Now that I have my 3D printer
working again I was able to put it to some good use and made these top and bottom covers for an old Ikea KVARNÃ lamp
. This lamp was sitting in a cupboard gathering dust for a long time because well it looks boring. With these couple of covers I think it really springs to life!
I created the design in OpenSCAD
, it didn't take very long, but I am quite familiar with this software. The .scad
files are available from Thingiverse
here: Ikea KVARNÃ lamp bottom and top cover
I used some liquid nails
to adhere the bottom cover to the lamp. The top cover just pops on. There was quite a bit of clean up I had to do with some fine files after printing, that's just a slight issue with my 3D printer
This is what it looks like without any covers...
Enjoy making your own!
