Neopixel stripe barrel position


Recommended Posts

Hi all, this is a newbie question, I am planning to build an E-11 blaster with sound and lights. But I wasn't able to find what I should place the neopixel stripe into the barrel.

 

Thank you all in advance, and best regards from Argentina.

Hi Pola,

 

I placed my strip into a clear acrylic tube.  Then I could slide it down the barrel without it getting stuck on something along the way and bunching up.

What a clever idea, I love it :0Lighten:

I also want to know the position of the stripe looking from the front of the blaster. If it is at the top (12), bottom (6), left (3), right (9) or any other clock position,

 

Thanks again....

I have it pointing down and to the right if you are looking down the barrel so let's say 5 o'clock.

 

Maybe these pictures will help?

The detail level of your blaster is AWESOME. I was able to see the location of the stripe, and now I know where to place it.

 

I will be posting my progress once I start mine.

 

Thanks again and best regards from Argentina...
