Add lights to your Prusa for $5
« on: April 18, 2019, 01:52:13 PM »
Decided to create the mod as it's a cheap option for adding LED lights to your Prusa..

This little 24v strip can be purchased off eBay for less than $5.  Print two of the little clips and just attach it on. :-)













To fit you will need to do the following

1. Purchase the 24v LED strip.. do a search on eBay for 'car auto roof reading light lamp 24v 8w' and you should be able to find one.

2. Extend the power wires by about 20cm

3. Feed the wires in and connect them to the PSU 24v connectors on the board

4. Click the light in place on the freshly printed clips and enjoy :-) 

The clips have been designed to just snap in place, no fixings are required. Another bonus is this strip also has an on / off button so you can easily toggle this additional mod.
