New Guide! NeoPixel LED Menorah via @BlitzCityDIY @ecken

Build a 3D printed Menorah that lights up with NeoPixel LEDs and CircuitPython. A push button allows you to light up a NeoPixel LED on each night of Hanukkah.

Learn Guide: https://learn.adafruit.com/neopixel-menorah/

This minimalistic design features parts that snap fit together and print without any supports. The assembly is modular and easy to put together.

The bulbs are 3d printed in translucent PLA and the NeoPixels are fitted inside the candle holders.
