Spigot requested a shallow version which I've done. Looking at it I think it's a good idea. I'll print one out overnight and compare it to the current version. If it doesn't really make much difference then I will be swapping to this version going forward as it will save on print time / filament but it might also allow easier placement of a diffuser type material if needed..


Will update tomorrow

Has anyone tried using reflective metal tape in the v1 base plate?  Seems that would help bouce the light to the entire panel and give a more even glow.

Happy to hear your results as I planned to print the first tile today.

Awesome Project, Im looking to build one for my daughter, Just a question, Have you ever tried the tile bottom completly flat like the original? so the light can travel to the other side freely? even I was thinking on putting some reflective film on the side walls so it can dristribute the light a little bit more?

I was able to print this tile much sooner than expected. I have 4 LEDs (some garbage that I have left from other project) in each corner, but 5 would be better  :D

Nice! What about a look into the inside?
