Fun string lights to show off the RGB functionality of neopixels! The star lights have been created to house Adafruit's Diffused 8 mm Through-Hole LED NeoPixel. However, the LEDs don't need to be neopixels. They can be any type of LED as long as its 8 mm through hole.
I used glow filament so my stars would glow after being turned off. You can probably use whichever filament you want though I would assume pigmented filament will make the lights dimmer.
As you can see from the pictures, infill does shine through so be sure to choose a nice looking infill (honeycomb, triangle, cat-fill, doughnut-fill) or print at 100%.
Caution: There are sharp edges unsuitable for children. Be sure to sand down the points of the star as they are quite sharp.
Neopixels can't light up on their own. They need to be attached to a controller to work. The easiest way to get started is to use an arduino controller.
More about that here: Neopixel Uberguide!
Some soldering is required to get everything hooked up. You will probably read up on everything you need to know in the uberguide. However, please look at this pinout explanation so you don't fry your board or your neopixel.
