Garden Light Ideas | Custom Globes for Solar Lamps
In this build video, I design a 3D printed globe for some inexpensive garden lights and give them a custom look. The build didn’t go exactly as planned, but check out how things turned out!
What was the other design supposed to look like? Well, I was going for a Rougier Tube Lamp style. It turns out that I miscalculated the diameter of the straws needed to completely cover the surface of the solar lamp. To make matters worse, the glue I was sure would work had some sort of chemical reaction with the straw plastic, and wouldn’t bond. It just turned into a disaster. I don’t think this will be my only attempt at making that style of lamp, but it just didn’t work out for this project.
That was my project day!
