the icoled is a 3d printed continuation of the isoled paper version a made a couple years ago.The paper isoled light I made before looked good but was very vulnerable and having bought a 3d printer recently this was a nice opportunity to make a plastic one.

first idea was just the icosahedron structure made from modular 3d printed parts on which the paper parts could be sticked.

In the second iteration I combined to white and red parts into one

and did a nice trick to be able to printy a stack of modules at once. The parts are printed as a colom but can easily be separated. this graetly reduced print times and a stack of 6 could be printed each night

I also did some tests with rounded 'bulbs' but it was difficult to get constant quality in the prints.

assembling some of the modules

I also changed the leds and used a strand of 12mm diffused leds. Soldering the ws2812 leds myself like I did previously turned out too much work.

the leds are controlled by an arduino an you can shift through the palettes with a knob, or remotly by phone and voice commands
