21st century light bulb

Simple Light, made of laboratory glassware. Nothing special, just one of the infinite application possibilities of my 3D-Printer.




The printed parts: (stl Download)

The bulb and the light: 

Bought the "glass" some years ago, had no use for it so I decided to make a Light.




I totally forgot that I recorded the making ;)

  1. Amazing idea, maybe now people can find all that abandoned glassware that shows up at charity shops and put it to use.

    I have a fairly nice red glass sphere bowl here, put blue/green LEDs in that and it should approximate white nicely.

  2. What kind of LED's did you use? I'd like to do something like this.

    1. This are "12V G4 5 SMD LED Warm White Light Bulbs"
      You can get them on ebay f.e.

    1. I got the glass quite cheap on ebay for 15€. The LEDs and the other parts are around about 5€.

  5. Nice project. How are you controlling the power of the LEDs? PWM, currentlimit? I have bought 6 LEDs myself to try out a something like your project. But I have not been able to find any electrical specifications these LEDs, other than the 12V stated. Is that suppose to mean that the 5 LEDs per module is connected in series, such that the forward voltage drop is around 12 volts? And current limitation?

    I hope you have found some more information than me.
