Large Clive, who describes his channel because the trashiest electronics on YouTube, has mucked round earlier than with making his personal LED lamps. Now he has monkeyed with 3D design and printing for the primary time to create a easy adapter that turns a take a look at tube into an LED bulb.
As he factors out, this can be a ornamental, ambient lamp, not correct room lighting.
The circuitry is an easy traditional capacitive dropper and I ended up managing to slot in about 26 RGB sluggish color altering straw-hat type LEDs. Notice that it’s higher to make use of the sluggish change RGB LEDs as a substitute of the quick flashing ones as there will likely be a excessive open circuit voltage throughout a flashing LED whereas it’s not lit and that may injury it. You could possibly additionally use normal LEDs for steady illumination. The sunshine solely makes use of about 1W of energy, so it’s extra for ornamental use than room lighting.
This was additionally Clive’s entrance into the world of openSCAD. He consists of the openSCAD script he created which you’ll minimize, paste, and tweak to your individual functions.
