3d print & walnut lamp | How to

We’re Evan and Katelyn and I don’t really know how to say this But we’re kind of a big deal people know us and our garage smells of rich walnut pl wood. We made a lamb It’s made of bits of real lamb and it turns on 60% of the time all the time I love lamp I love lamp We’re gonna 3d print the frame wrap it in copper tape and then attach wood panels So we’re gonna go see if we can find some really thin eighth inch wood thick enough that is substantial But we don’t waste good wood. We’re gonna see what we can find in the scrap wood pile. So I know the software isn’t the most exciting thing But I want to share one aspect of this that I thought was kind of neat. What I did for the first time is use a variable and what that allows me to do is input the variable instead of units and change The facets really easily. If I want five facets boom five passes six facets boom six facets, so it’s just kind of a neat thing. As many facets as you want! Before we printed the full 24 hour print or more We thought we would do a test-fit. One, we’re gonna see how thick the walls are and how the tape looks Pretty cool And two we want this to go through the hole. This is like lamp thread or something and Haha it’s called like lamp thread. I want a hole at the top the lamp so that I can adjust the height of this. nope nope Yeah The test looked good, so we printed the full thing. 24 hours later Let’s take this out to the garage and see how this goes together. It kinda looks like a lamp already which is cool. It’s time to cut the template and see if it fits in here. And if it fits, we cuts So in order to print without supports I chamfered this angle, but that means that I need to chamfer this too so we’re gonna add the chamfer and Keep on going until it works Oh, yeah, oh no. Tried to do it dramatically, but safely – but I think that looks pretty good Whoo that looks nice one more more okay before we go any further here We should probably finish applying all the copper tape. Yes let’s take these out and wrap. Wiki wiki what rap rap rap rap That’s how you rap. Alrighty, should we do the wood panels? One thing we didn’t account for is how we’re gonna get this out of this It no longer sits flat. We don’t want to reprint the whole thing for us We’re just gonna make a little fix just for this one But we’re gonna fix it for you guys in the final model. Are we gonna drill through the plastic? Yeah, I think just have it coming out one of these panels. We’ll just drill a small little hole, ooh And then we can 3d print a little thing to make it look official This goes- MegaMan blaster. So now we’re gonna wire the lamps. These are all pieces of a standard lamp kit. Put this base piece down over your wire See these two wires you want to give them both a little u-turn loops Next loop the two wires around the two screws making sure that you loop them Clockwise so that when you tighten the screws it pulls the wires tighter Clamping this was kind of tough. We tried rubber bands those failed hmm, we tried painters tape that failed We ended up using electrical tape and panicking a lot That actually worked really well, yeah What? This tape left like… a REALLY bad residue Oh, no! Let’s just unwrap it. Well at least we didn’t mess up anything permanently. I hope. Let’s buff this out a little bit. I have a thing where it’s like, we tried rubber bands that didn’t work, we tried blue tape that was terrible then we tried electrical tape, it works really well, then I’m gonna cut and be like, it didn’t work well. It didn’t work well! Hey better than before all right final two things. one lightbulb. It’s not on right? oh! No, no you need to take that out. that goes over this oh Look so good. It’s so legit. It looks really good! I love lamp! looks really awesome, okay, i have to see it from over here. Should we get some cool after shots? Yeah! Wow it is done the main difficult part was clamping it all together. All we’d do differently is clamp it in place with painters tape and oil it afterwards. putting the oil on beforehand made it really hard to cinch it all down we have links to plans, the model and the templates to cut out the panel’s below. and all the lessons we learned the hard way we’re fixing in the model We really like combining two different ways of making things, in this case Woodworking and 3d printing to make something unique so if you have any ideas on how we can combine different materials or techniques of making things, welding and 3d printing or woodworking and- you’re copying me! We really want to try it out and try new things so let us know in the comments below and if you’re a patreon the link to the after show is below so if you don’t know what that is we basically just Sit here and keep talking about more stuff that went wrong things we learned other behind the scenes stuff that’s going on so if you want to check that out, link below Thanks for watching and stay classy YouTube Joobie you know I don’t speak Spanish We can just get a longer rod. A nice, beefy rod. The lamp making community is going to LAUGH AT US Your mustache is falling down the left side right there, it’s lowering on one side. Is that better? I’m normal I’m so normal

  1. hehheeh. I still want to be the weather man. 😛 I love this lamp and for further fusion ideas, I have an old school callback. You guys can take this same design and make….STAINED GLASS LAMP!!! Only with some walnut inlay? I also think a double light setup where the inside lights up too to show off the glass colors….think about it….could be really cool.

  2. Great work. I can't believe I wasn't subscribed to you already. Fixed and looking forward to you content. Such a great team.

  3. Using superglue = no need to clamp due to fast setup time….
    And the top part should of been wood too imho
    Nice project tho

  4. Not sure how or why I wasn't sub'd to your channel but I fixed that. Excellent video and cool lamp. I have an idea now and I am going to make a lamp, too! Thanks for sharing this awesome content!

  5. looks nice, one idea why not just 3d print the lamp as a skeleton instead of infilling the panels? should save on printer filament and time printing..

  6. Love the lamp and how you know how mix different materials and make them work. I design a lamp and printed, now im making the silicon mold and then it will be made with concrete, it will be amazing if you make a video going threw that process. and alway sorry for my english…

  7. I'm watching this one and commenting again because it is awesome. Hey, YouTube algorithm…yea, you, algorithm, I'm talking to you. Start suggesting this to more people! 🙂

  8. the bloopers really make every video… special. i foresee a yearly blooper reel being your most popular video.

    i love that you combined two different methods to create something spectacular, yet did it in an approachable way. my favorite part: the variable! (did you give the var a clever name too?)

  9. To clamp the panels, if you make 2 wedges (to put on opposite sides) that when held up against the lamp the outside edge is at 90° to the floor, you can then use propper clamps to hold the pieces of wood in place……..

  10. Surely you could have saved a lot of material by just printing a sort of scaffold frame without the centres and using the wood to strengthen it?

  11. Se rifaron un muy buen uso de la tecnología y la madera sigan son su trabajo. So Cool. Its very nice how you combine technology with wood.

  12. A possible modification to save time and material might be to make a printed framework instead of solid panels, but leave a small area (1/4-1/2 inch?) for mounting the wood panels. It wouldn't be very sturdy until it was assembled, with the wood giving it the stability it needs.

  13. OMG… I love your channel!! I would have used CA glue and activator to put the panels on there. BUT I really like this lamp!!

  14. Very creative idea to combine 3D printing and woodworking. Also when the light is on, love the gradations on the walnut panels.

  15. Apologies for all my video comments lately.. I'm totally binge watching your channel in no particular order (sorry not sorry).. just wanted to say you guys have a great design aesthetic, pretty much everything you have made I can imagine being for sale in a big dept store … so awesome 🙂

  16. Just came across this video. Funny stuff you guys. Nice lamp. Oh, and if you haven't come across this yet, the tape that would have worked pretty well is gaffers tape. holds like a bandit, leaves no residue. Looks like duct tape but isn't.

  17. I made a lamp similar to this. But, mine was solid, and I only had depleted uranium for my 3D printer so I went with that. It worked, but it took six strong men to put it on the table. I never liked that particular table anyway, so when it collapsed (at 2 am) I was ok with it. My wife, however, was not. And making the shade out of welded cast iron took way longer than I expected. However, since I used the magnetron out of our microwave oven instead of a regular light bulb, it was important to contain the radiation. At least I THOUGHT it would contain the radiation. Turns out it sort of focused it instead. Yeah, we don’t even have to replace it, now that the dog glows in the dark, so – win win! I’m going to try making a lamp which burns diesel next. Should get better mileage. I’ll let you know how it goes, or, you may read about it in the news…

  18. I actually prefer the black 3D printed base on its own, and the one with walnut. Not sure about the copper tape. 😊 Good project. 👍

  19. there are better ways of making a body like that. Light the final lamp vanity shots better. Combine glass metal plastic and wood in one build involving at least 5 processes (welding, machining, hand tools, etching or some other finishing technique, casting). Have the choices play into the construction and aesthetic. Also have the piece transform and light up or do something with electronics.

  20. I thought maybe if you either just popped the wood in the panel areas without glue or used a magnetic strip to hold the wood in that way you can change out ten wood like if you wanted a different type of wood or to paint the wood you’d be able to change it out whenever with a magnetic strip holding it together.

  21. This probably would have looked awesome without the copper tape too. I would love to see different variations on this. :3

  22. There's this really neat tape that sticks to almost anything really well and doesn't leave a residue called Gaft tape. The only down side is how expensive it is.

  23. 3D print this again with just a ledge instead of sides and make your own resin/stained glass, and use this "lamp base" as the "shade".. that'd be cool to see

  24. Black electrical tape leaves residue.. put the colored electrical tape does not. We use it on copper and fiber cables for data centers all the time.

  25. Could you have printed out the sides of the lamp to have hollow centers with just a shallow edge for the wood panels to sit on and adhered to? I’d imagine it would save a considerable amount of time during printing. (I really have no right commenting on optimization as I don’t even have a printer myself, just curious as to if there was a reason for solid sides.)

  26. Be worth sanding the ridges you stuck your copper tape to first, otherwise it just shows through. Nice project though! 😁

  27. I'm loving these midcentury modern vibes! That's my aesthetic but it's hard to find it represented in design

  28. ive been watching so many of your videos that i’ve been getting ads for 3D printing stuff.. heh -w-“

  29. Love the lamp! Swear when you said you were going shopping for scraps you were just going to look thru your own stuff.

  30. Did y'all know we have 4 channels now? This main one, plus:

    (still figuring this one out 😂)

  31. I want t(to make) that lamp. But I don't have a 3D printer. Anybody have any ideas (If you know where to buy it, I'm from Belgium, so…)

  32. I liked the look of it before you put the copper tape on. The dark walnut with the black looked super sharp
