Building BB-8: Part 4 – Dome Assembly Electronics (Lights & Sounds)

The 3D printed files from the BB-8 Builders Club have 3mm LED slots. I wanted to use RGB LED as it gives me the flexibility to change the colour of the lights. Unfortunately RGB LED are not available in 3mm. I created an adaptor for mounting 5mm RGB LED. I use a 3mm Light Pipe to transmit light to the 3mm slot.
