Intro: Crystal LED (Neopixel) DIY
Follow this instruction and make your own LED (Neopixel : WS2812B) light!
Welcome again. This tutorial gives you a simple way to make the beautiful light in few hours. All you need is just to download 3d cad file I shared and print them by using 3d printer. It is okay if you don't code. In this tutorial, we are going to use a ready-to-go LED controller and a remote controller.
Step 1: Modeling With TinkerCad and Fusion360
Just in case you want to know, my wife designed this model by using TinkerCad and Fusion360. She made some blocks and cut some edges. Grouping them and exported the modeling files into Fusion360. Fusion360 has a function called "Shell" which is suit for this project. we need to put LED light into the model.
Step 2: 3D Printing
We uploaded the files on Thingiverse which is the biggest platform for 3d files.
Please don't forget give "like" so that many people can see the files!
If you don't have a 3d printer, you can find open making spaces such as Fablab or so. it takes approximately 4 hours.
Step 3: Preparing Materials
Step 4: Assembly
Plug the controller terminal with LED's terminal.
Step 5: Remote Controller
This is a wireless remote controller for the LED controller. It gives signal through RF.
Step 6: Attaching LED on the Bottom
Put the LED ring on the bottom frame. I used Blu-Tack to secure LED.
Step 7: Test
Let's test it. it looks wonderful!
Step 8: Power
You can also give power to the LED with usb power bank.
Step 9: Next Time...
Next episode, I will upload how to control the light with Google Assistant / Google Home.
