I created light globes in HO for some friends – Bill Gill and Greg Shinnie and had them printed at Shapeways. Greg then – using his magical powers lit one with Nano LEDs from Ngineering. The results are shown on the left. The SBS was published on Railroad Line Forums –
These came out great – Greg gives a complete SBS on the process at this thread .. HO scale school light globes
I started to look around for a possible alternative to the Ngineering LEDs .. specifically on eBay. If found some very small LEDs .. and they came pre-wired. I thought I would give them a try.
|Pre Wired SMD LEDs from eBay|
|There were several sizes LEDs available from one source on eBay which quickly got me to thinking .. make light globes fit the LED. Since they provide everything including dimensions this makes it easy(er) to get down to designing a globe to fit them.|
