Looking for ARGB LED Cabinet Edge Effect Like This...
« on: November 17, 2022, 11:23:11 am »
Where can I find info or source parts to achieve this kind of sweeping 'cat eye' effect without individual LEDs visible? I'd like to upgrade my cab's non-illuminated t-molding but assume this effect requires extra depth thus is hard to retrofit to a standard cabinet edge.



... as opposed to traditional transparent T-molding like this.

people been trying for years to make LED illuminated tee moulding and its execution has never been real great.

always have hot spots from the leds and fitment issues

about the best you can do is EL wire under transparent moulding, but EL has always been hit or miss and often degrades...

look into "LED neon strip" and see if you can find something you could make work... it would likely require removing a fair bit of material, but look not too bad if you think it would integrate and you had the right area to put it.
