LED Desk light/sign

Prints (0)


Summary This is a remix of Desktop_Makes tealight design adapted to make a little desktop sign with an embedded logo. After receiving the May 2017 3D Geek Box, I wanted to make something using the included filament, batteries and LEDS. I decided to make a little desk light with my logo on the "lightshade". I was inspired to do this by the acrylic led signs that many people have been creating by etching a design into a piece of acrylic and then placing it into an LED base to illuminate it. I didn't feel like buying a piece of acrylic, so I came up with this. Not a bad alternative, IMO.
