MAKE SURE TO SET TO A SCALE OF 10X
I do not know why my STL files are always 10X too small...
I designed this LED ring to hold 6x 5mm LEDs for mounting around a printer's extruder. It really helps make the print easier to see. Mounting options are up to you, I provided a hole on both sides of the ring. Mine is made of PLA, and did not have any thermal concerns being near the extruder. I have also provided a wiring diagram for those who need it. Mine is using wide angle "stubby" leds and a 220 ohm resistor. I have my fan and LEDs wired directly to the power supply, but the leds can be connected to the fan header, and will change brightness with the fan speed. Please comment if you want one custom made, I would be glad to help.
