Blossoming Lamp (originally designed by emmett) with few modifications:

  • Adjusted for E14 light bulbs with outer diameter up to 42 mm (use LED bulb only)
  • Bulb can be mounted using threaded holder (26 mm)
  • With removable shades (try printing them in different colors!)
  • With slim stand (with and without window for switch)


This is second version of modified lamp. See the other version (A) - where opening/closing petals works in slightly different way.

For detailed assembly instructions please visit my blog: http://3dwpraktyce.pl/2015/06/blossoming-lamp-assembly-manual.


Print elements without supports. The Stand.stl (with switch window) contains built-in support, which should be removed after printing (see the photos). Lamp-shade-translucent.stl looks great you print the bottom part (8 mm) normally, and the rest as spiral vase. To do this I had to tinker with gcode files.

If you have problems with opening printed Lamp-petals.stl, see the instructions in source thing.

Besides printed parts, you will need the following items:

  • LED light bulb
  • Bulb holder (26 mm external diameter)
  • Power cord

For stand with switch window, you will additionally need:

  • A switch (window is 21x12 mm)
  • 2 connectors matching switch contacts
  • Heat shrink tube

I need help. :( I have the base, shade, and nut printed just fine, but my blossom keeps breaking!!! I tried with and without supports. ABS and PLA. Are there some "recommended" layer heights, speeds, infill, temp, etc? I have a flashforge creator pro printer. Can anyone give any hints? also, if you can't see the photos, basically the petal stems seem super weak and seem to be breaking. This last time, the stem actually "looked" damaged/chewed up a bit. One of my previous attempts had the same issue as well as the tips of the petals snapped off too.

Edit: the white in my pictures is the supports. I used the right extruder for those and made them in a different color to see if i could figure out what the heck i am doing wrong.

Is there any chance of still having this work at 90% scale? Or maybe even 93% scale? The print is just slightly too tall for my printer. Any advice appreciated!

If you resize the model, it won't fit the bulb socket. You may also have problems with top part (with petals) - with smaller clearance it will be harder to open it after printing.

Good job ! About red, yellow and black filament, what is the fabricant ? The reference exactly ? Thank you !

Thanks! For all parts I used 1.75 mm PLA from http://efilament3d.pl/ .
