This Beautiful Lamp Shade was created in 4 stages:
Stage 1: Create Sea-Stars ball using Topmod.
Stage 2: With Meshlab define borders.
Stage 3: With Meshlab create Voronoi surface.
Stage 4: Make the model Organic, smooth and ready for 3D printing.
On top there is a base for attaching a bulb fixture - with a cut hole of 30mm. (increase it as needed)
Use ABS or PLA (depends on your Bulb/LED Watts)
I recommend White strong Nylon with these high quality 3d printing services:
For USA: ponoko.com
For Europe: i.materialise.com
I dont recommend Shapeways - in my experience they produce low quality prints.
