Hi I designed a simple led strip for my Anycubic i3 Mega, should fit any printer with a similar chassis. Print 6 x strips for lighting all round the gantry as in the photo's. I also included small tabs so that the led strip can be secured by cable ties or heatshrink just for extra security.

Great idea but too little info, what LED strips are you using, how did you attach to the printer?

Hey sundance2017,

I think he has connected the LEDs to a separate power supply.
This has nothing to do with the power adapter of the 3d printer.
But if you want to connect the LEDs to the 3D printer, it will certainly go.
For this you have to look at the connections at your power supply.
If a V+ and a V- connection is still free, you can connect the LEDs there.

It is important to note that these are 12V LEDs.

Here is a picture:


Hi the strips are a press fit on the printer carrage and the led strips are standard led strip that just sticks on. Hope that helps.

Hi toothless7 I am using a small 12v power supply.

From where are you getting the power for the led strip?
