Just sharing my LED light install. It’s a frills free job, but it was done with parts I had on hand at the time and I really didn’t want anything too permanent(drilling holes… etc)
I used the common LED strips that you can cut to length. I got a big roll of it from Amazon fairly cheap awhile back…But it can be bought from Radio Shack in 1 meter lengths, although a bit pricier.
I cracked open an old wall wart 12 volt charger/power adapter I had laying around, and found a home for it inside the controller casing. I had full intentions of printing a case for it, but it didn’t make any sense to , really. This adapter was rated for 1 amp, and the 1 meter of LED’s call for 1.5 amp, which is probably less real life. Plus I’m only using two feet of it, 12" for the front and 12" for the rear. I stuck with just 2x 12" strips for two reasons. One, it’s plenty of light, and two, if you measure from the top two/inner allen screws on the top, it’s exactly 12". So it just made sense to line the lights up with those two screws(nice time to print a bracket). I just unsoldered the leads from the wall wart’s prongs and ran common and load to the switched side of the power supply. So when the printer was turned on, the lights would come on.
I just used some industrial strength velcro to attach the adapter to the case.
If your wires are thin enough, they’ll slide just behind the vertical bars’ support bracket, to run to the rear LEDs.
A little heat shrink helps hide my awesome soldering skills
I used velcro to attach the LED’s as well… And used hot glue to secure the wires… It’s ugly, but isn’t permanent.
