I Reckoned a New Thread was called for because this is going to be a work in progress and if I remember I'll take some Pics onlong the way plus I can only start to print the New Project when I get a delivery of black filament. (Lots)
Here is a Pic of the excisting column which has to be removed to make way for the new structure, this is what the first new section will look like (OpenScad Pic), it will be one of 8 pieces needed to complete the centre column.

Taking 110 hour to print each piece 145 x 300 mm and use 1.6 Kg of filament per section at 40% fill, I'll then add quite a few decretive pieces to the outside of the column later, that will keep the printing straight forward with less indivudual pieces to worry about.

I've learned quite a bit so I’m very confident it won’t blow down, no matter how bad the weather gets, the original design was flawed from the start and I refused to give in, and kept on adding new reinforced pieces, but the wind had the final say.

It will take time to dig out the hole and piece it all together, but I'm in no hurry, so I'm prepared for every eventully because I know how the finished 5 lamps will look, this lamp will be the best and final one..

My bad. I was looking at the grassy picture thinking of Spring. :love

At that size you may need a bigger Buddha. :)

Newbie question for @The Hat :
How do you join the different sections of the column (or whatever part) ?. Do you glue them and that's it or there're further 'implementations' to be done ?.
( In case you have a secret recipe which can't be disclosed here, I'll understand.. ;))

Ah ha, I’m glad you asked that, I used to use an overlap join and slip that over the section underneath, and then slide a small tube inside both to get a good seal join..
Capture24.JPG here's a piece of the older lamp with the overlap.. click to enlarge

Use too, but I won’t be doing that on the new lamp, because I found that join to be flawed and weak..

I’ll continue however to use a similar method to cover the two joins, but there will be no need for a strong join because the centre metal pole will be taking all of the tension..

Capture.20.JPG this collar is only 88mm high to cover the join..
That’s where I went wrong last time.. The wind found the weakest point..

Strong mortar and strong weld.

Am I reading this correctly? 110 hours per section? Or should I read 1/10 hour each?
