Excellent design, love it! How did you achieve the pattern and which software did you use? Thanks for sharing, would love to see the final gsrden lamp as an update here

Thank you!

I designed it in Rhinoceros 3D, it is fairly simple to do but requires a lot of prep work on the surface.

You just have to unwrap the UV’s (they develop as a simple rectangle), arrange the pattern, extrude the pattern (a boolean difference operation was the simplest way I found), flow the pattern extrusions along the surface, and finally do a boolean difference.

You have to design the surface in such way that it can be unwrapped tho, because otherwise it would be really hard to do it.

Of course I’ll post some photos of the finished lamp! I’m just waiting for some led lightbulbs to arrive :)
