We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a simple spot that takes up to 7 (5mm) LEDs. The spot has four connectors that allow assembling larger light installations.
We are using these spots as part of our mikrokopter project since three of them arew below 40g
1) Print :-)
2) Parts and holes are tight-fit. Depending on your print-settings some sanding might be needed.
2) Use a LED calculator (http://www.spaceflakes.de/led-rechner/) to find the needed layout and resitors. In our case (12V) we are using three parallel lines (3,2,2 with 100, 220, 220 Ohm resistors).
3) To connect spots there are two different ways:
Cut 3mm threads in each of the connector holes an use a threaded M3 rod to connect. These rods can be printed as well (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31363)
4) To change the size or number of LEDs, simply design/print a different plate.

So what's this mean?
We're sure MORP would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
