Thanks for the confirmation.
(I was suspecting this but was unable to test more precisely to note the difference)
Also, while my eyes can see the “hotspot” and “corona”, I can’t seem to get that image taken with the camera, even when adjusting settings manually (I’m no expert in camera adjustment settings though, so maybe there are settings that can allow a camera to take a better picture of the hotspot/corona thing…
I tried 3D printing a centering ring for my L21B NM1 since the original one was a bit loose around the LED and was constantly losing its centering.
I admit it’s not the cleanest. On the one hand using a circular hole for the LED might be better to avoid torquing the emitter while tightening the bezel, but on the other hand the square hole seems easier to center if the dimensions aren’t perfect.
I used 1.2mm like above for the gasket thickness. Unfortunately I didn’t do before/after measurements, but the corona looks nicer and it was much easier to center when reassembling, compared to the original gasket. Hopefully it holds up to the heat of the LED, it’s only PLA plastic so it may not be ideal.
By the way, did you ever get around to tuning the gasket thickness for the S2+? Does a thicker gasket improve the throw?
You should get a decent bump in range at 1.2mm. I never bothered to try any further tuning of the S2+ , I had no reason to since I doubt Simon would bother and I don’t have an S2+ of my own, they’re all for sale and I certainly don’t want to make a custom gasket for those, takes too much work without a 3D printer
