These are globes that we designed to make some fanciful LED lamps with. We are working on integrating 3D printed elements with LEDS. These are printed up in semi-translucent PLA, which works very nicely. Since they are plastic and especially since they are PLA, you must use LED lighting that cannot melt them! Here is a short video showing them with the LED candles: https://youtu.be/LCAuRnpWAWk
Printer Brand: RepRap
Printer: Prusa i3
These were printed up in spiral vase mode.
We build 3D printers!
I've been following the RepRap project since about 2008, and building 3D printers since 2011. We started with a Techzone Mendel, and then I used it to print the parts for a Prusa version 1 which morphed into a verison 2. I used that machine to print up a pile of Prusa i3 parts. The cycle just keeps going!
