3D model description

Perforated lamps with pre-designed wall projection patterns:

I have always liked light. Light is romantic; Light is imaginative; light is colorful; light is mysterious; light represents hope; light is a world of unbounded dreams.

In this project, I developed a C++ program that generates perforated lamps based on pre-designed wall projection patterns.
The program takes in two kinds of inputs: a lamp shape STL model, and pre-designed light projection patterns on the 6 surrounding walls of the lamp. The program will then generate holes at the corresponding places on the lamp model and output a perforated lamp STL model. The perforated lamp, when put in a light source inside, will then project the desired patterns on the walls.

I made three demo pieces, where each of them is an artwork of a theme. The program is made available on my GitHub for anyone to use for their own design purposes.
