Ball and Socket LED Lamp

from Ball and Socket LED Lamp

This is an updated version of the ball and socket LED lamp. The part that holds the LED strip is larger to accommodate strips whose sections measure 10mm x 50mm (5050). Two sections are used for this lamp so it is a strip that measures 10mm x 100mm in total.

Also, the part that holds the LED strip is larger than the MP Select Mini’s 120x120x120 print area, but you can tell your slicer that the x or y distance is 130 instead, and this will print just fine at 100%. Print without a raft, brim, or skirt. I do it all the time.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
