This was a Nanoleaf inspired flower for my little sister to her 5. birthday. She loves the original thing from Surrbradl that I made for myself. So i decided to make a much more child-friendly version for her. I designed it with tinkercad and printed it on our Anet A8. Got much problems with printing, because I have not known cura makes problems with file names. After searching and trying a lot i decided to use Slic3r for this project which works fine. The problem was german letters which made cura to stay in 0.3 in the Z-Axis without moving every layer. Next problem was Cura doesn´t slice the Flowerleaf correctly on the last layer. Soldering was done from dad.
The Software was used from the original thing which i tried to change for my needs. Thanks to the owner of the original thing for some help. Often i was thinking to complicated. The Software doesn´t work 100% but for my needs it´s OK. The off-timer doesn´t work how i thought (I want to make the brighntess diming in time to Zero for the night) and some patterns doesn´t do. For my sister all is fine cause she loves the sparkling rainbow and some solid color (pink... what else) so the patterns are not needed for her. I try to fix till i got little more time (maybe easter holidays)
Actually i used ws2812b strip and cut every LED. Then soldered it to fit in the parts. Every single print is filled with 3 LED´s.
Glued the parts together with hotglue and mounted the lamp with "Tesa PowerStrip Large" .
The parts have a connector on the beginning and the of the stalk. Also on the flower itself.
There are 9 flower parts and one flower part with gap for the stalk. 3 times print the stalk and one of every leaf. The flower covers a bit to big, but for me it works with some point of glue in the middle of the flower and some little point on the end of the cover.

I designed this with tinkercad.
when someone wants to have a special wish, let me know.
The software was slightly modified from Thing , but not 100% functionally.
Added a flower mode for the flowerstalk, so this stays in green colours as the flower changes the patterns.
Got to less time till the birthday of my sister to get it completly running. Time of doesn´t work and some patterns doesn´t seem to work in Flower mode.
