Rostock MAX easy led light ring.
I made this ring because I didn't have any loose 1watt leds but I have plenty of the led light strips. So that is what I used. Ring fits on bottom of platform with one extra hole to run wires through. My hot end still has 2mm to surface below the light ring, so I am not worried about impact. Also the light ring as designed only lights the surface of the part and I can look at it without being blinded. Not too much light but enough too see well.
Printed file in ABS, then used the below. and some 20ga 2 conductor stranded wire Led Light Strip 12v 300smd leds (16ft roll) Cut off 3 sections (6") of the roll and then secured it on the inside of the ring with Loctite Go2 Glue (Higher temp tolerance) http://www.amazon.com/Strip-light-Waterproof-Flexible-Light/dp/B005EHHLD8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1387130459&sr=8-2&keywords=led+light+strips
