3d printed articulating lamp - remixed  -  20 inch wall mount sink
Thingiverse on functional design. com!
I started using 3D printing in 2017, and that year I got my first printer and started getting into 3D modeling and printing.
At that time, I spent more and more time in the easy lab in the bedroom, doing different experiments with 3D printing and electronic equipment.
The first challenge I face is to print out my own tools in order to better organize and enjoy my space.
It was in this case that I decided that I needed to improve the lighting of the workbench.
I searched the internet for different models but none of them met my requirements.
That's when I found a wall --
Magnetic telephone holder designed by Kenneth Haynie.
This mix starts here!
The model, which serves as a mobile phone holder, has been transformed into a hinged fixture.
With the permission of the original author, I modified all the works in a similar pattern, and after I finished and satisfied with the results, I decided to share it with the community.
To my surprise, this model is very well accepted and even appears on Thingiverse, one of the largest platforms shared by the 3D print model, if not the largest!
The model was successful with over 220,000 views, 36,000 downloads and 7,800 likes!
To help the user print and assemble their own work, I shared a tutorial in instructures, which, to my second surprise, won nearly 20,000 in the plastic contest in 2017
What surprised me most was that other users started printing and creating their own mixes!
At the time of this article, more than 60 lamps have been produced and shared.
For me, it was a surprise to know that people all over the world like this model so much that they spent hours printing and publishing versions of my project.
In the end, the project has developed into a kit, such as Lego-
Users can make different combinations in them to form different structures.
In this tutorial, I present several Remix versions that I have developed over the last few years to improve the use of joint lights.
I will show you some remixes.
Made from a mix and match I originally designed, which is mixed from another design! )
3D printing parts links developed by members of the user community and details of each of my part versions.
Although it is very simple, I will show you the advice on how to assemble the lights and how to combine these parts into different structures.
Be careful when using electricity.
Make sure there is no short circuit, after making sure all components are properly connected and double insulated, just try to connect to the power plug.
If you don't have enough experience with electricity, others will help you.
Do not touch any exposed wires or any metal parts after the LED light is powered on!
Some LED lights have metal radiators.
Avoid touching the part when the light is on!
Once there are exposed wires, it is not recommended to use places that children or animals can reach.
Use it near the wet surface without any situation!
This is an experimental design so you can use it with caution.
The following tools and materials are used in this project: you may need some wires, power plugs and switches.
You can find it in the appliance hardware store.
The link described above is just a suggestion on where to find the items used in this tutorial (
And support my future hack).
Search them elsewhere and buy them in your favorite store.
Please be careful when using electricity.
It can be dangerous.
Some connectors and LED bulbs may reveal metal parts!
Don't touch the energy of it, don't let the child or pet touch it.
Make sure everything is completely isolated before opening it.
If you do not have experience working with electricity, please ask for help from someone with experience or use a lower voltage (e. g. 5V LEDs).
Collect everything and get ready for some action!
You know, you can get Creality3D Ender for just $199. 99?
In the following sections, I will tell you every piece of work used in this project.
The overall idea of the 3D model is based on the clarification of Kenneth, The Wall
Design of magnetic telephone bracket. Thanks, man!
For this lamp, I redesigned most of the parts using Fusion 360 and made some adjustments and improvements to my specific application.
You can find all the files in the following location: the original design had two models of arms: the idea here is great in my opinion!
The threaded end of one of the arms passes through the hollow end of the other arm, screwing a knob, that is, the 3D printed knob, to compress the two arms together.
The grooves and bounces on the surface of these two parts are used to lock the position of the arm.
Both models are still available and are still compatible with all the other parts.
However, the two types of parts slightly limit the installation of the lamp, as one should always use an even number of arms between the lamp holder and the anchor point.
The first remix of the project is to include a new type of arm with a threaded joint at one end (male)
There is a hole in the other end (female).
In this way, the lamp can be installed with any number of arms (
Even or odd number of arms)
, Make the structure longer or shorter as needed.
Special thanks to Robert Firth, who has great ideas for adjusting weapons (link). Thank you!
Different applications may require a larger spacing between the fixed point of the lamp and the object to be illuminated.
With this in mind, weapons of different sizes were introduced: 100, 140 and 200mm.
In the construction of the joint, any size can be combined together.
The idea was put forward after Ken Mckittrick's release and the 8 inch long arm (link)
And realize that this may be useful for different users.
Please also check div saW (link).
It uses the spring between the arm and the NUT to create a self-joint.
Since the model was created, one of the main points of most mixes has been the lamp holder.
Different users have proposed different models for different types of lights: from incandescent lamps to 5 v LED lights.
The original design was based on the use of LED lights with GU10 connectors.
You can find the lights and connectors in the appliance hardware store.
The idea here is very simple: The lamp is mounted on one side of the bracket in the circular cavity and the connector is mounted on the other side.
This assembly keeps the lights fixed and does not require additional parts.
A remix proposed here is to add a new lamp holder model to make it possible for a pair of lights on the same lamp holder.
Therefore, it is possible to achieve twice the brightness of the lamp.
The inspiration for this mix-and-match came from Lena brüd's design (link)
, It holds three lights in one bracket.
I think the three lights are too much for me, so I just redesigned it for a pair of lights. :)
Many users reminded me that the exposed contacts behind the socket are dangerous and there is a danger of discharge.
Carlos Martinez (link)
And Pepe Potamo (link)
As a safety improvement, a lamp cover is proposed.
But what really caught my attention was MAILLERE Brigitte (link)
, He proposed a lamp cover with a round switch for turning the light on/off.
I really liked this and decided to make my own version in an octagonal pattern in a format similar to the nuts used in my design.
The socket is hidden inside this structure and a circular button is installed opposite.
There is a hole in the side of the wire.
I also designed a simpler version with no buttons designed to cover the exposed contacts of the connector and avoid electrical problems.
As always, be careful to use even with this protective lamp cap.
The first suggestion I received was the wire holder for the lamp.
The wire between the connector and the socket is loose and is able to wrap around with the structure itself or with objects nearby.
It's good that some users use some zippers to solve this problem.
But Carlos Martinezlink)
Another good solution was proposed for this issue, followed by Pepe Potamo (link).
They designed a clip that drew the wire close to the structure of the arm itself.
Though, I want something simpler.
So I designed my own version of the wire clip, which is easy to use and easy to print, and I hope it's not too easy to break! :)
Users around the world have come up with different types of brackets for different bulbs (
Incandescent lamps, 5 v LEDs, etc. ).
I didn't try these mixes, but I encourage you to try if the lights you want to use are different from the ones I show here.
Here are some suggestions: GU10 holder (link)E27 connector (link / link)Ikea lamp (link / link)
Since the birth of this project, the fixed point of the lamp has been questioned.
The wall bracket was originally designed for a specific configuration in my office, where the lights can be installed in a gap between the two boards without the need for fastening screws.
In fact, this setting is very specific and few users will find the same facilities at home or in the workplace.
Therefore, another model for installation using a pair of screws is proposed.
It consists of three parts: the ledge (
Screwed on the wall), a joint (
It allows the lamp to turn 180 degrees around the fixed point), and a bolt (
For the installation of the joint, as well as the knob described earlier).
Soon, there was a lot of suggestions and a mix of new support proposals.
Some of them use John Joe's G-
As proposed by Morten Thorsen, the fixture design as a reference (link)
Tim Hesper (link).
They all look great!
This type of stand is very versatile because it can be installed on tables and other planes, including the 3D printer itself (
Popular components among printer owners! ).
I showed my support version here, mixed with John's model.
The model allows the mounting of the bracket on a surface up to 45mm thick and can be used on the desktop or shelf.
The model consists of three parts: the fixture itself, the bolt (
This is thread to fixture)and a cap (
Installed at the end of the bolt to compensate for the surface angle).
The complete assembly also uses bolts and knobs.
Another new support proposed here is the clip nail type.
This support is designed to be "cropped" on a flat surface with a thickness of up to 35mm ".
The advantage here is that, in addition to versatility, it is made up of a piece of work!
Printing takes longer, but it is made up of a single part that does not have an external moving part.
The last part I introduce here is the zipper iron frame.
It's by Gail lanfend (link)
Mix based on wall mounting sections.
It has several plug-ins through which the zipper can be passed.
This assembly allows the fixture to be fixed in tubular structures such as pipes and columns.
This is a good idea!
Some users also propose to install some models on 3D printers.
Like those by MAILLERE Lin Qingxia (link)
Simon kuturierlink).
Because different printers will have different settings, there is an infinite possibility for support like this!
You can print the parts described in the previous steps in the color you like.
Some parts, such as arms or knobs, may need to be printed more than once.
I printed all the parts with PLA with a resolution of 0, MM, fill amount of 20%, no stand (
Considering that you place it in the right direction, one of the stl files).
You can find all the files in the following locations: pictures of each part and executed tipe required to print them.

The assembly is very intuitive and self-explanatory, but I want to include some animations here!
: DAs I said before that there are several ways to install lights using more or less components.
Here I introduce how to assemble each component separately.
The threaded end of one arm of ArmsConnect is connected to the hollow end of the next arm and uses the knob to compress the two arms and lock their relative position.
A single lamp head connects its end to the threaded end of an arm and uses the knob to compress both and lock their relative position.
The double lamp holder connects one end to the threaded end of one arm and uses the knob to compress the two arms and lock their relative position.
The lamp connector puts the LED spotlight through the lamp holder and puts GU-
There are 10 connectors on the other side.
The wire bracket clamps the wire support in the arm to fix the cable.
The lamp cap passes the wire through the center hole of the part and connects the lid to the lamp connector.
The lamp button holds the button on the cover, welding the wire on the connector to the button terminal (
Not shown in animation)
, And the power cord through the cap hole (
Not shown in animation).
Connect the connector to the lamp button cap section and then connect the connector to the lamp.
The ledge connects the wall seam to the hollow end of one of the arms and holds it with a knob.
Close the ledge in the wall seam and pass the bolt through two parts.
Twist a knob at the end of the bolt.
Install it on the wall with a few screws. G-
The flap connects the wall seam to the hollow end of one of the arms and imprisons it with a knob.
Close the clip in the wall seam and pass the bolt through two parts.
Twist a knob at the end of the bolt.
Clip connects the Clip to the hollow end of one of the arms and imprisons it with a knob.
The pipe holder connects the wall joint to the hollow end of one of the arms and holds it with a knob.
Close the tube seat in the wall seam and pass the bolt through two parts.
Twist a knob at the end of the bolt.
Install it on a pipe or post using several zippers.
As I have shown before, the installation structure is easy once the parts are printed out!
By combining different components to create the desired structure, there are several ways to assemble the lights.
Below I introduce some "recipes" for installing lights: Recipe 1-Wall-Install lampHow-
Start with the wall hanging section.
Bolt through the wall bracket and the wall to connect the components and lock with a knob at its end.
Connecting female arms (or a mixed arm)
Connect to the wall connector using the knob.
Connecting the male arm (
Or another mixed arm)
Connect the lamp head to the female arm with another knob and connect the lamp head to the other end of the male arm with another knob.
Finally, pass the LED spotlight through the lamp holder and place its connector.
Your structure will be ready to be attached to the wall. Recipe 2 -
Desk/shelf installation lights (with clamp)How-

* N is the number of arms you want on the illuminated light.
You can add some Wire brackets in any recipe (
One each arm)
A button cap or a simple protective cap.
Be careful when using electricity.
Make sure there is no short circuit, after making sure all components are properly connected and double insulated, just try to connect to the power plug.
If you don't have enough experience with electricity, others will help you!
Do not touch any exposed wires or any metal parts after the LED light is powered on!
Some LED dots have metal radiators and some GU10 connectors have bare metal.
Avoid touching the part when the light is on!
Cover it with isolated material if necessary! It's done!
Turn it on and make it shine!
You can adjust the angle between each component so that the spotlight is aimed at where you want to illuminate.
Are there suggestions on how to improve the design?
Do you need to design traditional parts?
