Summary

Instructions

We used colorFabb PLA/PHA filament for the lampshades. Since it’s a PLA filament it does mean that a LED or Energy Saving Lamp must be used. An ordinary lamp will generate too much heat which will make the PLA very pliable.

You can print the designs with or without the top. We also recommend the spiralize outer contour mode available in Cura.
