Mover3D is a 3D-printed moving light for your desk

LEDs are fun, and RGB(W)s adds a new element to things, but what if you want a light that can also move by itself? The Mover3D does just that as a pan/tilt system controlled by the DMX512 communication protocol. You simply feed instructions in via any standard lighting console, and it dances around under your commands.

The 3D-printed device uses an Arduino Uno inside the fixture’s base to send signals to an RGBW LED, as well as control a pair of servo motors that pan and tilt the light turret. While light output is limited for now, a second version featuring a 14,000 lumen output with stepper motors and slip rings for 360° rotation is in the works, and should be quite impressive when it’s done!

Setup and programming instructions can be found in the project’s write-up, and needed print files are up on Thingiverse.
