This is a simply beautiful model! I added a Wemos D1 mini, an RGB light strip, hooked it to WLED and it made a great valentines day gift to my wife. I made a video of how I setup everything and programmed the Wemos D1 Mini:
Home automation integration with home assistant: (Makes it a smart lamp)https://youtu.be/rSEiJLhP9IE
Printed on an Ender 3 Pro
.3mm layer height, no supports, but I did use a raft and printed it upside down. Note: Dial your rafts in if you do this, otherwise it really damages the top! I had to make a 'cap' to hide the damage essentially, and then did a bottom to hold the electronics.
Took 70 hours I believe to print, so make sure you've dialed everything in. I had to do a bit of cleanup..make sure your temperature towers are dialed so you don't get too much stringing, and be ready for some insane bridges as it goes around.
It's a super fun print to watch, and there are some great timelapses of it out there!
The design of the 'baffles' works really really well with RGB lights, and if you use individually addressible (WS8212s or neopixels) then you get some amazing effects as each LED almost gets segmented..and then when you animate it it really looks great!
Thankyou so much for the fun and amazing design
