Revision 18-APR-17: removed down level LED housings and renamed files with shorter names to reduce confusion.
Revision 11-NOV-16: removed layer gap in part "led_bar_light_prusa_flex-mount_v2"
Addtion 31-MAR-16: added rod mounts that snap onto M8 threaded rods (the original ones snap onto an M10 rod .. make sure you print the ones you need!!!).
Revision 09-MAR-16: added multiple mounting location bosses on LED bar light housing ... choose which one works best for you!
LED Bar Light snaps onto M8 or M10 threaded rods (pick the rod mount STL file for your size metric threaded rods)
Flexible adjustable positioning (print multiple flex connector pieces for your desired flex neck length)
Print several of the wire cable management clips, to neatly organize your wiring.
Note: the LED light bar housings have 3 optional attachment locations, pick the one that works best for your printer.
The LED light bars used, are VERY bright, use 12V provided by most 3D Printer power supplies, and are VERY inexpensive, less than $6 per pair with shipping!.

Notice in one of my photos .. using a sheet of paper, now you can use your 3D Printer as a photo studio! ... to better show off the parts you print!
Good lighting makes much better timelapse videos .. here is a OctoPi Raspberry Pi example video: https://youtu.be/1Q_HYHBMtgM
