I started this project a year ago, my ideia with was to make an easy modular system that could create different gates with the shapes and sizes.

Initially i made these to use old used Led strips that i had laying arround. If you don’t have any of led strip i advice you these:

  • 5M WS2812B SMD5050 Non-waterproof LED Strip Light DC5V – https://bit.ly/2Rj63j8
  • Bluetooth APP Smart LED Controller for WS2811 WS2812 RGB Strip Light DC5-12V – https://bit.ly/2ybgSLw
  • Remote Controller for WS2811 WS2812B LED Strip Light DC5-24V – https://bit.ly/2Owv4ss
    You can use any 5v powersupply, a powerbank, or even Lipo using one of these
    2S-6S Lipo to USB Power Converter 5V 2A – https://bit.ly/2OwDzE2

All the gate parts are designed to 10mm Width led strip. You can you use non-waterproof or waterproof led strip. If you find that the waterproof led strip is difficult to pass through the 3dprinted parts, put WD40 in a napkin and softly pass it through the led strip to make it easier to insert in the 3d printed part.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
