Because my room is really dark, I want some LEDs in my Ultimaker.
With this little parts you can mount a 5mm LED on the printerhead without loosing build volume in Cura Project Planner.
Also you can vary the angel to 90° for customise your light


Print A and B, mount it with a M3x12mm Screw and fix it with an M3 nut.
Then push it on the M3 thread rod and tighten it with another M3 hex nut.

If you want a cool look, mount an RGB LED with ~2000mcd light strength each channel and control it via the firmware (eg. RGB LED example on Arduino and select every Layer an other color)

When DHL arrives with the LEDs I'll upload a new Picture.
