For the manufacture of such a lamp you need the following
Tools and materials:
-ESP8266 board; -USB-cable; -Slide switch; -3D-printer; -Superglue; -LED strip WS2812B; -Wires; Step one : 3D Printing Files
The first step is to print the details of the table lamp housing. The device itself consists of two parts, the luminaire itself and the electronics housing.
The “Transparent Sheet” part must be printed with transparent PLA filament with 5% coverage. The rest of the parts are printed with PLA filament at 20% coverage.
