The plexiglass parts are 3 sheets of 3 mm, one hollowed out internally according to the shape of the flame which is the most advanced part (it measures 155x360 mm with the base widened to 189.4 mm); a rectangular white plexiglass plate of the same size, applied behind it in direct contact or spaced by 5 or 6 mm spacers (measuring 1 mm less than the front one on each side); a bottom plate in black plexiglass of the same size as the front one, to which the LED strips are applied by gluing them with soft double-sided tape or silicone sealant. The 3D printed container is made of black PLA and is screwed behind the rear plate that supports the Neopixel strips and has a rear cover with two flexible button covers cut out to press on the P1 and P2 keys of the FT1120 Business Card (not included).

|The Project "The Flame That Does Not Burn"
The Neopixel LED flame is an excellent gadget to use in multiple situations, easily achievable and customizable. It is ideal for the Halloween party, for the end of year festivities, as a fire simulator for a gothic or slightly dark pub or bar and, why not, the heart of a fake fireplace. The versatility of the project also allows you to create different shapes from the flame, and inserting the LEDs in a pumpkin you can get a bright gadget for the Halloween party, where from the holes, the flames will spread, illuminating everything around with spectacular effects. Of course, what we will get in this case will not be a real flame made to heat, but it will create an atmosphere of virtual warmth with the charm of the flame and its swaying that we will surely appreciate in the gloomy days.
