Does the voltage converter also works with 6 LED (3x2 parallel) for 6 mushrooms?
Because the voltage converter you refering to, only has 2x2 parallel
Thanks for your help!

Yes, it should work, but the LED's are less bright!

I've noticed on the mushroom head that the base ring is slightly inset from where the mushroom "cap" starts printing. This makes it very unstable when trying to pry off or printing the first set of cells. If this is unintentional, could you modify the base so it's centered under the cap?

Hi, reset my retraction to 0.3mm and my small mushroom heads are now coming out perfect. Great project. My only observation is that on the trre trunk an extra couple of lugs at right angles to the locking pegs would take some of the stress away from the locking pegs and stop the cover from rotating on the locking peg axis. Thanks for your help.

Having problems printing small mushroom head. Can you indicate what printer settings that you used? My efforts to date are poor due to the fragile nature of the print and have larger holes in places spoiling the end effect,

To evaluate what the problem is,
first try to print it with no retraction(or lower retraction).(I have done it like that too)
Then please give me a feedback of the result.

Any chance you could provide more details on the wiring. I took a look at one of the links you provided, but it wasn't clear to me how you connected the led's to the voltage converter.

Sorry for the late reply,
here is the plan:
