Glue to front of Neopixel?

by Helen_Hats on Sat Jan 23, 2021 2:44 pm

I am making light up hats for my thesis project. I want to up-light vials with neopixels, but I am unsure if it is okay to hotglue/superglue a vial to the top of a neopixel without killing the LED. The alternative would be to stich the vial at a very specific angle to rest on the neopixel which is much more challenging.

Either could work. But I'd probably go with something like E6000 adhesive.

Thank you for the swift response! I will definitely try it with the E6000
