Prints (0)


Ambient Light using NeoPixels and a Arduino Nano as a light source :-)

The lamps shade is printed in PET-G using the “spiral outer contour mode” without any bottom layers.

The base is printed in silver ABS, 0.2mm resolution.

For both prints I used a 0.4mm nozzle.

The Arduino sketch and library I used are can be downloaded at: or They are from AdaFruit and I just changed it a bit so the LED's slowly change color. For more info:

The 6 LED's are soldered in series to form a ring. Because they can take a max of 60mA each, I took the 5V from the Arduino's internal regulator.

Note: I had to hot-glue the Arduino to the base, so it can't move while plugging the USB cable in and out.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask :-)

Do you have constructive comments or think I made a mistake? Please tell me :-)
