22-MAR-18: added clip for mounting Logitech C525 webcam on top of the light bar assembly. Added double wire retaining clip for use with webcam configuration. C525 camera disassembly required - remove orange stickers on mount side, exposing screws, save silver screw to reuse for mounting camera to the 3D Printed mounting clip here... those removed orange stickers can be reused, afix them to the printed mounting clip as shown in photo here.
Revision 19-May-18: added adjustable friction features to ball / socket joints, and a print bed adhesion pad. The "ties" added across the socket slot features can be cut one by one to reduce the ball/socket friction fit, adjust until free but still tight (it will loosen some with time). Print these parts without any support material.
Revision 19-JAN-18: added magnetic mount base option (10x3mm neodymium magnets), and a generic LED bar housing which can be used left or right side, also accommodates slightly larger LED bars (last ones I ordered from same supplier were slightly longer and wider). This housing fits LED bars up to 207.5 by 20.9mm.
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!
Do you wish to add a programmable dimmer control?? Consider the designing included in my thing here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2230243
This thing dimmer, is comprised of the components below, and is easily programmed for PWM dimming, on/off, timeout, .. endless behaviors are possible ...
