3D electricity II

In my last post, I promised new lights. Today opqrstu3D presents a new 12 volt light system for three LEDs. Printing a new hiding place for the constant voltage LED driver took some time, because I wanted it to be as small as possible. The first print was okay, but too big. I used it to power Three Bells

Next challenge, was to connect the driver to three separate ceiling lights. Here’s some problem solving needed. A small hiding place creates not enough space to distribute three hanging lights; they get far to close to each other. I needed three separate connections. Or, I had to design & print three isles, and that’s what I did. The biggest isle contains the driver, two satellite isles create enough space to connect three lights to one driver, hanging from the ceiling. Finally, opqrstu3D assembled these parts with wires, connectors, screws and some good luck. It was quite a job. This light system contains 16 printed parts, 3 pieces of loudspeaker wire, 10 connectors and 6 small copper screws. The pict says it all:
