I love my new MK3s so I gave it some light

What a maschine!

Assembly took approx. 10 hours + calibration, and it works like a charm!
I have one complaint, though. They have completely and utterly miscalculated the amount of Gummy bears needed. Was empty on page 5..

Anyway, I have added some lighting to mye new maschine. Found the STLs for the arms on thingiverse and used a WS2812B strip (cut to 19 leds), a "cableduct" from Biltema, a D1Mini with WLED firmware in a small printed box.

Interfaced via OctoPrint, so my Home Assistant automation turns on the lightbar when printer is connected, and (of course) triggers the "scanner" light effect when printing starts 🙂

I came from a FlashForge Finder. Let's just say I love my Prusa!

Only thing you are missing is a Pi Camera. Put that light bar to work!

I don't use OctoLapse as much as webcam It is really nice to watch the printer from my computer in case something goes wrong.

I have, integrated with Home Assistant 🙂 Just an old webcam I had lying around, so not the best quality, but good enough for now.
Not added OctoLapse yet, using it the same way you do. Still, when I get a better camera I will install it and check it out.
