    So, I'm sitting here surrounded by my blade and I've come across a query.

    As I'm using the NBv4, I don't have an Aux function, as you've kindly pointed out. So, I will still need the PEX for the...

    Ah, so that can happen? I thought I may have burnt the first I used, so I binned it, the second, I did test prior to soldering, and it registered, so I may have to try again.

    I'm mainly concerned...

    So, I've just done some more work.

    The Accent LED;

    The switch (without Aux ha!)

    Ah.

    Okay, well that is disappointing, but saves on some soldering I guess :)

    I was following the manual for Dimitri Shtok's MK-NB chassis, which never says that this wiring won't work with an...

    Ah, my mistake, I confused myself, there are two GND's, but they lead to the same SIP.

    So, Aux to board positive and Act to board Act and GND to board negative? Reading the NB manual is a little...
  6. Three pin switch (Aux, Act & Gnd) is what I have...

    Three pin switch (Aux, Act & Gnd) is what I have to wire up, am I correct in thinking it should be Act to Act on Board (obviously) and both Aux & Gnd to the Negative on Board?
  7. Perfect thank you. I'm not even sure my wiring...

    Perfect thank you. I'm not even sure my wiring will work lol. But that answers a big question of mine. I really appreciate all your advice and help.
  8. I've started to wire some of the components...

    I've started to wire some of the components individually, before connecting to the board, but I wanted to ask the community if they know of any posts/forums that discuss which wires/connections can...
  9. Yes, I did watch both of those videos prior to...

    Yes, I did watch both of those videos prior to doing my work, but both the Shtok connector manual showed 2 pos/neg wires, so I stuck to that, and then I just decided to stick with 2 for data as well....

    So, got some more wiring done, here you can see my massacre of the pad lol

    Not the smoothest soldering you'll ever see.

  11. I wasn't going to throw them out. I will...

    I wasn't going to throw them out. I will definitely repurpose them in some fashion, even just to use as a test blade build.

    After toying/scraping the pad I've managed to get a good joint of...
  12. I was considering that, and then trimming down...

    I was considering that, and then trimming down the tube etc. but the pads between each LED look tiny. So, I was reluctant about that course of action, however, I was going to keep the strips and...
  13. Well I'm not going to be progressing any further...

    Well I'm not going to be progressing any further for the moment. Just tried to snip the wires on my Neo-strips and the pre-soldered wires pulled straight off. tried to resolder (I'm still learning)...

    I'm in the middle of putting my blade together, and I realised I'm missing a major part of my diagram, the PEX

    So, this should now be complete, although, the amount of wires is starting to get...

    I believe the manual is up to date, and there is no "on board power extender" it still states in the manual "3 channel (2 onboard drivers, one remote Power Extender)" which suggests you need a remote...

    So, I didn't notice them initially, and my magnifying glass isn't strong enough to read what value they have, but there are two resistors soldered to the mini RGB driver board. There is a chip on...
  17. Awesome, thank you again. I'll ask him, although...

    Awesome, thank you again. I'll ask him, although I've looked online at a lot of the string-lights people have made with the same setup and the LED is wired so close to the board, i don't think they...

    I've just pinched this image to show how it should be setup, so I guess I don't need the Dyna-Ohm, but 33R instead, that seems a little low.

    I will do the Maths though, which I'll probably give it...

    Ah, now that is a good point, I had the Dyna-Ohm resistor on the dataline, (that's cobbled together through the NB manual examples and other online diagrams)

    Should I put that on the positive...

    Thank you, Tom, you've been a great help. I'm glad to get some feedback on my diagram and prospective build. I'm happy that there aren't any screaming errors :) (or too many lol)

    I am daunted with...
  21. Hi Tom, thanks for your advice. I actually took...

    Hi Tom, thanks for your advice. I actually took the wiring suggestion from Dimitri's NXPL connector manual, where he suggests using 26 AWG for dual strips in parallel. Now, there is a high chance...

    I'm presuming that no one can see an obvious failing in my schematic? I will admit I'm shocked but pleased :)

    I didn't realize I hadn't bought any 470ohm's so I'm waiting on those, and hopefully,...
  23. My Roman Prop - SCW - Nano Biscotte NB v4 - NeoPixel Build

    Good Afternoon All, :D

    Thank you for taking a moment to cast your eye over what I have to offer.

    As the Title suggests, I am endeavouring to put together the following:
