the plastic, it could melt, though.

i have a question for the editor. can you upload the body in 2 seperate .stl files it doesn't fit on my robo

I just added "Lumiere_body_left.stl" and "Lumiere_body_right.stl".

Do these work for you?

great work! I like the alignments discs, nice idea.

...Just re-read your post. I didn't intend the discs to have anything to do with assembly, they're just there to reduce warping. I cut them off when it's done printing. Some people call them "ears", I think.

Now that you mention it, some sort of alignment guides might be nice for assembly. I'll look into it.

well, now that they're anti-warping discs, I like them even more.

Thanks. Enjoy.

Here's a question:

Can you post an editable file for this? I need to either print it at half scale, or import the .STLs to break the model up into smaller pieces that fit my printer. Only problem is that importing STLs into SketchUp makes for a very messy object.

I'd also like to hollow out the arms for wiring and make cavities in the hands and head for LEDs, as well as a Arduino-nano-sized control board...

Thanks again for a great model.

Sorry for the delay. ...Forgot to upload he .blend file until just now.

Sure. I'll post the original .blend file. Check back this evening.

Glad you like it.
