first, i am not a lawyer. so what i say has no authority. Patent infringement is a civil issue, not a criminal issue. So, unless someone actively seeks you out and decides to take you to court, it is a non-issue.For this spinner, I change the license to "attribution - share alike". So, as for my design, you can print and sell if you want. i took away the "non-commercial" part.

This instructable is great and I plan on making this technological artwork thanks to you. I had a feeling warm white was chosen for nicer ambient lighting. Thank you for the clear explanation on color choice. I did not want to purchase the led strip till i got your response. Now I can.
Hi. About the LED strip color temperature choice, why warm white? Why not "cool white" or "daylight white" LEDs? We replaced all our warm white bulbs at work with 5000K daylight white bulbs because we needed a brighter environment. You mentioned you wish the light could be brighter. Would a change in color temperature fix that problem?

An RGB LED 1 watt. I believe it was Cree. I was trying to make purple, so I only drove the red and blue LEDs. I used different resistors for each LED so that I could get the shade of purple I wanted. I don't think they make them anymore. Most LEDs we use now are 3 watt (Luxeon Rebel, and Cree XP 2).
I agree with MathJoker. A Nano Biscotte cost me $67. Now there is even a less expensive one, for $57 (I have not tried it). I have fried two Hasbro boards even when I was supplying power from 3 AA batteries. I believe the reason why they fried was because of the current draw of the LED for the blade. The mid-range sound boards (from $50-$80) are better at handling voltage and current.

Actually, some of the boards have a flash on clash function. It would be possible to connect the flash output to a motor driver instead of an LED so instead of flashing when the blade hits something, the lightsaber vibrates.

Yes, i don't see why not. If you can give me the cutting width of the laser, I can make a gcode file.

The blade looks nice and bright. Can you share a picture of the hilt? What kind of wiring scheme are you asking about?
Can you give a link for the clear PVC pipe you have in mind. I am not familiar with it. I have banged around schedule 40 pvc pipes before. The plastic does have a good bit of flex. However, hit it hard enough and it does shatter. Now, if you are just building a show piece instead of a dueling saber, that should be fine. But if you plan to duel with the blade, polycarbonate is the only safe clear material that I know of.

The ID of a 1" PC battle blade is 3/4" or 19.05mm. can you provide link for fiber optic that would properly fit into a blade and we would want to avoid the fiber optic rattling inside the blade.
Yes, i have often thought about using side emitting fibre optics, but cost has been prohibitive in the past. perhaps prices have gone down since last I checked. Can you provide a link to a source of side emitting fibre optics that is the right diameter?
Hi. It depends on what tools you have available to you and what materials you plan to use.Aluminum would be the most difficult. I start with a 3/8th inch drill bit and drill all the way through round stock. This can be done on a lathe or a drill press. I then increase to half inch then 3/4 inch. I stop there if using a thin 3/4 inch blade. But most people (me included) prefer 1 inch blades. So I attach the round stock to the lathe and use a boring bar to increase the hole to 1 inch diameter. This is because drill bits beyond 3/4 inch tend to be expensive and hard to find.If you don't have the tools above, buy a blade holder for $25. Less headache and cheaper than DIY.
Wonderful work. I love the color. Thank you so much for sharing.
I poured it on parts (the emitter) and lit it. created burnt carbon residue.

That is wonderful. thank you for sharing. Does the painters tape wear out? the tennis racket tape wore out in about a year.
Yes, it is possible. I have made many blade holders of my own. The only thing is, i have had access to a lathe and other heavy duty type tools. It would also be possible to 3D print a blade holder, but again, you have to be fortunate enough to have access to that.The issue is that most blades are 1" diameter and boring out a hole that size accurately and properly into metal is not easy. Perhaps if you make your blade holder out of some sort of high density plastic light Delrin or HDPE rod...
