Hello I am also using an ender 3 and have a 22 tile setup.
You can print full size, just rotate the pice slightly and you can make it, also make sure you dont have so skirts stealing your building capacity, I strongly recommend it, otherwise you will have problems fitting the servo cable connectors.
Also for experience I prefer using a 2mm brimm, it hepls prevent warping on big models like this; with PLA is not a big issue, but I have had some on the corners of this project.

About loosing 1 print, don't worry, we all have gone through it.

Try using chrome in incognito mode from a PC, it let me use almost all the functions.
Use NTP and set it a modest time to work, 18:00 - 23:00 in my case.
Is not perfect but at least it lets me enjoy it, set as default works this way, at least for me.

Im glad it helped.
Hopefully somebody can debug this behavior.
I love V3, but it's a little bit unresponsive.

Having the same experience using V3, worked fine for a while, then some stuff stopped working, at the moment I can only make changes using chrome from laptop with incognito mode.
If you have time, try falling back to V2 and check if the behavior is corrected; it never caused me problems.

First of all, thank you for the release, I love it, the new patterns are great, the UI is simple but nice.
I think I am finding some abnormal behavior.
It didn't let my wife's phone to turn manually on/off, it just didn't get the action.
After a few days of use, it stopped accepting changes form my phone and then computer.
I was able to turn on/off using an incognito tab, but after a few uses, it is no longer working.

If there is anything I can do to debug the behavior just let me know, I'd love to help improve this wonderful project.

I got V3 working, I really like the new patterns and additions.

But it seems is a little bit glitchy.
I have problems setting changes on manual power on/off, I set a schedule so it is on while we are awake during the night, but is not nice to know some of the control we used to have is not working right.

I had similar problems at the beginning, did Erase EEPROM and Erase SPIFFS.
Went over the whole proccess again and figured out it was my fault, I forgot to upload the new sketch to the ESP8266 board step.

moodlite Electronics / Re: Maximum units?
« on: February 26, 2019, 02:58:55 PM »
Based on other dicussions.
Each led at full birght white is rated at 60mA.
If you use 1 LED per side then 60x3 we are talking about .18A per tile so you can power ~5 tiles per 1A on your PSU doing maximum bright.
This is not considering voltage drop (I donīt have so much knowledge on that area).

My setup is a 22 panels, 1 led per side, that in theory draws 3.96A and I am using a 4A PSU without problems yet.

Let's talk 3D printers... / Re: My new toy - JGAURORA A5

I always give the bed a wipe with alcohol before each print. Sticks great then. :-)

Agree on the bed cleaning on each print.
22 successful panels using hatchbox 1.75 white pla
70c bed
room temp usually 30c but interestingly the best results were with room 27c over night, maybe the fresher air helped the pla to harden better.

Build Finished!
Waiting for the sound reaction code to be implemented. ;D

Did you ever post the instructions on programming the controller? I sear I saw it before somewhere but I cannot find the instructions on how to do it anymore.

Thanks!

For easier tinning people use Flux
I bought one that the seller said it is "pre fluxed". I can't tell if it is true, but it really sticks very easy to the surfaces.

moodlite Chitchat / Re: Servo Leads Max Current
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:46:39 PM »
I have 21 tiles (63 leds) set at the moment
I measured the power consumption with a kill-a-watt, set the color to full bright white and the draw was 10 watt, thefore ~5v@2A
This looks kind of good because in theory that max load could reach 18.9 watts.
Maybe I am missing something, but the result seems to point a consumption quite below the theorical one.

I was similar at the beginning.
Tip 1: ask on the electronics shop for a quality soldering iron. Will last longer and give you more consistent r suits.
Tip 2: Look on YouTube for "cable tinning" you will find good tips to get started.
Tip 3: if you are serious about doing a lot from here on, get some helping hands, they make your life easier.
I decided to tin both all cables then all leds and  then just put them close and the iron, it's very easy that way.

Look at timezone lib: https://github.com/JChristensen/Timezone

Part "Coding TimeChangeRules".
Hello.
Can you help.
I just can not deal with ntp.

// Ntp Server
// Time zones
// Eastern European Time (Ukraine, Kiev)
// Eastern European Summer Time
TimeChangeRule uaEest = {'EEST', Last, Sun, Mar, 31, 180};
// Central European Standard Time
TimeChangeRule uaEet = {'EET', Last, Sun, Oct, 27, 120};
Timezone uaEastern (uaEest, uaEet);
TimeChangeRule * tcr;
How to use public ntp server?
And why does one LED remain on when switching off via the interface?

I am facing the same behavior there is one led always on red in the first panel.
If I dim the lights to 0 it will stay off along all others, but using manual turn off leaves one on.
