Stroken Lamp2 3D print model
This is a Lamp for the ceiling that uses a standard E14 Lamp Bulb. It is build up out of 32 “strips” that give it the shape of an classic Vase. These strips (or in dutch: stroken) create stripe like shadows on the ceiling and walls. At 100% size this Lamp is around 362 mm high with an diameter of 218mm.
Tested with an FDM printer:
This lamp is made out of PLA and PET-G because I already had these materials laying around. This model is tested on an FDM printer with an 0.4mm Nozzle and a 200mm x 200mm Print Bed. With the slicer settings: 0.2mm resolution, 2 Wall lines, 4 Top/Bottom Layers & 15% Infill, it will take around 500 Grams of Filament to print this lamp. It took me around 48 hours to print.
Assembly after all the parts are printed:
Glue the parts “strook1” & “strook2” together. Do this 32 times. Then press them onto “ring1”. Then “ring2” can go on. This is very difficult because all the 32 strips (or stroken) need to be aligned. But they want to bend inward. For this I made a tool to keep them evenly apart, while pressing on ring2. I called it “assembly tool ring.stl”. It consist out of 2 peaces that together form a ring. This way it is easier to remove after ring2 is pressed in place. To get a better idea, please see the photo section. After that the Lamp Shade is done and the Light Bulb can be installed. I used a E14 Light Bulb, but you can choose any Lamp Bulb (or light source) you want.The part “cable lock.stl” can be used to hang the Lamp Shade onto the cable. You also need 2 M3x16 Bolts and 2 M3 nuts to assemble the Cable lock.
PS: Problem fix: The Lampshade is a not perfectly round or the 32 main parts are not evenly spaced. Please see this other Lamp presentation (The Laminar Lamp) on how to fix this with a Hot Air Gun: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/house/lighting/the-laminar-lamp
