LED light setup?

What light set-ups are available?  I'm finding ones for MK series but nothing for the Mini. Thought maybe I've been looking in the wrong place. TIA.

RE: LED light setup?

I think there may not be for a couple reasons.

There is not an easy place to tap off the power supply that I am aware of. The mini uses 24V. You would have to tap off the board.

There is not really a place to mount anything on the printer. You don't want to add any more weight to the arm for the hotend or on the Z axis tower.

I just got a light strip and power supply and stuck them to the enclosure I made from a Lack table. A USB powered strip with adhesive is pretty cheap, cheaper than the strips designed for the MK series.

Regards,

Mark

I have printer in LACK enclosure, printed few pieces of this holder and attached under top table. I scavenged LED strip similar to this one from old computer's lighting and power it from phone charger.

Thanks for the responses. 

 

I'm also looking for a camera mount if anyone has any good options.  🙂

I've collected all the mini related prints https://www.prusaprinters.org/social/901-gordon-w/collections/10303 I'm still waiting on my printer, so can't vouch for any of them being better than others, but there are a few camera mounts in the collection.

There are hundreds of camera mounts on thingiverse.  You wont find many Mini specific ones but the mini uses standard extrusions to connect the front to back.  There are many that will mount to various extrusion sizes, pick one you like.
