Hi makers, we are here again with a beautiful and stylish lamp Project. VORONOI HEART LAMP. In this project, we benefited from epoxy resin material and 3D printer.

Step 1: What Is VORONOI ?

In mathematics, a Voronoi diagram is a partitioning of a plane into regions based on distance to points in a specific subset of the plane. That set of points (called seeds, sites, or generators) is specified beforehand, and for each seed there is a corresponding region consisting of all points closer to that seed than to any other. These regions are called Voronoi cells. The Voronoi diagram of a set of points is dual to its Delaunay triangulation.

Step 2: What Is EPOXY ?

Epoxy resin is known for its strong adhesive qualities, making it a versatile product in many industries. It offers resistance to heat and chemical applications, making it an ideal product for anyone needing a strong hold under pressure. Epoxy resin is also a durable product which can be used with various materials, including: wood, fabric, glass, china or metal.

So we think about Voronoi heart. We designed it as a lamp. There is no more materials. You will find them easly. In this project, we are using just Arduino Nano, a resistor and a red led. That’s it. After you have a Voronoi heart lamp, use it yourself or give it to your loved ones. We bet they'll certainly like it.

Step 3: Materials

We need some electonic and printable materials . As you can see in pics;

- Arduino Nano

- Red Led

- Voronoi Heart

- Boxes

- Epoxy Resin + Hardener

Step 4: Making Epoxy

Firstly, we are starting with epoxy. we need resin and hardener. we have 100%. 20% Hardener + 80% resin.

Step 5: Assemble Voronoi Heart and Led

We are soldering the led legs. and than we put it into the voronoi heart. as you can see pics.

Step 6: Filling Epoxy

now we have voronoi heart with led. We are putting it in a box. This box will be a mold. Than we will split them for epoxy.

NOT: please wait min 2 days for drying epoxy. This is important

Step 7: Split and Sand

we are splitting and sanding now. As you can see in pics.

Step 8: Again Epoxy

Step 9: Electronic Connections

Connection is simple. Just need a few materials.

Step 10: Results

And results.

Thanks For Patience...

    I made something similar for my wife for Valentine's Day. I wrote an Arduino sketch that pulses the heart in a realistic way -- I grabbed real data from an EKG! Let me know if you want to try it out on yours.

    Hehe : D yes you can make it with EKG or pulse sensor.

    I believe when working with epoxy, if you hold the cup higher and pour in a very thin stream, you will pop and break most of the bubbles in the epoxy from the mixing process. That would likely give you a clearer cast. Of course if you prefer the bubbles as an effect, what you have is excellent.

    Question 22 days ago

    What is the purpose of step 8? Is it to have a clear finish without having to use finer and finer sandpaper?
    For clarity, moreover, I'd invert steps 4 (Making epoxy) and 5 (Assemble Voronoi Heart and Led), since you have a limited time to pour the epoxy (and so it is better to have the heart already assembled before mixing the epoxy)

    Hi frarugi87, about 8 , yes most clear. if you have better solution, share with us. I can try it.
    and second issue. This is a not a rule. You change steps. :D
    Thanks for comment

    Very cool, Congrats! Fun idea is to use Pulse Sensor with arduino for showing in live your heart :)
