By request, I have added an optional lid for the lampshade. I didn't include it in the original because my build used an incandescent lamp. I was concerned that the plastic would go all melty from the heat of the lamp with a lid on the shade. Several people have mentioned that with LED lighting it should work with a lid. I agree, but use the lid at your own risk. DO NOT use it with an incandescent bulb. You've been warned!
Mario themed desk lamp
This is a project based on a number of similar lamps I've seen on the internet. Some were made of cast iron, some with ABS plumbing pipes. Mine is completely 3D printed.
I used a free model of Mario called Mario (2) Trophy that I got from models-resources.com/download 3794. It was submitted by thegameexplorer and is from the game Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I had to do a bit of work on the .obj file before I could use it because it was open mesh. I wanted to modify it (to put the bead chain hanger on it). I also had to scale it up quite a bit because it was very small.
I wanted to use the Mario question block lampshade by leethegeek - thing 954281, but it was too big and scaling it left the sides too thin. I had to recreate it from scratch. Wanted to give credit though.
I also used Piranha pencil topper by BrandonW6 - thing 39443. All I added here was a stem for it.
And lastly, I used rtideas thing 744570 strain relief (slightly scaled up to accomodate my power cord) to attach the cord to the deck.
All the rest I designed myself.
