Testing out the idea of casting hot-glue light pipes into 3D prints, directly onto PCB. This is for directing the light from "side-firing" LEDs onto and through the PCB, for keyboard backlighting.

So, it shapes nicely and sticks well. Only I need to use both ports to fill the whole area, and maybe add air vents. LEDs arrived, I can try woth them now!
