Dasyn opened a hands-on and displayed bulbs with sparkling 3D-printed cover at Maker Faire Tokyo 2017 (August 9, 2017)

Dasyn opened a booth in Maker Faire Tokyo 2017 at Tokyo Big Site on August 5 to 6. Dasyn exhibited and sold bulbs and lamps with sparkling 3D-printed shades. Dasyn also opened a mini hands-on (workshop). In this hands-on, visitors can design PLA bulb covers and assemble LED bulbs. Five visitors chose favorite cover designs, modified them, and created their own bulbs with a 3D printer. Printing ABS globe stands were also demonstrated. Moreover, many prefabricated bulbs and shades with AC 100 V, DC 12 V, USB (5 V), or battery power supplies, which included ice-cream bulbs (see the second photo), were displayed and sold. More detailed information is available in Japanese.

Dasyn exhibited and sold bulbs with sparkling 3D-printed cover at “HandMade In Japan” (July 25, 2017)

Dasyn joined HandMade Japan on July 22 to 23 at Tokyo Big Site. Dasyn exhibited and sold bulbs and lamps with sparkling 3D-printed shades. Three types of lamps, i.e., ones for AC 100 V, ones for DC 12 V, and ones for coin batteries, were displayed.

I recommended customers to replace filament and fluorescent lamps by designed LED lamps, and I also offered to design LED bulbs by themselves. I accepted one on-the-fly design order of a lamp with batteries, but no other orders.

Dasyn will co-organize a 3D-printing workshop at ICTCO (November 6, 2016)

Yasusi Kanada, who is the CTO of Dasyn, will be the lecturer of a workshop organized by Tokyo Maker and Dasyn. The workshop title (in Japanese) is “Let's create lamp shades with a 3D printer”. In this workshop, participants will design (select a design of) a brilliant, light, and transparent lamp shade, and print it using a 3D printer. Lamp shades can be designed freely by writing a Python program, but they are selected from thousands of possible designs because time is limited in the workshop. The workshop will be held in ICTCO, which is an incubation organization of Nakano, Tokyo.
