3d printed light bulb and painted cap. Custom cnc machined base by us at designanything3d. Very bright leds and on off switch on the bottom.

Now that's cool. Any particular reason why you went the CNC route with the base, rather than 3D printed? Cheaper?

Thank you! The cnc route for the base was 2 fold. The cost of a 3d print was as much as the light bulb itself. Doubling the print cost. The material for 3d print was also very light. We used a solid surface material called corian for the base because it could easily be heated and formed (for the letters) . It is very dense and adds a bit of weight. People like the heavy feel of an award, it makes it feel substantial.

I had no idea that corian could be heated and formed. Interesting. So the letters were cut out flat and then formed to the circular shape? Good job.
