I didn't make directions yet. It's basically 5 leds (4 red, 1 green), 5 resistors, pins, and the board. Power supply by a usb phone plug will work. I can get you a battery pack since I said I would. I forgot that I said I'd include it. I drop-shipped one to you and Tim. Ivan, if you need one of these too, let me know. The directions are basically, solder the pins to the board, put one resistor per led, and solder the resistor to a pin, and the led back to ground. There's 5 pins that are controlled by the chip, and only 5 controlled pins, so basically any will do. One was designed specifically for the green since it blinks steady, and the other 4 are for the 4 red LEDs. I'll make a more detailed instruction describing and showing what to do exactly.I received my package and had a couple questions.
First, do you have a parts list and directions for the electronics?
yesSecond, are the panels the correct size on the 1/3 scale?
Well technically I did only plan and say I'd make these in resin if I had enough interest, and we didn't meet those numbers, and was planning on charging a higher price for the 3d printed version, but charged you guys the lower cost resin version anyway to be nice. The printed versions do take some elbow grease to get nice. The best way is to use filler primer, high build formula, and then sand that down. Don't try to sand down the plastic, since that won't work.Third, any suggestions on how to best deal with the print lines on the panels? I understand that there were issues with getting these cast in resin. However, these have some rough looking print lines. I really don't want to end up losing some of the raised detail if I try sanding them.
Thanks for the tips. I'm glad I didn't rush in with the sand paper. Is there a particular brand that you would recommend? If you have a favorite brand, do you have a good place to purchase?The best way is to use filler primer, high build formula, and then sand that down.
