Cool LED Mod for M2?

Anyone have any cool LED mods for the M2? Maybe like some LED spotlights on the print area?

There's some discussion of adding LED light strips to the M2 frame here: Where to get 12v power for an LED light strip?

(A mod I'm definitely looking into... as I have a few feet of LED light strip just looking for a good home)

Hey apk,

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I've got a 5m strip of LED's and other single LED's I've been looking to use for a while. I'm not sure if I can separate the LED strip into sections though...I'm sure it can probably be done, I've just never done it before.

Look at the strip and check if the LEDs are arranged in sections of about 3 or so. There is usually a dividing line with 2-4 solder pads on both sides. In between those pads is where you make the cut. Then solder your leads on.
I'm finally back to where I started two days ago!
