Add a second LED strip to my N1

Postby Deepspaceobject » Thu Jan 17, 2019 7:33 pm

Hello, If I were to add a second LED strip to the left hand side of my dual N1 can it be run from the same power source as the right hand strip?

Many thanks

There has an empty power socket on motion board you can use for the extra strip, as long as you can find LED strip can fits N1.

Hi Vicky, is there a document or post that shows how to access the motion board with pinout details?

Many thanks.

There are 3 terminals siting together on the motion board which are all for 12V constant-on, for motion board cooling fan and LED strips.

Thanks Vicky, one very last question.
How do I get at the MCB? is there a PDF on access to the electronics, I don't want to start unbolting the bottom or front without knowing what I am doing.

Many thanks.

Simply tip the N1 on it's side, unbolt the 4 bolts holding the large plastic cover on the bottom of the printer and remove that cover. Then remove the four M3 ( I believe) holding the MCB cover one left side and your there. They're all allen heads.

BTW, I'm interested doing the same mod, so I'd like know what LED string you end up using...

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave, sorry I didn't get a chance to reply yesterday. Thanks for the info covering access to the MCB.

I have ordered another of the original LED strips from https://3dgbire.com price here in the UK is £15.89 plus VAT and postage.
Here is a direct link to the part if you are in the UK: https://3dgbire.com/collections/spare-p ... ssembly-n1

Thanks,

Brian

Thanks Brian... I might order a set. This week, I'm sort of busy at work and my new N2 + is arriving Thursday, so I might be pre-occupied for a few days before getting back to the N1! :) In any case, thanks for the response.

Dave
