Has anyone ventured to see how it would look if you were to line all sides with LEDs? I'm just wondering whether it would spread the light more evenly about the tile or become too overbearing, and would like to see if anyone has attempted this.

I toyed with the idea of putting leds mid way across each side but the hotspots and current panel design caused me some issues so I never went forward.  Also need to watch how many leds you are trying to drive In total.

But I am still wondering if the hotspots would be overbearing if the entire edge was LED strip.

As for the issue of trying to run too many LEDs, I was going to play around with different chipsets for powering the LEDs, as where I am intending on putting them having a larger control box wouldn't be noticeable. As such the power load isn't much of a concern. I was more concerned with the appearance.

Well, I am going to print my first ones and try it out. I'll update the thread with a picture when I do.
