Thingiverse
Shy-light
by Thingiverse
While provocatively curved, she is indeed very shy!
She only allows a glowing glimpse of what she holds inside.
A light shade for LED tea-light or Luxeon/Cree LED.
Hiding the source from direct view, it results in a gentle light emerging

Part of the (r)evolutionary twin-shell series.
This family of shapes is one of my older pet projects.

Over the years I designed and printed many shapes, sizes, thicknesses, slopes and variations.

I usually mount the Cree-LEDS on an aluminum disc which is spray painted black.
Besides looking very stylish this also function well as a cooling method for the LED.

The current selection presented is optimized for home printing without support.

From this particular iteration I have already printed Adam, so all should be OK.

Without further delay...

Please meet:
Eno, Adam, Eve and Ando!

Ca 12.5cm high and wide, with 2mm wall thickness.
