    Hello everyone,

    I'm new and need help with my table lamp. This is for my current school project. I don't know how a lamp is constructed! :confused

    I started off with the design and this is how far I got. I'm pleased with how it looks but what now?

    The wall thickness is around 1 mm. Will the light get through? How is the lamp gonna fit? Did I forget a part?

    By the way, will the snake and apple be two separate objects or are they connected? I made this in Cinema 4D and connected the snake with the apple with the connect object.

    Well there is a way to make it, and get a lamp. http://i.competitive
    Now that would be more expensive then buying a lamp or the guts of a lamp and building your shade on shapeways. But you can use their template as a guide and still do your printing through shapeways. Or you can do it through them and have the whole thing delivered to you. Also look through there gallery. They use the same material as shapeways WSF, at .7mm-1mm I was told light doesn't penetrate too much, but causes it to glow
