I made several 3d geometries to test pipe rib maker script. I have choose the most simple sphere (Ball) shape for final design, which is ordinary paper lantern shape. pipe rib maker script could not apply for sphere geometry so each tongue and glove shapes are manually drawn by hand in rhino.
Then export 3d shape to Illustrator file for Lazercut. level number in etching was not used because of it was straight forward job, assembled with PVA glue and strong paper clips to hold ribs when its drying.
The most challenging part in lamp assignment was to design “shade holder” because I am using recycled light holder but not so pretty and wanted to use halogen light for sustainability. so needed to design all again how to stand stable and hide this plastic holder well. picture above is result of holder.
