Obviously need some debounce code here, and the servo motor noise seems to be triggering touch as well.  Probably need some tinfoil.  

But hey... It's Alive!

Can you believe @Morning.Star wrote all the code for this, without *ever* having access to the hardware (as it didn't exist yet.)  I asked for 'organic', and gave him the hardware I was using.  He delivered.

Simply unbelievable.  Thank you sir.

Soon sort out the code... ;-)

Its beautiful, Daren. You sir are a master printer, those lightpipes are sweet. An honour to be involved, and fascinating to watch it come to life with such a flourish from the photos of parts on the printbed. :-)

*bow* *flourish* 

They are not quite good enough. There are distinct dead zones between the LEDs as I can't light all of them from the end. If you can't light an extrusion from the end with FDM, it is not a light pipe. Light does not like to cross layer boundaries.
