    That makes sense. Do you have a link to his thread?

    Sure. Here's an overview: This is the back mounting bracket: The back is designed to be mounted to two places, but I ignored that and used a couple longer 3D printed spacers to center-mount it. I also used 8mm threaded stainless steel stock for the "bolt", and stainless nylock nuts on each...

    Yeah, the issue with the clear plate, unless it is easy to remove, is there are buttons and a joystick that need to be manipulated. I guess I should look at having a sliding window on the hood - maybe a piece of acrylic, ~1mm thick, that can slide sideways in a slot to allow access to the...

    Yeah, I've got a small "hood" for the display that I haven't printed yet, and as you surmised, it will mount on those two holes.

    So after a couple full 8-10 hour days working on the software, its working now - I'm pretty happy about that. Here's what the UI looks like: The two blue circles indicate the headlights, and the two red squares indicate the taillights. They are all off at this point. The battery indicator on...

    I can print with carbon using my printer, but I have to replace the nozzle with a special hardened steel nozzle (otherwise the carbon fibers will wear down the normal nozzle very quickly). I have the hardened steel nozzle, just haven't gotten around to taking apart the print head to replace it.

    I'll have to think about whether I want to use TPU or ABS. I might just redesign the mount and include a screw for tightening.

    Yeah, the flashing duty cycle looks very much like 50%. The lights basically switch modes each time you power cycle them. First power cycle is high beam, then low beam, then flash.

    The mount is very tight on the tube. So much so I might have to re-print with a slighly larger hole (0.1mm) to get it to slide all the way on. The flag poles have red led-strips along their full length, and each will be controllable separately, with full PWM brightness control.

    On high beam, each light draws around 750 mA at 12 volts. On low beam, each light draws around 140 mA. On the flash cycle, it averages about 375 mA.

    I've been busy over the last few weeks, working on a few different things, including the lighting setup for my trike. Here's the tail light wiring: Each end has waterproof connectors on it, so I can remove the light poles and the central control module. Here's the front lights, mounted...

    The cover panel finished printing, so I mounted the power board on it and tried it all for fit: And here it is, all done up - note that I still need the power wires from the battery to the power board, and from the board to the motor control board on the stack. I also need to add a power...

    Here's the protoboard I built to handle power: The two USB sockets provide 5 volts (from the voltage regulator daughterboard) to the microcontroller stack shown earlier, and to my cell phone (which will be mounted normally on the trike). Here's the case I designed and 3D printed, which holds...

    Yeah, I need one more board that I will probably make from protoboard, that will have a 5 volt 5 amp switching regulator, and power distribution. Since I also have a phone carrier on my trike, I want to be able to charge the phone battery from the big 12 volt lithium, so I'll throw a USB-A...

    So I've started working on the lighting system for my trike. Back in the summer I ordered a 5 meter red 12v LED strip from AliExpress, and I just ordered a pair of motorcycle front aux. lights from them. Earlier this week I ordered a few electronics boards from a local Adafruit distributor, to...
