wine bottle - Custom 3D Printed Lamps Offer Fun Way to Ring in the New Year

(Photo Credit:  3dprint.com)  Just in time for the holidays, Avooq, an Astralian designer has created the SplashLight, a table lamp that can be made using a 3D printed base, empty liquor bottle and lamp wiring kit.  As the picture depicts, the plastic base mimics the look of wine being poured from the bottle.  After the base is printed, installing the socket and wiring makes it operational.

According to 3dprint.com, “Avooq shared the 3D model for the SplashLIGHT on the 3D printing website My MiniFactory, and the model can be adjusted based on the size of the bottle, particularly the opening into which the splash element, the 3D printed component of the SplashLIGHT, which serves as the base of the lamp, fits.”

 The SplashLIGHT is certainly more functional – and attractive – than the wine candleholders we made as kids.
