In an attempt to move my existing hexagon project to the land of wearables, I've created this portable sigil you can install to your backpack in order to boost your mystic, crazy inventor vibes. A great conversation starter, visibility booster, and simple to construct project!
The hexagon sigil does feature a customized circuit board, which will need to be fabricated in order to produce a replica of this design. I've added up all the components themselves, and you can build this for around $40 (PCB not included in this estimate).
You will simply need to print one of each item. Here's a description of the item and specific material notes:
This part will ultimately be sewed on the inside of the backpack. It can be any color you want. It's not meant to be visible. 25% infill. Any color.
Hexagon Shell Top
This part snaps on to the Hexagon Shell and is used to secure the circuitry in place. It won't be visible either. 25% infill. Any color.
This part is used to diffract the light from the NeoPixels. As such, it should be printed with a transparent material (I used transparent PETG) @ 100% infill.
This is the faceplate which is used both asethetically and to hold the insert in place. I prefer Black PETG @ 25% infill
Hexagon Core w/ Rails
This is the base component which most of the other parts ultimately fit into. It is visible and in my experience, looks best with White PETG @ 25% infill.
Solder the PCB
Once you receive an empty PCB based on the gerber files, you can go ahead and solder the components. (I will add detailed instructions later). The components you need are listed in the component section of this project.
