3D model description

UPDATE: assembly manual PDF added

UPDATE: added an Ender3 buildplate compatible main arm, now it fits!

poseable, articulated structure

This is a 3D printable industrial excavator themed desk lamp. You need an Ulanzi VL-49 RGB light for it, but included a connector part so you can assemble it without one.

Here is my affiliate link, if you buy through this I get some percent from AliExpress:

BE AWARE that the tracks are only design elements. They are not moving. The base consisting of 5 parts is GLUED together.

I want to thank @Bugman_140 for the help with fake "hydraulics" arms. They are designed for 4mm steel rods. But if you don't have any.. it can be replaced with PTFE tube.

They are needed in three different lenghts: 60mm , 90mm, 110mm

Also I included a part to connect the showel to top arm if you don't have an Ulanzi light YET! :)

Feel free to ask questions, I will help with the build.

3D printing settings

I recommend mostly 0.2 layer heights. On the Big parts you can go even 0.3, 0.4 with bigger nozzles.
Only part that needs 0.15 precision is the hydraulic cylinder and the cap for it. Because of the threads.
