Faulty LED light strip

Recommended Posts

Hi all, hopefully an easy one.

An LED on my UM2 has failed (I believe) which has caused the remaining 5 in that segment to go dim - please see picture. Red arrow is failed LED.

Can I safely chop that segment of 6 LEDs out without any detrimental effect to the printer? It'll just draw slightly less power right?

Forgive me if that's a stupid question - mechanical background! :-)

Cheers,

Matt.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
