    Did this as a proof of concept. Looks amazing, and was very easy to do, albeit a tad tedious gluing in 55 lights and hiding the wires. Next one I will be mounting on a backing board so the wires don't need to be hidden individually and so it can be hung on a wall if needed.


    .2mm resolution

    Printed 101mm high (entire model scaled to get height 101)
    Change the Z-Axis Height to 45mm (only changing Z axis, leave x and y alone)

    20mm bottom crop so the holes go all the way through

    the two steps above allow you to easily have the holes through the entire model without needing to edit the model

    Lots of hot glue to keep the lights in place and more importantly the wire neatly hidden in the letters shape.
