Hello. I am trying to build a custom structure to house my project I currently call the “Rave Sign”. It is a light up sign that shows a variety of images or scrolling text. It is basically eight Flexible 16x16 NeoPixel RGB LED Matrix (Flexible 16x16 NeoPixel RGB LED Matrix : ID 2547 : $94.95 : Adafruit Industries, Unique & fun DIY electronics and kits) controlled by a ESP8266 . I’d like to build a structure to hold the NeoPixel matrices and I like the idea of wrapping them around into a circle, so I created this with OnShape: Onshape
This is the first thing I’ve ever created in OnShape, so there are probably all sorts of issues with it, but the idea is to slide the NeoPixels into the slots on the outside and have the wires go through the holes towards the middle. In the center I would attach a broom stick or something similar to hold it up. I’m not really sure what type of material to make it out of, but something relatively light would be ideal.
I’m not currently a member of VHS, but I’m thinking of singing up so I can get this and other projects going again. Thanks.
