Overview

In this project we’re 3D printing a Dragon Lamp!

This dragon was inspired by Game of Thrones and actually has the Night King riding on its back! It was designed by the 3Demon team and it's a very detailed model with a high polygon count.

It comes as a kit with different versions. The flame is hollow and designed to fit over a light bulb. The flame is printed in translucent filament to better diffuse the LEDs.

 

We’re using the Circuit Playground Express to light it up and with its on-board NeoPixel LEDs you can make it look like a real flame!

You can change the colors or program your own animations using CircuitPython. In this guide, we'll get started with tips on how to print without supports and example code for the Circuit Playground Express!
