Ring Lamp2 3D print model
This Lamp is build up by 15 Rings. Together they form a Vase shape. The light gets blocked partially by the Rings. This creates nice Shadow effects on the Walls.
Assembled, this Lamp is 265mm high and 200mm wide. I printed it from PLA and that took around 42 hours and 420 Gram of Filament. I included an image in the Photo Section with the Slicer Software setting included.
This Lamp is very easy to make because it uses a standard Light Bulb as a light source. Any Bulb and Fitting that fits, can be used. I used a E27 LED Bulb and Fitting. You also need 2 M3x16mm Bolts and 2 M3 Nuts and a electric Cable with Wall Plug to make this Lamp.
All parts need to be printed once, except for “arm.stl”. Arm.stl needs to be printed 3x. Lock ring1.stl needs to be printed with Support material.
The file “Ring Lamp Assembled” , will give you a 3D look of the Lamp when all the Parts are assembled.
To assemble the Lamp, I included an Image in the Photo Section (Ring Lamp2 assembly). In 13 Pictures you can see how the parts come together. 1 Tread the metal treaded part that comes from the Bulb Fitting, into “Fitting Tube.stl”. 2 Gather parts lock ring1.stl, cable bracket.stl,2 M3x16mm bolts & nuts. 3 Install the bolts & nuts as shown on this image. 4 Test fit the “Fitting Tube into the hole of “Lock ring1”. It should slide-in easy. 5 Push the Rings (except ring1) into 2 arms (and leave the third one out for now). This makes it a bit easier. 6 Temporary secure the 2 Arms in place with wire. Otherwise they will pop out when pushing in the third arm. 7 Mount “ring1.stl” and the third Arm. 8 Mount the remaining rings and Glue the last one (ring15.stl) onto the bottom of the 3 Arms. 9 Insert Lock Ring1 on the Top to lock the Arms and Ring1 in place. 10 Turn Lock ring2 to lock Lockring1 into place. In the image I turned it the wrong way :-( . 11 Put the electric cable through the hole in the Top and install the “Fitting Tube.stl” and the Bulb Fitting. 12 Install a Light Bulb. 13 Insert the “Fitting Tube” into the hole on the inside of “Lock Ring1”by pulling it up by the electric Cable. Lock the electric Cable. Then tight up the M3 Bolts to lock the Cable in place.
