3D model of a mushroom lighter

A 3D model of a small mushroom as a USB lighter for the desk. The head of the mushroom has been 3D printed with glow in the dark filament, saving the light energy and continue glowing and after the switching-off.

The only thing that you have to do is to find an old USB cable, cut it and find the red and the black cables. You can use a simple LED just connecting the positive with the red and the negative with the black. A low resistor could be needed so not to burn out the LED. But generally, it is a very simple procedure.

THE HEAD

Supports or rafts

This part does not need supports or rafts. The last layers of the object have been designed as a bridge and not as a dome. Also, the bridge is inside and therefore there is no point to waste material.

Perimeters

Use of three lines perimeter.

Layer Height

Low layer height, i.e. 0.1 mm. It affects mostly the last layers, which is the bottom of the model. A higher layer can be used, but it will not make a nice bottom surface (or top during 3D printing). However, because the object is placed upside down, you will not be able to notice this detail.

Printing speed

High printing speed, with low to medium gap speed. However, the high speed can create perpendicular stripes on the object due to the vibrations.

Travel speed

High.
