Upgrade your ride with NeoPixel LEDs.

In this project we're upgrading our long board with more neopixels, making a very bright and safe summer night ride!

The 3d printed parts are designed to house the electronics and can be customized to fit your project. You can get the parts for this build on adafruit.com.

NeoPixel LEDs strips are mounted to the bottom of the board with 3d printed clips and can secured with adhesives or screws.

The components are secured to the enclosure and mounted to the board with a 3d printed sliding lock adapter.

NeoPixel rings make a great set of headlights that can be mounted to the trucks with a 3d printed adapter.

Find out how to assemble and build this project by checking out the guide on The Adafruit Learning System.

Upgrading your ride with LEDs makes an awesome summer project that'll keep you lit while you cruse in style.

it won't let me download the files what should i do

I've done this complete build: One thing I'd recommend is print the "neoring_holder" in ninjaflex, nylon, or not at all (just skip the rings entirely): I printed it in PLA (4 shells, 100% infill) : After the very first ride the vibrations broke one of the rings off, and literally snapped the little small cables inside: Lot of soldering down the tube :(
Note, I also had a really hard time getting the neorings in the holder, and then the diffusers on the rings: Even though I printed in PLA which has little shrinkage, the tolerances seem too tight by default, I broke a pair just trying to install.
