CAD Assembly

The two NeoPixel sticks are secured to the NeoPixel Stick Mount with hardware screws and nuts. The NeoPixel mount snap fits into the bottom side of the star core. Eleven spikes snap fit into the star core. The star bottom piece snap fits into the NeoPixel stick mount. The star fragment assembly rests onto the stand. The stand is secured to the star case top cover with machine screws. The star case top and bottom covers snap fit onto the star case frame. 

CAD Parts List

STL files for 3D printing are oriented to print "as-is" on FDM style machines. Parts are designed to 3D print without any support material using PLA filament. Original design source may be downloaded using the links below.

Transparent Filament

For best illumination, we suggest printing the Star-Core and NeoPixel Stick Mount parts in translucent / transparent PLA filament.

The star spikes were 3D printed in a yellow colored PLA filament.

Build Volume

The parts require a 3D printer with a minimum build volume.

  • 138mm (X) x 132mm (Y) x 42mm (Z)

Bed Adhesion

Applying brim to the star spikes can help improve bed adhesion. A minimum of 6 perimeters is suggested to keep the part from coming off the bed of the 3D printer.
