    Moodlite.co.uk - Wall Mountable LED Tiles

    Sorry, I printed them on a few printers.. a JGAurora A5, Lmystar E10 (Ender3/CR10 type clone) and a Prusa mk3.

    Sure, it's up to you how many LEDs you install. The in the new code that's been released you can input howany LEDs you are using in each tile. :-)

    The bottom tile I posted is actually the latest version I've done where the wire just loops around. I've included some images below which should help you :-) So, start with the male end and push it through the hole in the tile. Put the wires through the slot and pull the connector back. This should locate it in its hole. Like the first photo below. It should be sticking out and not flush. then work around the tile slotting in the LED's in to each corner. Once done, then exit onto the back again and choose which side you want to exit with the female connector, as the photo. :-) Hope this helps :-) Thanks, Steve

    Hi, sorry no the LED's come on a single strip that's 1 meter long. You get 60 leds off a single strip. Here are a couple of links...Amazon UK link - https://amzn.to/2RcFoYbAmazon USA link - https://amzn.to/2Sr4q2VTo make a tile you then need 3 LED's each tile. To join these LED's up I used a 1-meter servo extension cable which was cut up to make the wiring loom. I have just bought some more from China and they are costing about £5, so about half price but longer wait times.I hope this helps :-) many thanks for your interest in this project.Steve

    Hi Khill32, Thanks for the nice comments. If you check out the inventor renders it's quite straightforward for the colours. I used orange / white and black filament made by Ziro off Amazon which I've found to be really good. The silver came with my Prusa. It's all PLA, printed at 0.15 height at 215 degrees / 60 degrees. I've worked on a tolerance of 0.2mm which seems to work out well between parts. Yes, I posted the BB-8 a few weeks ago on Thingiverse, then came across this site and decided to post it on here to and thought I would give the plastics competition a go, never entered one before. :-) It's really easy to print. I designed it so you don't need support at all :-) You just load it up and click print. My BB-9 is finished now, just need to find time to compile all the bits ...

My BB-9 is finished now, just need to find time to compile all the bits up and correctly rotate them all before posting him. Although I might change his design a little, the parts are really very small and I ended up getting superglue everywhere... :-) Included a photo below of both of them for you. It was a great model to design as I hadn't done many things on curved surfaces and making different workplanes. Ended up scratching my head many times :-) Got there in the end mind. Let me know if you need any more photos. As for where to place the side panels and what rotation, no idea.. lol I just went with the flow. I've tried to draw them somewhat similar to BB-8 (well the radio alarm clock my son has). Thanks, Steve

    Thanks Ashwini. I loved doing it. My BB-9 is now completed too :-) I just need to find time to write it up and post it.Steve
