Thanks so much for this. Waiting for my LEDs in the mail. Going to get this printed in the mean time. Will let you know how it goes!

If you don't mind me asking, how did you go about cutting the acrylic? I know you can score and snap a straight line but what about the rounded corners?

I just used a handheld jigsaw with a fine toothed metal cutting blade and cut off the corner of the acrylic sheet to get the correct length and width needed (so just two cuts). Then to match the rounded profile I bolted the acrylic piece onto the 3D printed body (after drilling the mounting holes into the acrylic), and sanded the square edges of the acrylic down to match the PLA body with standard sandpaper.

You could just as easily cut the acrylic with a basic hacksaw with a metal cutting blade to cut as well. I've never tried to score and snap acrylic, but I have done that with glass and I can never get it to snap cleanly. Even more so, you can use the saw to rough cut the acrylic, and then sand down all four side of the acrylic to match the profile of the PLA body - whatever works best for you, it'll look good.

Thank you very much. One other question, does this have space to mount the arduino inside? I don't see the arduino in your pictures.

Nope, this design is meant to have you run the wires out the back to an external arduino board. In my setup, I have a single arduino board that controls both the shift indicator LEDs, as well as, a gear indicator. For my setup, I printed RamjetX's gear indicator case and that has a space for the arduino board in it (so the wires from my shift indicator run into that case and connect to the arduino board there).

hi i got two WS2812 5050 RGB LEDs and it fit perfectly in the case but my holes is getting to narrow for my outside led's. anyone got this problem and know how mutch i should scale it up to make the holes aligne?

How much of the outer LED's are covered? I had to file down the each edge of the LED board where they met in the middle of the case to better align the holes (I think when they make these the cut line on the boards is different on each, so they will all sit differently).

about 50% of the LED's are covered on the outside, in the middle they are perfect. but ill scale it up until they fit good enough, its just a few milimeters:) maybe they have changed the layout on the LED's in the production or i baught some ''low'' quality led's.

edit: scaled the x axis to 127 mm and it fits perfect with all LED's

Awesome, glad to hear you got it to work and thanks for sharing info!

How do i download the file sorry new to all this stuff

You can download by selecting the "download all" blue button on the top right, otherwise, you can download individual files from the "Thing Files" tab and then select which STL file you want to download.

Thanks a lot for this case.
You saved me a lot of time and work.
Think I will remix it with an USBD-480 case, if you have no objections.

Stoked it helped! And no problem at all, remix away!

hi there love the case its ace could you put the file on for the stand please

Updated description to include links to mounts. Thanks!
