3D model description

UPDATE: June 2020
American E26 style pendant housing a large globe (G-style) bulb

Two variations of 3d printed lamp shades - Open & Solid, ready for E27 socket. Concept emerges from having a simple hexagonal grid and basic shape of a lamp shade. Combining both into single product gives many variations trough different approach and modeling the shape.

3D printing settings

The size of the shades are 150x150x200mm/5.9"x5.9"x7.8"
They are printed out of ABS material using Zortrax, Ultimaker and Makerbot printers. While designing this shades we have in mind the technology and way how the object is printed. Trying to avoid any support material and use as less material as possible 60-100g of material is used to build this structure for about 8 to 10 hours.
