    I ordered some on Ali Express, however I am still waiting for it to get here.

  • Fiber Optic LED Lamp

    Thank you Joshua for the kind words. Good luck with your journey and post pictures once you have them. I am currently printing the wall panels for the wayy array, need 7 of them at 13 hours a print, it will be a while :)

    Fiber Optic LED Lamp

    I had posted this in the comments before I realized I could add it here. Just finished initial construction of my version of this project. I basically redesigned the whole thing to use parts that I had. Changes between mine and the one posted. Mine is a Hexagon shape which has 7 LEDs per side (42 total LEDs). The base has 5 tactile push-buttons with the actuators being printed in "Transparent" PETG. I added a LED Strip inside the base to illuminate the actuators, so they can dynamically change themselves. I haven't really thought through what "UI" I am going to implement. Code is now the biggest thing I need to work on.Next phase which will take me considerably longer is to make a wall of 7 of these honeycomb panels :) Thanks to andrei.erdei for the original c…

    I love this project thanks for sharing it! I am totally going to built my own take on this concept. I am going to do Hexagons. first a lamp to see how the build goes then maybe a wall. I've started drawing it up in CAD (see below potential Wall arrangement, still work in progress). I have a couple of questions for you as I begin to explore this from a design standpoint. In this and the Wall, what method did you use for deciding what to connect to what (on the fibers)? or did you just do random or play around with different arrangements until you got something that looked good. Also, on the lamp I noticed you staggered the depth of the fiber apertures, something you did not do on the wall. Was there any particular reason (beyond aesthetics) that you made this change? Were you run…

Also, on the lamp I noticed you staggered the depth of the fiber apertures, something you did not do on the wall. Was there any particular reason (beyond aesthetics) that you made this change? Were you running into crowding of fibers and did the offset help with that?Again, absolutely brilliant idea (pun intended). Cheers!Below CAD exploration of a wall idea, would probably mount it to a circular board, I haven't decided if the backing board should be bright or black would be best. I can think of reasons for both. Playing around with backgrounds on the lamp might help me decide.

    I could split it up in Netfabb Basic, however I don't want to host it and step on the original posters toes.
