3D Printed Lampshades: Intricate Shapes and Novel Patterns
3D printing technology enables a designer to create some amazing intricate shapes that can not be made in conventional methods. 3D printed lampshades are everywhere, and designers increasingly discover the possibilities to merge light with 3D printing.
When it comes to designing novel lampshades, a designer now can easily create patterns and light-paths allowing light to pass through certain areas, masked or dimmed – thus creating a specific mood or generating a warm and comfortable atmosphere.
