3D model description

The purchase of a set of battery powered t-light candles inspired this project.
The candle is held in the base by a disk that is secured with super glue before the glass and top (which is part of an old water bottle) are glued.

STL’s I have uploaded for the top are for both as one part and as separates. The reason for this is that I hate using supports, I feel sometimes it is just a waste of filament, so I always try to find another way. If this means having to glue a part together I am happy to do that, but those who don’t mind I have included the top as one part that will need supports.

My print quality on this model is not good. I have had major problems with my printer and am only just starting to get decent prints, so please no comments on the quality of the print in the picture.


When assembling i found the super glue would not stick the water bottle plastic, so had to switch to hot glue for this.

3D printing settings

Printer used was a GeeeTech MeCreator 2
supports were used and i used a 30% infill on the larger parts and a 100% infill on the smaller ones

I always wanted to be a draftsman and have always had a passion for designing things. I started my life as a cabinet maker, so love making things, whether it’s out of paper, cardboard, wood or plastic.

I am a keen crafter and amateur book binder. I love computers and consider myself very computer literate. I have taught IT, built my own PC’s, repaired PC’s and worked in IT for a short while. So it was only natural that considering my background I would move into 3D printing.

I consider myself a novice, but am learning new techniques every day and love Thingyverese. What a wonderful place to learn and share my work with like minded people.
