‘Daylight on a Stick’ is a chainable PCB LED bar by Voron Design used to illuminate your 3D printer. Connectors are located at both ends of the PCB so you can chain bars together. Daybreak is the Vector 3D Modified version of Daylight on a Stick. See ‘Modifications’ below.
Daybreak Neo Mini is just like daybreak, but smaller (mini), and RGB(neo)!
One Daybreak Neo Mini PCB, assembled with JST XH headers at both ends.
- Voltage: 5V
- Dimensions: 170 x 11 mm
- The colour is RGB; individually programmable per LED on the strip.
- The operating temperature of the LEDs is -40 to +80C
These are designed to fit mini Voron 3D printers such as the V0.1 but are compatible with any 5v 3 pin neopixel compatible 3D printer that can provide enough current.
I have designed a mounting system which you can find here: V3D Daybreak Mounts
I have modified the original design in a few ways:
- Different LEDs.
- High CRI is not needed for 3D printing, only for highly accurate colour work such as videography and photography so they have been swapped for more widely available LEDs.
- Different resistors and layout
- Since different LEDs are used, the layout and resistors have been adjusted to suit these.
- The mini variant of Daybreak is a shorter 170mm length for use in smaller printers like the Voron V0.1.
- The standard white LEDs are swapped out for RGB LEDs meaning you can make loads of different colours and control each LED individually using a neopixel library.
