‘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 is just like Daybreak, but RGB!
One Daybreak NEO PCB, assembled with JST XH headers at both ends.
- Voltage: 5V
- Dimensions: 270 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 Voron 3D printers and will fit in all sizes of the Voron 2.4 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 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.
