3D model description

The complete and universal design of an 8" Led Ring!

Make your OWN led ring, and take the best photos and videos for your TikToks, Instagram feed, Snapchat, Facebook... or to give a very nice present to someone.

Cointains no watermarks.

Follow the instructions below and the recommendations in the "print parameters" section.

You will need to print:

  • 1x ring.stl

  • 1x base ring.stl

  • 1x butterfly.stl

  • 1x pivot.stl

  • 1x inner cover.stl

  • 1x plug cap.stl

Also, you'll need:

  • 1x 1/4" x 1 1/2" screw

  • 2x 1/4" nut

  • 50cm of 5050 Led Strip 12v IP20 (with this you will need to make the internal led ring, connecting the positives and the negatives respectively)

  • 1x female jack 2.1mm or 2,6mm (for chassis)

  • 1x 12v 1A power source 2.1mm or 2.6mm (switching)

  • Glue


1) Look at the parameters described in the "print parameters" section. Take care of the recomendations written there. Then print all the STL's.

2) Cut 10 pieces of the led strip and paste them in the gaps of "aro base f.stl". With the welder, wire the positives between them. Do the same with the negatives. TIP: You can use Copper pins to make this job easier.

3) Connect the female jack positive and negative terminals to the led ring and screw the jack to the round hole on the side of "aro base f.stl". TIP: If you can, stick it with glue. Just to reinforce it.

4) Stick with glue the "tapita de plug.stl" part to "aro base f.stl", covering the jack connections.

5) Put "inner.stl cap" into "base.stl.ring.f.stl" and stick it with glue. After this, fit the "ring.stl" into "base ring f.stl". TIP: Before sticking CHECK if the leds turn on correctly by connecting the power source to the female jack.

6) Take the screw, "butterfly.stl" and "pivot.stl" and place them as the picture shows. After this, you should be capable of tilting the led ring back and forth, and adjusting the position with the "butterfly.stl".

7) And the last.. Connect the power source to the led ring and ENJOY
