Let me introduce the highly customizable lamp shade. After serveral days of programming and tests, you are able to create countless different lamp shades.
You can create a cone, cylinder, cube, sphere, pyramid, star, flower and a dodecahedron shape. These are only the shapes I could find, but there are much more shapes to discover.
You can customize different sizes and the hole for the bulb bracket.
You can create a lamp shade as a ceiling lamp or a desk lamp or for a different purpose like a nice bowl or a vase.
You can view some examples in the pictures above.
You can use the Thingiverse Customizer or OpenSCAD to create your lamp shade. If you need a more detailed preview of the lamp shade, I recommend you using OpenSCAD. The Scad-File is well documented to using it in OpenSCAD.
The light blue lamp socket, that I'm using together with this lamp shade is this silicone one with a long sleeved cable (picture 1 and 2). It is available in different colors: https://goo.gl/4Lx9Ux
The diameter of the bracket is 42mm.
I recommend you to use LED light bulbs, otherwise the lamp shade could melt. For the setup in the picture, I use 3x 2W Osram filament bulbs. This equals in total a 75W bulb.
Please share your customized lamp shades to the community! I would love to see them!

I like to create things to save money and time. Wherever possible, I try to use aspects of ecological design. As a full-time software developer and pragmatic solution designer my focus is on the creation of customizable things.
