It carries a futuristic look that kids and adults will adore. This lamp is the perfect starter project for beginners of 3D printing and CAD software.
This lamp fuses together electronics and 3D printing together. This useful household item is a great way of teaching students the art of 3D printing. The same designing principles could be applied to make cases for other electronic gadgets.
The lamp, after being designed on Autodesk, was printed in the Robok 3D printer. Kitronik collaborated with Robok to provide 3D printers to UK schools, last year. Their latest lamp design should comply with standard desktop printers. The company sells Robox printers on their website.The design for the lamp can be downloaded online for free.
