  • My guess is the backlight for most LCD displays. Some of the newer ones have LED zoned backlighting, but most of them have a panel with two light bars along the edge.

  • Is it possible to replace the flat cable? I have a project I've been working on for a while, trying to find a transparent OLED display, but I need the flat cable to go from the display at a 90 degree angle, and be a little longer.

  • I've always used OpenSCAD for modelling. I don't do much with organic shapes, as I'm typically creating boxes, columns, and other things that have a defined shape. I find OpenSCAD good for this as you're building things with basic shapes, either intersecting or carving shapes with other shapes (cubes, cylinders, spheres, etc.) to get the item you want. You're writing code to build these items, and it gives you very precise control of the item's dimensions and shape for 3D printing, so you can design based on the limitations of your printer (mine is pretty old). It has more complex features as well if you need them, and you can build items as modules, allowing you to re-use the items instead of repeating code.

No public wish lists :(
