    Depending on the implementation, the "switch" could be as simple as anything that is conductive and isolated.

    As a note, the issue isn't a lack of standardization, the issue is unscrupulous sellers and manufacturers. It doesn't take much to recognize obvious false claims, and the false claims are almost...

    Designing/printing chassis is easy enough with some patience. The first thing I ever designed was a chassis. As FJK says, calipers are your friend. I'm certain someone has made such a thing, but I...

    I'm not really sure what mystery you are trying to solve, I made a video about this almost 4 years ago and others have chimed in since then.

    You will also risk blowing out you pixels at that voltage. They are all sold as 5v, but optimal output is really around 3.7-4v

    You can power the blades independently, common ground, and use the same data signal. You blades will be identical in this case, but there is no reason you can't do it. You would need to power the...

    I've been building pixel sabers (and other things) with 10 amp batteries for several years without issue. 10amp battery is fine, assuming it is a real, quality battery.

    The strips are in GRB order, older ws2811 style and 5mm type LEDs are RGB. I'm not sure how Plecter handles it, but that is the way it is.

    if it's been damaged enough to pull off the resistors I'd be concerned that the pads have been damaged or ripped off the substrate. The damage does some somewhat odd, the resistors should be the...

    The closer a hole is to perpendicular to the surface the easier it will be to drill. Any similar design will have the same issue, drilling at an oblique angle is not going to be easy.

    I'm going to have to agree with FJK here. If you want a nice clean look, you just don't have the tools.

    If you have an old computer ATX supply you can use the 5v on that, or any AC-DC supply that can output 5V.

    I'm not sure why you chose to run this at 7.4v but there is a good chance you fried the...
