Ultimate LED Cube Accent / Night Lightby
Model originally uploaded to Thingiverse at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3567836.
Update 7/5/19 - These work great for night lights. I used them in the hotel when we went on summer holiday. Tired of walking around in a dark hotel room? One in the bathroom works great for an entire trip! Just turn it on before going to bed and the kids (and youre toes) will love it!
This 3D Printed LED Cube is quick and easy to make. These are fun for all ages and can be incredibly useful for accent lighting. Originally designed as a toy the more I printed these the more fun I had. In fact I printed an entire set just for myself. I had to buy more filament because I used everything I had making all the fun cubes.
Bill of Materials
- Ultimate LED Cube downloaded from Thingiverse
- Color Changing LED Tea lights available from Amazon (although almost any should work)
- Solutech Clear PLA Filament
Once you have everything you will want to print the model using the clear PLA. I have printed these on PETG as well however the PLA seems to work a little better.
Cura Print Settings
- 3 perimeter walls (for added strength)
- 5% infill using Triangles (gives it the star look on top)
- .3 mm layer height (prints it very fast)
- Print without supports.
Rotate the model or ensure that the hole in the cube is facing up.
