This family of shapes is one of my older pet projects.
Over the years I designed and printed many shapes, sizes, thicknesses, slopes and variations.
I usually mount the Cree-LEDS on an aluminum disc which is spray painted black.

Eno, Adam, Eve and Ando!

Tested in ABS and PLA, I recommend natural or transparent.
Full details on this power-LED project will follow.
For now you can print and use with small led-candles :-)
