"Moving" the board indicators leds to the front without any soldering The DuetWifi board has number of indicator leds for the heated bed, endstops, power, diag, status and more.
i think i found a simple, clean and fast way to "move" the leds to the front using a cheap sound optic cable (cost 3$ for 10m). So, i ordered 20m of optic cable and started to model a concept parts, and guess what? it worked !!
So how i made this concept:
buy 2 x 10m of optic cable for 6$ from HERE
i modeled these tiny mounts models - download from HERE
use sculpt knife to clean cut the optic cable to 1.6m~ long wires.
mount the "optic cables board mount" part to the board (picture attached). then slide 5 optic cables (1.6m~ long) to the mount.
install the "Front Panel optic cable indicators" using M5+Tnut screw and slide the cables end to the holes of the panel.
Mind the files i provided are more like concept version :) . You can make even better front panels with text (just an idea) or combine the cables inside the front panels. After getting some feedback from you guys, i will add it to the poject.
you are more then welcome to post your remix for this concept here. note: files under the Creative Commons - Attribution - Non-Commercial - Share Alike license
