Can You Create Unique Lampshades with a 3D Printer?

Ever wondered if you could use an Anycubic 3D printer to effortlessly DIY various creative lampshades? Below is a simple and practical tutorial for crafting an internal corrugated lampshade:


Modeling:

Modify a cylinder using Freeform Deformation (FFD), adjusting control points to form a lampshade shell resembling a cylinder.


Texture Adjustment & Piercing:

Duplicate the lampshade shell, shrink its size to create internal structures. Adjust internal textures, then use Boolean operations to create holes for threading. Finally, export the STL file.


Slicing:

Set a layer height of 0.1mm, fill density at 20%, no supports, and choose an appropriate bottom edge width in slicing software.


Printing & Sanding:

Print the model using a 3D printer, and after completion, sand it using sandpaper. Use atomic gray for filling gaps, followed by finer sanding.


Coloring:

After cleaning the model, use spray paint for coloring. Start with a white base (or a custom color), and apply multiple layers for enhanced coverage.


Assembly:

Prepare materials for assembly (LED bulb + wire + plug). Remove the switch and thread the wire through the lampshade.


Testing:

After assembly, test the lighting effect, and enjoy the fresh look of your new desk lamp.


This method is straightforward and practical. With 3D printing, you can add a personalized touch to your desk lamp. Give it a try!
