After many tests (my son would rather say months of tests ;-)) I propose you this table lamp of dimensions 12,7x12,7x17,8cm, composed of 4 photographs printed on backlight paper (Paper for backlit systems), of 8 different pieces to print, the whole fixed using screw / nut and magnet in pot. In the central part, a LED strip of 1m, will make it possible to light your photographs. Battery operated, you can install it as you wish. This backlight paper can be used with an inkjet printer. The use of a pot magnet makes it very easy to remove the top cover and change your photos. These magnets have a holding force of 2kg each, which allows the lamp to be turned over to light the LEDs without the photos falling to the ground (you can even carry the lamp by holding it by the cover, see attached PDF).
Attention, this lamp does not illuminate a room, but highlights your photos, images, or drawings.
You're gonna need it:
1 Battery operated LED ribbon lg 1m
2 pot magnets, diameter 4mm for the threaded part, diameter 10mm for the magnet part. Length 8mm
12 nuts M4
6 screws M4 lg 20mm
4 screws M4 lg 16mm
As these elements are "orderable" only in "industrial" quantities I have created a Kit with all parts.
You can find it on ETSY " Kit customizable lamp " ( Kit containing the LED ribbon, 2 sheets backlight, 2 magnets in pot ,screws and nuts, in short all the non-printable parts of this lamp) and also a set of 3 sheets backlight " Lot 3 Sheets backlight ".
You will also need software:
1 Irfanview style image software (free) to put your photos in effect mirror
Photoscape (Free) to assemble your images for printing (necessary to have the right dimensions)
1 3d design software style 123D Design (free) to customize the upper part of the lamp if you wish
This lamp was printed on a DAGOMA EASY200, 1.75mm PLA wire, 0.4mm nozzle, fast and hollow. All prints require 19 hours and 250g of filaments.
You will find attached, a PDF with a photo of all print settings, another for printing photos on backlight paper, another for mounting and a last to customize the upper part.
