May I ask an stupid question
what kind of software you used to turn the STL into Gcode
I used CURA But It Seem not work well
It can't support the star on the side
So it JUST CRASH QQ

Z-Suite. But it is only for Zortrax printer.

thanks for reply

Very nice. Wonder if it will work in PLA, or does it get too hot near the lamp? What did you use to generate the supports and what type of support material did you choose?

Any material should be fine if you will use led bulb. I'm using zortrax z-suite to generate support (in this case settings are 20° support light). Support material is same ABS as shade/base (zortrax has only one extruder).

Ciao! I'm sorry what layer and what infill did you set? Thank you!

Layer 0,2. Infill 50%.

Thanks for the reply - very nice design. Beautiful print the Zortrax managed. :-)

Finally! A great use for this brown plastic I've been hanging on to!.
That is a great design and a very nice print.

I would use a LED lamp (less heat do disform the plastic)

What type bulb are you using in it?

I am using here E14 LED Bulb 1,4W (Osram T26) but you can use any LED bulb with diamenter not more than 3cm / 1.18inches
