df3d is the leading 3D printing service provider and consulting service in India. They are the very definition of dynamic, and we’ve followed countless releases, activities, and programs that they keep the momentum going with inside their home country.

They provide consulting, support, as well as offering software and design platforms. For existing 3D printing entrepreneurs, they provide enhanced solutions.
It’s no surprise that df3d has produced something as subtle and hip as the lithopane lamp, considering that the design team at df3d has got some serious design and 3D printing chops of their own. We’ve followed projects as they have made an incredibly ornate, high end chess set, and collaborated on stunning 3D printed apparel that’s already hit the runways. Those were just amazing and fun works created on the side though, as the team mainly focuses on their 3D printing service bureau and is continually behind new projects like powering Osteo3D’s repository of 3D printed medical models, or launching their Extrudit 2D to 3D tool, and making a streamlined selfie app for it as well.
As they continue forging ahead, the The df3d team has taken time out to create the lithopane lamps in celebration of ‘The Festival of Lights’ in India. Also known as Diwali or Deepavali, the festival is an ancient Hindu annual tradition. Diwali is a huge celebration, and known for vibrancy and yes, lights. It’s a time for dressing up in fine clothing, praying together, exchanging gifts and lighting dayas, which are candles and lights. The lithopane lamp adds a beautiful and contemporary accent to the festival–as well as to homes around the world for any time of year.
We’ve followed designers who’ve produced a wide range of lithopanes previously, from beautiful works of art created on a LulzBot Taz 5 3D printer by Ben Malouf of Aleph Objects, Inc. to those of Miami artist Sandra Canning, who 3D prints lithopanes of nostalgic items and landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge. We’ve also seen other festivals commemorated with 3D printed lanterns, such as Stratasys’ 3D printed lantern for China’s Moon Festival.
As fall and soon, winter, are upon us quickly now, we will again look forward also to seeing many more innovative 3D printed items appearing on popular 3D printing retail sites, or as designs for many different challenges, as well as many incredible pieces made by hobbyists at the desktop. ‘Tis the season for the sharing of 3D printed innovation–and inspiration galore.
