Chapter 1. LAMP3D

by Caleb Cotter

Lamp3D is a small, repositionable, gooseneck-style LED lamp. It’s a fun and easy introductory project for those just starting out with 3D printing, electronics, and soldering.

The minimalistic design was inspired by the Loc-Line modular hose/pipe system that’s been used for anything from CNC machine lubrication to flexible shower heads.

All of the lamp’s structural components are 3D-printed, with no additional hardware required. We can easily customize it by adding more linkages (or “vertebrae”) or by modifying the lamp shade, and we can fabricate it on a very small print bed.
