Trellis 4x4 + Neopixel Part / Eagle Library?

by analographi on Thu Nov 08, 2018 5:18 pm

Hey Adafruit

I have seen the trellis library for eagle for the 3mm LEDs.
I have also seen that you do sell a board with the trellis and neopixels.

Would you by any chance share the trellis/neopixel part with me? I’m using altium but I can import Eagle stuff.

I appreciate your help
Best wishes
Raphael

That board is brand new, and I don't think the schematics have been cleaned up for publication yet. I'll check to see if we have anything that's close though.

Hi
Thank you for checking.
In the meantime I have got the trellis and neopixels from you and started to design my own part in Altium.

However there is a problem. The neopixels don't fit, physically, into the contact ring of the trellis!

I mean, I can design it in Altium, no sweat, but if the ring of the trellis doesn't physically go around the neopixels, a button push will never contact the PCP or if so only in a cricked way and that must have quite a weird feel to it...

I don't get it. How is this supposed to work, or how did you get this to work in the neotrellis board?

Could you post a photo showing the part that doesn't fit please? 800x600 images usually work best.

Got it, thank you.

The Neotrellis matrix uses these 3.5mm x 3.5mm Neopixels:

and it looks like you have the larger 5mm x 5mm ones:

I didn't know that
That's a pitty. Shipping (30) + taxes (12) + fee to charge taxes (19$ - because dhl thinks that's what charging taxes costs) was already 61$ and about around half the amount of what I ordered from Ada this time 120$. I certainly will not invest in another 50 + taxes just to get the correct neopixels.

If most of the 5050 pixels are still in strips, we can do an exchange. You'll have to pay the return shipping, but it saves some of the cost.

If you want to try that, send a note containing a link to support@adafruit.com. The folks there will help you.

Thank you, but returning them from Switzerland to the US would cost almost as much for shipping as the 40 Leds I bought cost. Let alone the shipping back to me.

china clones it is...

(maybe add here which LEDs fit underneath?)
