At least 100+ 3D printed moon lamp stores on the market above from 2015 to 2020.
The appearance of the moon varies greatly from clear to fuzzy.
90% of those moon lamp is poor.
And less than 10% is good, especially the custom moon lamp, pretty good moon lamp is less than 5%.
Here’s a quick review of the Moonlight’s surface texture.
Good Moon Lamp
A good moonlight textures are clear, bright, and realistic.
Good Style 1 (The best Moon Lamp)
The front texture of the moon lamp is very clear, the simulation is very high and very fine, can see the real details of the moon crater, crater, ridge and so on.
The Lunar rough patches clearly visible.
Volcanic bump clearly visible.
Small charging port.
Seamless construction, and only small paste-on section at the bottom.
Good Style 2 (Normal Moon Lamp)
Clearly textured surface of the moonlight
The charging port is a little bigger than the best moon lamp.
The bottom bonding section is much larger than the best moon lamp.
Summary of good moon lamp
The style 1 is the best moon lamp. It looks clearer and more realistic.
How to know it’s style 1 or style 2 Moon lamp?
Tips: view the bottom of the moon lamp.
- charging port
The best style charging holes are smaller than normal.
- bottom bonding section
The best ones are small. The normal ones are big.
- Accessories (Shape of the charging cable plug inlet)
Generally, the best ones use a straight, normal use L-shaped
Poor moon lamp
There are very many poor moon lamps online. It’s mostly a fake moon lamp.
When you buy a moon lamp, try to avoid the bad ones you get.
Let’s take a look at what a bad moon lamp looks like.
Poor moon lamp (1)
Front side and back side of the moon lamp
Poor moon lamp (2)
The surface texture of the moon is gone.
Poor moon lamp (3)
The bonding marks at the bottom of the moon are very obvious.
It doesn’t look good.
Poor moon lamp (4)
The moon texture details don’t print well.
Poor moon lamp (5)
Poor moon lamp (6)
Poor moon lamp (7)
Poor moon lamp (8)
Poor custom moon lamp (9)
Poorly textured moon surface.
Poor custom moon lamp (10)
Moon lamp is so cool and amazing, no matter it is a good or a bad moon lamp.
But if you have 2 different moon lamp.
Put them together and compare them.
You’ll notice a very distinct difference between a good and a poor moon lamp.
A good moon lamp has a very clear texture, just like a real moon.
The poor moon lamp is blurred, the more you look at it, the less it looks like the moon.
But the online stores, for most of them, are poor moonlights (at least 90%).
So, you should try to avoid buying a poor moon lamp.
The following 3 things affect the texture of the moon.
- 3D data and programming of the moon.
- Accuracy of 3d printer
- Technical capabilities of engineers.
- Material selection and time control for printing.
Note: If it’s a custom moon lamp, the text/image treatment will also have an effect
How to know if it is the best moon lamp?
Like it was mentioned earlier.
- Clear surface texture of the moon (most important)
- charging port
- Bottom bond size
- The shape of the charging cable
In the end, I hope you get a good moon lamp.
