Wiring the EL Wire and Powering Up

A project log for DIY EL Wire + 3D Printed "Neon" Sign!

I love the look of neon signs but they aren't particularly easy to DIY without glassblowing skills and equipment, so EL Wire to the rescue!

So now that we have the 3D printed frame in our hands we can put everything together and see how it looks. I made a short video reviewing the CAD process from last time as well as showing the general assembly process and finally some footage of the final sign lit up. Not a bad outcome for around only $10 in parts and a few hours of work.

Here are some glamour shots I took of the sign in action as well. If you guys have any suggestions for future signs or methods I should try comment below.
