    This is vague. It could be anything. Your subject should be more like "Question about MHS threads" If every question took the form of your post we'd have at most 5 subjects under the category of...

    Once again, I think you need to make adjustments to pull more slowly for a longer period of time.

    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.
  4. if they work separately, there is only two things...

    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.

    Just use a standard resistor. Go to the next higher common, protect to your LED. It's brightness isn't going to change that much and it's not like an ultra bright switch accent is the thing that...

    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.

    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...

    Not possible with the NBv4. Back in the ancient history when I made one of the first pixel sabers, I used an NBv3 and used the blade and clash signals with an arduino to make custom lighting effects...

    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.

    Resistors are never "required" they are useful in some instances. I use bare pixels all the time without issue.
