Designing the Knot Lamp
This model has inspired me to design the Knot Light Shade with the help of a flexible LED strip as the light source.
I first removed the sphere and welded a base, i then hollowed out the entire design so that the wall thickness throughout the design is exactly 1.5mm.
Why 1.5mm? – When it comes to light shades you want a solid structure but not too thick to block the light.
1.5mm is also the bare minimum when 3d printing light shades in white Nylon aka Polyamide SLS
Take any white/warm LED strip and insert it from the base all the way thru the inside loop till you reach the end of the knot.
Secure the LED’s power wire thru the base’s hole and you’re done.
