    Built another photonblade today with trimmed ws2812b, about one and a half mm each side, very nice results here, definitely a touch brighter than the 3535s, not mindblowing, but still a noticeable...

    I know itīs a bit brighter but I didnt accomplish to let these side shadows flow out completely into evenness on to a point where I had to put so much material more that it was dimmer than the 3535s....

    Well thats definitely sure. But what Forgetful Jedi Knight and I mean is more like what happens from two same-coloured LEDs on two more

    Well this is exactly what I thought too before I started building it. But there are certain limitations if it comes to real brightness recognized by a human eye. The first thing is the human eye...

    v1 is for about 9amps, v2 can carry about 15amps if you try to build blades with 3 or 4 strips. But you will need bigger wirings (22gauge at least, negative I would take 20 gauge) and a battery that...

    well, for demonstration purpose and that you see yourself what I mean I decided to give you some images of my two best blades. First one is the photon blade, first ignition with blue only, second...

    I donīt think I am allowed to do that here but I am sure you will find some if you type SK6812 MINI 3535 RGB in aliexpress or sth similar. Only 144 pixels per meter of course, not less..

    The skinny strips are definitely as bright if you diffuse them correctly. I highly recommend the sk 6812s instead of the WS2812bs, you will never get rid of this shadow completely without diffusing...
  10. Led-Strip Blade with 4 Strips, Diffusion, comparison, general review

    Hey guys,
    some weeks are over now since I started my blade-building projects. It was lots of fun, but of course partly horribly frustrating to some degree too, I tried alot of diffusion materials,...

    Yes of course, 144 as they are on the strips themselves. Everything works fine, including any colourmixing, just ignition and retraction effect fails for no apparent reason

    well, today my adafruits arrived and unfortunately the issue still lasts on. I wired them up to a NBV4 of a friend of mine and nearly everthing worked fine. Also tried to use a brand new SD-Card to...

    Well, unfortunately problems are continueing..:(

    My double strip only lights up red instead of blue (1st bank) or green (2nd bank). On the bank for green the red is flickering quite strong. There...

    I checked everything twice. At least i found the solution. Was quite simple but hard to recognize. My data on the SD-Card was all in a Folder called Prizm5. As soon as i deleted the folder and...
