Build by linked thin hollow helixes this lamp takes full advantage of 3D printing freedom. The light distribution is homogeneous, the used white nylon material gives a warm light. Direct look to the lightsource is mostly hidden.

The model is an assembly of 3 stl parts merged to one. The main part consist of the hollow helixes, a base mount, and an adapter ring for E27 bulb sockets 10mm (available at home depot, Hornbach, OBI, etc. see picture). The main part has to be cleaned carefully by compressed air to blow out all powder. Tumble finishing is possible.

All parts necessary to build a light source are included in this assembly, excepting a lamp stand, bulb and cable. Please take a look on one of the pictures for an lamp stand example.

I’m happy with this model as table lamp and hope you enjoy it ! It's an ideal gift.

If you need a longer adapter ring: Adapter ring for E27 bulb socket 20mm

Looks best in WSF Polished.

I use compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) (cheap tubular or more expensiv helical type). But it is possible to use also old style incandescent light bulbs.
