Adding an LED to the bottom of an AB-BN toolhead



I have a recently built 2.4r2 that I ended up using the AB-BN toolhead on, as I like the cooling design and the fact that it fully supports my Dragon HF hotend.


But I was wondering how difficult it would be to add 1 or 2 LEDs at the bottom, maybe on the accent color front piece or something? Has anyone else thought about this? If a model doesn't exist I may try to craft up something and see how it works. I think a couple tiny LEDs on the end pointed down would help illuminate the printed part.

I've been spoiled with my Geeetech Mizar S as it has an LED on the bottom of the toolhead and it illuminates the extruding filament so I can see how it's going easily.

I should go ahead and start working on that as the next phase of my project

Stealthburner is a great addition and a must in my humble opinion. The neopixels in the toolhead with the associated config file does it all.
