Digital LED strip

RGB LED strips can change many colors, including basic colors such as red, green and blue, as well as combinations of these colors. These strips are ideal for creating ambiance, such as in living rooms, bedrooms and other places where soft lighting is needed. RGB LED strips can be conveniently controlled via remote control or smartphone app. It should be noted, however, that RGB LED strips are high powered and require proper heat dissipation.

Design your shape Here is an example Heart shape

We use a pencil or marker to draw the outline of a heart shape on an acrylic board. You can draw the shape freely or use a template to make sure the shape is accurate.

Prepare your puzzle
Attach a fine-toothed blade to your puzzle. Make sure that the blade is long enough to cut through the thickness of the acrylic sheet.

Cut the acrylic sheet
Use a jigsaw to start cutting along the contours of the heart. It is important to take your time and carefully follow the contours of the cut. Avoid pushing too hard or cutting too fast, as this may cause the acrylic sheet to crack or shatter.

Smoothing the edges
After cutting the heart shape, use sandpaper to smooth out any rough or sharp edges. Start with a coarse grit sandpaper and work your way up to a fine grit sandpaper until the edges are smooth.

Next we choose the RGB strip to make

Determine the location of the LEDs: Use a pencil to mark a spot on the spot where you want to mount the LEDs.Use a pencil ruler to make sure it is in the correct position.

Wear gloves: Make sure to wear gloves and goggles to protect your hands and eyes before doing any drilling.

Prepare the drill bit: Insert the correct size drill bit into the drill. Make sure the drill head is securely fastened to the drill.
The size of the drill head should match the size of the LED light to ensure aesthetics

Start drilling: Place the drill on the point marking the acrylic plate and gently press the trigger. Do not use too much force as it will damage the surface. Slowly push the drill bit down until it completely penetrates the surface.

Finish the hole: Clean up the material around the hole with an iron pliers. If you don’t have a pair of pliers, you can use a regular pair of pliers instead.

Install the LED strip: Insert the LED light into the hole. If you find that it is a little loose, use glue or tape to hold it in place.

How to choose acrylic led light power adapter

Your strip is 12VDC, one meter is 12 watts, a total of 4 meters of strip, then the total wattage of the strip is 12×4 = 48W. Then you need to choose a constant voltage driver of 48W or more. The general wattage on the market are conventional, such as: 35W, 50W, 60W, 75W, 100W, 150W, 200W, 350W and so on. Then, choose greater than 60W is no problem.
