Step 1: Design the Product
For this item it requires the following parts
a) 2 x ends 3D printed
b) 3D printed ceiling mount for bayonet socket and bracket
c) 3 x timber slats from timber blinds
d) 12volt LED strip lights in aluminium extrusion
Step 2: Take Measurements and Draw the Design
Download the parts and print or send to a local 3D printer. http://www.3Dhubs.com
I've chosen white but any colour would look good.
Step 3: Assemble the Items and Wire Up the Parts
The transformer can be wired to the bayonet plug on the mains(primary side) and the LED to the 12volt (secondary side).
The LEDs in this case are DC and whilst the transformer is AC output the LEDs only conduct in the one direction being diodes so work fine. The loading for the transformer requires a minimum of 10watts and maximum of 40watts so ensure the strip lighting does not under or overload the transfomer.
Glue in bracket/bayonet bracket.
Step 4: Connect Up and Enjoy
Switch on and off.
