Did you stain the litho pieces as well or are they just left alone?

supports / infill % ?

Have you thought about the having the pillars connected to the base in the print file. The screw could still go through the base and into the pillar. Also found that if you print with a 1mm nozzle and 25% grid infill, you can print the base, pillars and feet together and the top separate. This take about 20hrs total to print.

Would you be able to make this housing for a 10cm x 10cm x 3mm? This is exactly what i was looking for to finish my gift for a friend.

Can anyone tell me what is the size of the inner hole?

could you please provide a link for the light bulb socket you used? :(

Looks fantastic! What type and color of filament did you use? Thinking maybe just natural or nylon and then painted or stained.

Thanks! I used Hatchbox Wood PLA, sanded down, and stained with a mahogany stain.

Thanks for the info. I won't be able to try this for 10 days or so. I had already ordered some MG Chemicals wood PLA though, so will definitely try this out when I get the chance.

Do any of the parts require supports?

I printed the top with supports just to be safe. Otherwise, I used a brim for the pillars since they are tall and thing to improve adhesion. The feet and the base I just used a skirt on.

Looks like they won't. Depending on how well your machine bridges you may need to flip the top 180 degrees
