ReeFi gen 2 high power LEDs

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I haven't keep you guys updated for awhile. I'm in Dongguan China now behind the great firewall. Hehe

 

A bit rewarding to see my hours of CAD work design becoming a real thing. I'm using over 20 vendors to make custom parts. Inspecting and testing the parts that have arrived. Still waiting for a few more vendors to deliver. A bit of production delay is expected on first run. Hopefully, I'll be getting everything in next week in time before Chinese New Year holiday.

Thanks for the update Daniel - exciting to see this turn into a finished product!  Congrats on seeing all your hard design work come together.  Maybe we could get a demo at one of the upcoming meetings?  BTW - who’s feeding the triggers while you are in China?

Wow Daniel!  It's been amazing to see the production of these progress.  I like the silver diode plate and the external casing.  I'm excited to see what they're capable of!

Yes, I would be excited to show off the new light at an upcoming meeting.

 

My other fishes are feeding the triggers.. 😜

I have autofeeders setup with pellets.  Hopefully, it won't run out.

Ran into some issues when test fitting the enclosure...  When I designed the enclosure, I downloaded the 3D STEP model files for the power jack and USB plug from the manufacture.  I just assume that their drawings would be up to date.  Unfortunately, the power jacks and USB plugs are 0.4mm higher in real life product than their 3D model files.  Urrgg!!!  Now, the enclosure mold tooling needs to be modified and this will take 10 days, which will push the production of these enclosure to after Chinese New Year.

Another issues I ran into is the OLED screen pins arrangement were not what I specified.  I was planning to connect the OLED screen with jumper cables to the main circuit board.  I've already ordered the jumper cables, but now I need to modify the cable wires so the pins will match up (gnd to gnd, vcc to vcc, etc..).

Once I finished assembling what I can now, I'll be heading to Taiwan to celebrate Chinese New year with my wife and son.  I'll have to make another trip to get everything done.  This will give me time to refine the software user interface.
