Finding the files
Finding free STL files to 3D print is easy. All you need to do is a quick Google search for “moon lamp STL files” and you will find plenty of results.
Once you have found the STL files you want to use, download them to your computer and open them in a 3D printing software program. Most 3D printing software programs have a print preview feature that will allow you to see how your moon lamp will look once it’s printed.
Once you are satisfied with the way your moon lamp looks, send it to your 3D printer and let the printing begin! It usually takes a few hours to print a moon lamp, so be patient and let your printer do its thing.
Choosing a color
If you want to print your moon lamp in a different color, you can choose from a variety of colors. Moon lamp filaments come in a variety of colors, so you can find the perfect color for your moon lamp.
Once you have chosen the color you want to use, open the STL file in your 3D printing software program and change the filament color to the one you want to use.
If you are using an ABS or PLA printer, be sure to use a heated print bed so that your moon lamp will stick to the bed and not come off during printing.
Once your moon lamp is printed, all you need to do is add a light bulb and enjoy your new lamp!
Why I love this project
I love this project because it is a great way to show off my 3D printing skills. Moon lamps are a challenging project to print, and I am proud of myself for being able to print one successfully.
I also love moon lamps because they are a great addition to any room. They add a touch of personality and style to any room.
Finally, I love moon lamps because they make a great gift for any occasion. They are unique and everyone will love them. Maybe use them as a 3D printed wedding favor! You can even print them for money, whether you are a beginner 3D printer or a pro!
The 3D printing world has gone a long way since the first printer of its kind was developed in 1984 by Chuck Hall.
Over the span of nearly forty years, the technological breakthroughs have catapulted the possibilities of 3D printing projects into waves of new possibilities and have since become one of the best tools in the trade to whip up more than just essential items whenever needed.
This is a great toy for hobbyists who wish to push the boundaries of their creativity level to new heights.
If you’re into home decorating and into moon lamps, you would be hard-pressed to put together a design you can truly say is your own.
