|New Flower [message #56991] Sat, 17 November 2012 11:42 UTC
Heres a new design. This version is only for from/fit testing. Later revisions will be lit. The stem consists of 2 interweaving (not connected) layers, and a cored centre to allow for either a single LED or a larger diameter fiber optic. The flower is hollow with a hole at the base . Stem and flower connect with a simple push fit. Yet I think i will change this to a ball and socket for added stability.
Ill offer a version of this unlit through shapeways so people can DIY or just use it as an ornament .
Im pretty sure but WSF wont conduct electricty right? And that warning on the side of the newer boxes, that reads ' The products should not come into contact with electricty' doesnt apply to wires that are properly insulated?
Oh BTW from order to receiving was 5 days ......and i ordered on a Sunday. Nice one Shapeways.
EDIT: The dimensions for the flower alone are:
In: 2.6 w x 2.6 d x 2.4 h
Cm: 6.5 w x 6.5 d x 6.0 h
