I can't seem to get the actual measurements in solidworks... Is it scaled to a standard light bulb?

Can we get some more close up shots of the assembled lamp? I can't figure out where half the pieces go. Also, none of the holes fit an m3 screw. Printing with a smaller filament flow multiplier might be necessary.

You have to tell me where you got the ball. :P

This doesn't appear to be very printer friendly. A number of the parts require manual rotation and possibly support. What kind of printer was this printed on?

I printed this using an Objet printer and an UP PP3DP printer, but honestly it should be no different for a Maker Bot. Just use your printer's "Automatic Placement" setting to get the required rotation for printing.

Good advice! Thanks. However not all host software has auto placement options. I have uploaded a derivative that contains parts ready for printing. :)

Due to popular demand, I have decided to include the .STL file for the light bulb. Enjoy!

Oh, this is so on my build list now. Hopefully I'll get it to print, I don't see anything too horribly challenging (but now that I said that, I'll be borked).

Great work sir! There is something about it that is cute at any scale, I've been to PIXAR and saw the enormous one out front, about 25Ft high. Still cute.

Will try a PLA bulb if you upload the file.

You've BEEN to PIXAR? I am insanely jealous.

Just plain awesome !

Oh this is OUTSTANDING. Can't wait to see the MakerBot Animators out there in the world tackle this. Heck, I have Dragonframe Stop Motion... gotta get printing.

Natural PLA is very nearly clear. And I've gotten good light through even ABS if I print it only one perimeter. You should include the bulb anyway, as it doesn't have to "light" to be awesome.

Well done.

Thanks! And once I find my USB drive, I will definitely include the lightbulb

Very cute! Now time for some stop motion animation?

Haha, indeed! Perhaps I'll create some kind of rigging system to simulate his "hopping".
