Hi there. I found your design a few weeks ago and adapted it so fit my needs (bigger segment, a few more leds, no decimal point etc). Do you have any tips on soldering the leds? (I have ws2812b on a little round pcb). Also: What wire thickness did you use? Solid core wire? etc. Thanks in advance ;)

Hey there,

Wire thickness is a good question, I just used strands of flatband cable anything around AWG24 and higher should be good enough (solid core not needed, I think) , but also depends on how many LEDs / displays you'll power over the line. depending on the board you might have to work on the openings for the leds, I didn't factor in the capacitors on my board.
