A Simple 3D Printed Frame for an RGB LED Panel

Unlike our instructable on aluminum frames for RGB LED panels(…), which is scalable to almost any size display, this design is targeted at a display using one specific type of panel (191mm x 96mm). The link to the one we used is below.
The advantages to this framing solution are:
- It requires NO special hardware. It requires NO cutting metal. It requires NO measuring. It requires NO special bolts, nuts or wrenches. There is no drilling. It can be assembled using machine screws from any hardware store or Home Depot.
- It is 3D printed, so you can choose the color and texture of the filament you use.
- It is really simple. There are only six pieces and six screws in the basic frame, plus two more screws to mount the panel brackets, and two screws to mount the MatrixPortal bracket.
For a processor we used an Adafruit MatrixPortal. ( )

Machine Screws (Qty. 6) for attaching beams 1/4-20 x 1/2
Screws and nuts (Qty. 2 each) for attached matrIxportal mount 1/4-20 x 1/2 and 1/4 - 20 nut
Screws and nuts (Qty. 2 each) for attaching the panel mounts 1/4-20 x 1/2and 1/4 - 20 nut
Screws for attaching the panel to mount (Qty. 2) M3 x 20mm”
