3D model description

A lampholder for G4 bulbs. Use this to make your own lamps using recycled glass jars, timber and beads.

I use these to hold the LED bulbs into lamps that I design and make. My finished lamps are available for sale from my website or Etsy shop. I share the files for 3d printed parts here to encourage others to combine their printed parts with recycling.


3D printing settings

I get best results from printing with an Ultimaker 2, PLA, 0.8mm nozzle and 1.6mm wall thickness.

No. 6 x 25mm self tapping screws work well to fix the lampholder down through the printed holes. The G4 fitting should be a good fit when pushed into the centre (you might need to scale the model to compensate for any shrinkage, mine work fine...)
