I had a hard time finding a night light sized lithophane lantern. I wanted to make one for my Mom's Birthday.. so I made my own. This is my first CAD project, so go easy on me :)
This will hold a total of 4 lithophanes. The one in back is kind of pointless I guess since it just faces the wall, but you could always swap them out if you get bored of one or the other.
This is designed to attach to the base from a scentsy I had lying around. I've included a picture of it. I assume they are all mostly the same.
You'll want to use a really low wattage bulb, preferable LED if you don't want to melt your print to death. Don't use the one that came with the scentsy.
I used THIS
I do plan to make another base compatible with a popular night light base from Amazon so you will not have to hunt down this specific lighting fixture. I'll update once I have done that.
I created the lithophanes using 3DPRocks
The settings are included in images.
Be sure to use the photoshop template in the files so that your image is the correct aspect ratio to fit in the lantern. (W: 311px H: 370px)
.25mm for lantern .1mm for lithophanes
15% for lantern 100% for lithophanes
I used Hatchbox Wood PLA, sanded and stained, but you could use whatever color you want.
You may need to sand down the thickness of the top, bottom, and sides of your lithophanes so that they fit, depending on your tolerances. I didn't want them too loose so they are nice and secure.
