Cube Lamp

This is a collection of 3D cube lampshades with a lamp holder. The lampshade sides are 2.5mm thick and have the design as the infill. You need to print at 90% infill for the full effect but 10%+ works. The lamps are 105mm wide and 200mm tall. There are 5 designs in this collection:

  1. “I Love Lamp” Lampshade - This design has the writing “I Love Lamp” on each side and 4 hearts with the word “Lamp” in on the top.

  2. Pun Lampshade - This design has a lamp pun on each side and a star on the top.

  3. Space Invaders Lampshade - This design has a space invaders scene on each side with a collection of space invader aliens on the top.

  4. Swear Lampshade - This design has a different swear word on each side with a collection of swearwords on the top.

  5. Electronics Lampshade - This design is a remix from this design and has a different PCB layout on each side and on the top.
