3D model description

A Jack-O'-Lantern for Halloween!

The base, lid, and stem are separate since I wanted to print the stem in a different color. I was able put the stem and lid together for a single extrusion print too.

My daughter came up with the idea to have the light hanging from the lid. We used adhesive magnets for this and it works well. It has the flexibility of putting the light at the bottom or the top. We like the top since the space between the eyes generally blocks the intensity of the actual light and we get a better glowing effect.

These could make for fun candy dishes too (as long as the candies are not too small).

I've been wanting to make a jack-o'-lantern for over a year. It was fun to finally put this together. The face design is how I always carved my pumpkins as a kid. Maybe I'll try some new designs too. It's certainly easier to "carve" on the computer than with a knife.

3D printing settings

I used a 0.3 layer height to save print time and it looks good for the purposes of a Halloween decoration. In the model there is a tiny gap in the design between the lid and the base.

I am a high school math teacher and 3D printing hobbyist. I have been 3D printing since 2017 and enjoy making things for my classes and my own children and home in San Diego, California, USA.

I design with Mathematica, CorelDRAW, Fusion 360, and Tinkercad. I love my MakerGear M3-ID and my Palette 2S Pro. I have a Prusa MK3S as well. I started a 3D printing sub-site, but it needs some updating.
