    Ah well, sadly I've been waiting on parts to arrive for a couple of months :(

    I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone submitted!

    You are better off running your blade at around 80-90% brightness from the start. It will reduce the drain and improve the battery life significantly, and the brightness won't be affected that much...

    Unless you are using a matched pair of batteries or a battery pack it is not a good plan to wire lithium cells in parallel.

    There isn't much that can be wrong with the speaker other than possibly shorting, but I wouldn't expect 3 speakers to all have that issue (or even...

    Keep in mind the LED gets very hot. I've built several prototypes of this type of thing (see Space Windu's interview with me or a demo). My main concern with this as a product is that LEDs can get...

    The solid round tip actually gets pretty good illumination from internal reflection. Works better than the solid parabolic. Only thing to do is remove the mirror and it should light up nicely. You...

    3535 have their problems as well, the light is more concentrated into smaller spots that are further apart. 5050s work fine. Diffusion is your friend.

    Try taking it out of the saber, make direct connections and minimal components. Any pixels will be fine to test, it doesn't need to be the blade.

    Wire the blade power directly to the battery,...

    This has been often asked, and is not open for sharing here. Rather than a vague subject for your question, be specific. Vague topics makes finding answers for questions more difficult.

    if they work separately, there is only two things that can be wrong: solder connections and polarity. The pixels are identical and they don't care what about anything but the power and the signal.

    Both of these strips have the sk6812 leds in them. There is no reason for them not to work together. The issue is probably your solder joint. Make sure you have the polarity and direction correct...

    Not bad, but I think you want to limit your current a bit more. Slower and more controlled will get better results and cleaner edges. 10min is really fast for that deep of an etch.

    I believe increased voltage will help with conducting through the solution, thereby allowing more current to flow. Similar to increased voltage being more likely to spark in open air.

    For some of my more detailed etching I've made a vinyl stencil to make a spray paint resist. It will depend on the design, but in some cases it will be easier to get a good result that way.
