Is your result at turn on or 30 sec?

I get just above 2800 at turn on & 2770 after 30 sec

Yes. All my results are at 30 seconds unless otherwise stated Smile

Hey Matt, have you used your new lumen tube to measure the gbx3590 GT you built? I think the led is rated for 3.6A (14,000 lumen), but the driver can only do 3.2A so it’s not being pushed hard. I’m curious what you measure. At least 10k lumen? Maybe 12k?

I did play around with it. IIRC it gave me right at 14k. This week and next I am doing a lot more serous testing that includes some descent climate control and as many other variables as I can squash so I will re-test that light as well in the batch.

You don’t really need Maukka’s lights since yout tube was already calibrated. I guess it doesn’t hurt to have them, though.

I am currently building one for someone else, the parts should be in tomorrow for it. I am not 100% sure if I will have enough diffusers left to build another 3.5” after that but I think I will have just enough. I will contact you when this one is finished and let you know what I have left.

I just don’t want to oversell before I know for sure I can fulfill the order.

I should have enough for a few 4.5” left worst case since they didn’t sell as well and I have more parts left over for them.

I got his made and after going through all the extra parts I found a few that had minor mistakes from the laser cutter that I didn’t use the first time around but should work just fine if I mix and match them to make them fit.

So I have the parts to build 1 more 3.5“sphere and a few 4.5” spheres.

I also suppose I could cut the 4.5” parts down to 3.5” if desired as well.
