"Quartz Crystal" Automatic Votive Nightlight for Photon

Having just recieved and early Father’s Day gift (3D Printer) I wanted to make something for my daugher and put together this 3D printed “Quartz Crystal” looking nightlight, available here on GitHub

thanks to Forehead on Thingiverse for the cool sculpture. I did the base.

I am using Tim Bartlett’s NeoCandle work available on GitHub to make the flame flickering look pretty darned realistic.

That’s pretty cool. What else do you plan on making with your printer?

Thanks! I really want to start making some enclosures for some of my projects that are just sitting around naked with wires all over the place. :smirk: Making my wife very happy…
