What am I missing? the mount does not seems to be correct. I downloaded the separate .STL file as well as the .zip file. It's only 115Kb and when I print it - it only prints one circle with a dot in the middle.....?

I found the bracket had to be scaled up 10 times, and the holes for standard size LEDs were ever so tight so opened them up with a drill bit. Then attached all the LEDs and the two wires to the ends and a centre tap point, which runs in the peripheral slot, with hot melt glue. Similarly the two holes that go to the extruder mount were tight on the socket head bolts, too tight for a push fit, so ended up using a tie-wrap to secure the bracket.

I used 8 white LEDs, connected in two sets of 4 each in series (no dropping resistors required) to the main incoming supply (15v?) to the controller board. So they come on as soon as power is connected, thereby nicely indicating power is on.

Overall a nice addition, might have been better with diffused LEDs instead of clear, as I have a centre dark spot.

please feel free to post a picture of you're print :)

wich resistors did you use for the lights? and throug what do you get power?
