An accessory to turn a tiny flashlight into a mini lantern that will light up small areas (useful during power outages or camping). Three parts are all printed at 0.25mm layer height with no support and screw together with built in threads. Only the top has to be printed upside down to not require support, but the rest can be orientated right-side up. The diffusive globe part can be printed in white or natural translucent filament or for an added bonus with glow in the dark filament for extra glow once turned off. Base has void to store coins to weigh it down if desired (or a magnet to make it ... well magnetic!). Top has holes to attach a bent wire carrying handle.
Thicker walls (~2mm thick), takes a bit longer and uses more filament but slightly better diffusion and probably longer glow if glow in the dark filament is used. Print right-side up at 0.25mm layer height.
