The stuff is in 2 parts, electronic modulesand the wooden.
Actually all the above-mentioned module wasin
Wooden and laser cutter.
3D Print a lampshade:
You can find a laser cutter and 3D printereasily if there’s a maker space near from you. I can say that every maker spacehas a laser cutter and 3D printer. If you can’t find the wooden board of alaser cutter, you can try the lasercutting serviceand3D printing servicesupply by Seeed.
You need to find a 4mm wooden board first, thesize should be larger than 400x400mm.
You can download the file here.
Here we will cut some frosted acrylic andembed into the wooden.

We need some 3M double-side tap, or glue gunis ok if you can’t find the 3M double-side tap.
Here we will print a lamp shade and laser cutsome holder, thus we can install the rgb led on the wooden board.

And you need some No.502glue or AB glue here.
You will find 2 Grove connect on the BBG. Whatyou need to do is just connect the BBG to the Grove with some cable:
1.BBG I2C Port > I2C Hub
2.I2C Hub > Grove – 3AxisAccelerator
3.I2C Hub > Grove – I2C ADC> Grove – Button
4.BBG UART Port > Grove –Chainable RGB LED
First, you should set the Grove UART socketas a GPIO port, if you don’t know how to do it, just follow this link.
You can download the example code by click here.
Copy the “3.Wooden_Lamp_BBG” folder to “/var/lib/cloud9”.
$ cp 3.Wooden_Lamp_BBG /var/lib/cloud9
Run the code
$ python colorbox.py
Finally we got to the last step. After thisstep we will get a lovely wooden lamp.
Refer to the image below to view the detailsfor assembly.
The last but not the lease, you may ask: Youuse a BBG to control a LED, it’s just a waste.
Well, never mind about it, just because I gota BBG by hand. And you can change BBG to an Arduino easily.
