Buttery, creamy and super smooth. This is our base material for all of our PLA/PHA filaments. It’s a great neutral color which is just a slight bit translucent, which helps hide the layer definition.

Hacking Ikea Lampan with 3D printed parts

At the Eindhoven Mini Maker Faire design studio Van Alles Wat Ontwerp presented a pretty clever way of personalizing the Ikea Lampan lampshade. An interactive installation allowed users to draw their own lampshade designs on a piece of paper, while simultaneously a 3d model is being rendered on a screen! We’ve seen children making beautiful 3d designs by simply drawing on a pieve of paper, amazing!

All the designs are posted on thingiverse.

The lampshades were 3d printed with various colorFabb PLA/PHA filament. WoodFill proved to be especially pretty with little light behind it.
