Im looking for some dense/close LEDS for some light poi’s im building.
Is there anything >144LED/m?

Look up @Ashley_M_Kirchner_No 's posts here. He’s designed custom boards for very dense LED packing for POV poi.

Mine are about 166/m (it’s really 166 and 2/3), non-flexible (meaning they’re on a hard PCB.)

What type of leds are they Ashley? and how fast are they?

(Ashley M. Kirchner [Norym]) #5

Standard 5050 RGB driven by LPD8806.

Would running two strips of 144/m adjacent, but offset (so the LEDs on strip 2 are between the LEDs on strip 1) work?

Gets you out of doing custom work :wink:

I tried that. At least for my application it didn’t look good. You don’t get sharp edges.

I looked through your page, and your light poi look pretty amazing…
With all that im reading now, it looks like this project is too much for me… :frowning:
