Great work buddy, but the amazon.de link links to a product which is unavailable :/ Any chance to get a recommendation from you?

I recommend roughing the edges of the acrylic rod where it protrudes from the top. This will let light spill out the side, rather than just from the top. I was able to rough it by scoring it with scissors, but sandpaper or a Dremel might work better.

Are there suppose to be holes in the base where the brick mortor is to be? When I slice it its not solid as expected.

It is not supposed to have holes. Standard settings with 0.4mm Nozzle should work. If you have your extrusion width (external perimeters) set much more that 0.45mm that might cause gaps at the walls between bricks. The wall thickness there is only meant to one perimeter thick. Also, if you scaled down the model at all that might cause the wall to get to thin to print.

Not scaled down: My Prusa i3 Mk3 is running on a 0.4mm nozzle. 0.42mm for all settings related to Extrusion Width.

Comments deleted.

Weird, I have the same printer. I sliced it at 0.42 and I get the result attached. I can't think what would cause your issue.

Ah, hold on, I think I found the issue. In Slic3r under Print Setting->Layers & Perimeters->Quality make sure "Detect Thin Walls" is unchecked.

Amazon link for the acrylic doesn't work :(

Any chance you have a file without the lights?

nevermind must be cyber week lag on amazon's part.

Check the file it is remixed from: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2990524

Stone Pillars for Gloomhaven
by Robagon

Love this.

Might look better if you sanded the bulb cover...thing...rather than the light pipe? The clear cover makes it look more like an olde-fashioned street lamp than a torch. Still, it's amazing.

Good thought, maybe I'll try that. However, they do look more diffuse in person than in the picture.

If you don't sand the light pipe all the light just comes out the end.

Great to see the finished product, RobagoN!

Thanks, it sat on hold for way to long. But I am happy with the results.

I wish I could like this more than once, it's such a clever idea!

Hey Rob,

This is a thing of beauty. Great design. If I can get the parts in Australia, I might just print up a few of these, for my Gloomhaven board.


Thanks nestyr! I added some aliexpress links. I think they are the same lights.
