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 conbine their printed parts with recycling.
Look out for an 'instructable' about how to make my lamps...

I get best results from printing with an Ultimaker 2, PLA and the 'Fine' quality setting. For some filaments that are translucent or tend to be brittle, I increase the wall thickness to 1.2 or 1.6.
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...)
This prints in 4 hours, for the fine setting, and 7.5 hours is the wall thickness is increased.
