LED's for ALL Blue option. Need advice...
« on: April 05, 2016, 02:12:36 PM »
Hey everyone! Noobie here, I'll try to make this quick

I'd like my first lightsaber to have the full range of blue. For example, I'd like an arctic blue-type shade on one sound font and royal blue on another sound font, and medium blue on another and so on...(6 sound fonts, and 6 shades of blue)  and white for FOC
I guess I gotta go with RGBW, right?? Or is there another combo I can use?
I have no use for any other color on this saber besides all blue and white...

any thoughts?

(if I do go with RGB, I'll probably make the FOC yellowish or something  just to make use of having RGB)

Sorry if this is not the right place to post, please let me know to change it

Are you using parts form the custom saber shop? Tri or Quad led?

To get what you want on a tri you could go G/Rb/W  G+Rb would give you cyan, and a brighter blue, plus the white for FoC.

Do you think that would give him enough variance for blues? A single die on its own wouldn't be as bright as the rB G mixed. I guess you could also run rB W too or even all three.

I was thinking about this recently, I'm thinking about changing my rB/rB/W in my NB3 build to rB/B/W, see how the blues mix. Also thinking about doing a G/rB/B to get the widest range of blues/brightness

That's what I'm going to do on my next saber.

Great minds eh? Have you ever experimented with mixing different blues? Looking forward to seeing it if I don't get around to trying it myself first :)

yea I haven't decided yet on which parts to use. I wanted to see what would be the best way to do this. I didn't even know there was a "quad" 
guess I have more studying to do.

My next graflex is going to be setup this way.  CF8+Cex Quad cree G/rB/B/W. Add in RICE for color mixing on the fly.

I just built a graflex with this setup and I'm pretty pleased with it..  :smiley:

What about a B/G/W?

Would this be a good combo to get a nice ANH Cyan?

I have a lot to catch up with in regards to LED tech, not to mention everything else!

My most hi-tech saber is the Graflex I converted in 2008 or thereabouts, and it's got what I think is a Lux V, bin 1 or 2 Cyan, and a PC 2.0

I'm wanting to rebuild, possibly using a new chassis (my last was a custom made myself), brighter LED, different battery setup, CFv8, etc...

Is this a custom 6 or 8 star you are using that's individually addressable? The best way I know of is to combo your Royal Blues with different temperatures of white LED's with your flash on clash being the brightest LED.
