“Made a Custom HexLight consist of WS2812 2020 package LEDs and Attiny85 all jam packed in a 3D Printed body.
HEXLIGHT is a small, hexagon-shaped RGB light that is created using custom PCBs and a 3D-printed body. An Attiny85 MCU controls 48 WS2812 2020 Package Mini Addresable LEDs in this system.
The idea behind this project was to create a modern RGB light that I could add to my display for aesthetic purposes. It adds to the overall appearance of the desk.
Inside the PLA-based 3D-printed body, six PCBs are housed and joined in the form of a hexagon.
Additionally, a diffuser made of transparent PLA spreads the leds light so that the entire hex light section glows.
I made a simple mount that is attached to the TV with a screw so that I could put this hexlight on top of a 32-inch LED TV.
