While the UFO will arrive after the 4th, who doesn't like Lightsabers at any time of the month/year? lol.
I am currently working on theming out my bedroom in Star Wars stuff, and am planning on making a couple of these to hang on my wall for lighting, and I think Fernando did a great job with the designs!
As for filaments, the 4 companies used this month are all new to the UFOs, so definitely let me know what you think of them!
May the 4th be with you, Always!
Congrats to Gary B.

All filament samples are at least 20 meters in length (actually more, I increased the length to eat up the extra filament being left behind on the rolls)
Those looking for a sample spooler, MadMonkey designed this one and it's been my favorite so far https://www.printables.com/model/36621-expandable-sample-spool-holder

Midnight Blue Tough PLA
*Note: I had originally ordered PLA but Filamatrix called me as they didn't have 20 in stock, so they upgraded them to the Tough PLA, according to their site the temps are the same, but wanted to point it out as the card just says PLA.

1200 pcs Ferrules Kit
Ferrules are a great option for the ends of wires when being clamped down into connectors rather than using bare frayed wires or tined tips. BV3D has an excellent explanation as to why you should use them.
Unfortunately I couldn't work a ferrule crimper into the budget, but I've linked to the one that I use below.
WiFi controllable LED Laser Swords - by DSK
Parts have been updated for the 20mm rocker switch.
It's been a while since I did a May the 4th Be With you project, so with the help of Fernando, we came up with these!
Only 1 LED strip was within the budget, so Fernando made 2 versions, 1 with a 1 meter blade one sided for hanging on a wall, or if you have a 2nd strip available for both sides, or 1 with a half meter blade with the strip folded over to both sides.
We opted for the WiFi capability in case you wanted to hang them on a wall or something as a decoration to control the color changing.
- ESP8266 With Power Cable
- Momentary Button for switching colors from the hilt
- Rocker Switch to turn power on/off
- 1 M 60 LED IP30 Strip
- 3AA Long inline Battery Holder
Though I couldn't get everything due to the budget of the project, I also wanted to be able to plug in the light sword to be able to display it on the wall, or when I take it to ERRF. Because the LED strip cannot be powered from the D1 Mini (it will kill the board due to the amount of power the LED's need), these are my suggested items to grab...

I 'm trying out a new tripod setup this month to get a smoother camera and free up both hands. I hope to improve the angle as I go along but it gives me the ability to show more projects. My videos are quick one shot videos with no editing or cuts other then length cuts so If I fail you see it LOL. Please overlook the noises in the background due to road noise and printer noise, I am just a average joe working in a garage doing this for fun and to share knowledge like the rest of us and not in a studio.
Thanks for watching!
