So a relative of mine knocked over hers, rather expensive, Bourgie Kartell designlamp. Causing the foot of the lamp to break in 3 peaces.
After examining the break I noticed that only a removable plastic connector piece at the bottom was broken. Glueing the piece did not help, because on reassemble the piece would just break again due to the tension.
Therefore I made a 3d model of the piece. I'll print the model in a fablab next week and hope to fix the lamp with the replacement piece!
I figured it couldn't hurt to upload the model to thingiverse. Who knows someone else here broke theirs Bourgie lamp :)
I printed the part in a local fablab on a UP! Mini. The part printed very nice. unfortunately the part did not fit exactly in the lamp. The arch were the 3 outside cilinders connect to the center cilinder was hard to copy exactly, so this was a bitbto think. But with a litlle sanding the part fitted nicely resulting in 1 fixed lamp!
I will try and edit the model so the part fits directly from print.
I uploaded a version 2 of the connector. This part should fit directly without sanding.
Print the part and use it to reassemble the lamp.
