Instructions

This bracket uses those LED light strips that have an adhesive backing to them. It basically, makes a smooth flat spot near the print head so the adhesive strip of light would have something flat and smooth to stick on. The LEDs that I used could be cut into strips of 3 and fit onto the track so that it'll use three sets of them for a total of 9 LEDs. They'll actually hang over the edge slightly in a few places. For those spots, you'll need to bend the light strip and stick it to the edge where it hangs over. Next, you'll need to wire them all together. Just solder "+" to "+" and "-" to "-" on all of them and then attach them to your power source. Also, *it is very important* to cover your solder connections with something like RTV silicon so that you don't short out the terminals when using metal tools to pick plastic strings off the print head *(which I did within 5 minute of installing it)*.

This part has a tight fit so make sure the arms don't rub against the little corners of the platform that stick out.

Edit: Here is light strip that I used. amzn.com/B002QQ48TK
