I built this stand to house five LEDs for illuminating the Geek Campfire thing. It has sufficient internal space to house the battery module, switch, and wiring from five electronic-candles I bought at a local Target store.

Here's a video of the animated fire at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o26lrV07X54

More pictures and explanation on my blog at http://mysd300.blogspot.com/2011/05/animated-geek-campfire.html


Build the Geek Campfire thing and this Geek Campfire Stand, rip some LEDs from 5 electronic candles, and put them together to build a functioning campfire. Keep one of them intact to hold the battery and power switch.

The base is oriented to build upside-down, diagonally positioned across a 96mm x 96mm area that should fit on most build platforms. If you have a smooth platform (eg: acrylic) then build without a raft for smoothest finish.

I bought a package of six Flameless LED Tealights at a local Target, soldered 4 of the LEDs together in parallel, and attached them to a 5th module that still had the battery and switch.
