    Default 3D printed Skulls

    These are printed with a clear/natural filament... with very little interior structure. I'll clean most of the interior stuff out when I put the pixels in.

    Links to the files
    Skull (print 4 to 5 inches tall) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3023761 <-- updated skull link 07/28/18
    Pixel Holder - 2 parts https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3014958

    Glue two part pixel holder together with Loctite Super Glue Ultragel Control

    Have a small 3D printed base that will hold 6 pixels inside... (4 pixels are plenty)

    The printed base and pixel holder simply slips into the bottom of the skull

    Four pixels are plenty in dark conditions. Also, leaving the center slots open gives you a place to tuck away the extra wire.

    Those are awesome. How big are they? Do you plan to share your design?

    They are the size of a small grapefruit?? maybe... I left the airbrush in the picture for scale.

    Yea, once I get them assembled and tested, I'll post everything...
