About Project

These lovely lamps can make your home look more like a forest! The lampshades are in a modern and simple shape. But from one side, there is a hole and a tiny animal is hiding there. This series is still being tested and we just printed some prototypes for the client.

Solution

  • Step 1: The client split the model into different parts with Nomad, and export the STL file for printing. Our engineer would help her examine the model.
  • Step 2: We arrange the parts in software and add necessary supports. Then 3D print them with SLA Generic Resin. The layer thickness we set is 0.05mm and we control the tolerance within ±0.2 mm.
  • Step 3: When printing is completed, rinse the models with IPA and post-cure them with UV. Cut off all the supports, then polish with sandpaper.
  • Step 4: To make the surface look better, we spray some putty onto the models, then polish and paint them into matte white color with an airgun.
