Random question as I ponder starting a Kicad project. Are there any collections/share sites for decent starting points and references to designs?

I'm looking to combine a few functions on one board, and basing them off of known good schematics done by others would save a decent amount of getting-going time. Things such as a basic USB hub, and the oh-so-popular relay boards with optical isolation. Ethernet switch is probably too complex for this iteration.

I guess a curated or peer-reviewed thingiverse-like community is what I'd ideally like to see, where noise/quality can be kept decent.

+Dave's Dev Lab +Drew Fustini, got pointers or is this just a pipe dream?

I 3D printed a frame and mounted three ULTiM8x8 panels into a half cube. I have it fully 3D mapped, and have it scrolling noise and palettes in any direction!

If you'd like to build and play around with one of these, please consider supporting their crowd-funding campaign: https://www.crowdsupply.com/maniacal-labs-wyolum/ultim8x8

Code: https://github.com/jasoncoon/esp8266-fastled-webserver/tree/ultim8x8

*Disclaimer: I have backed the project, and they did send me a set to play with, but I have no other stake in this campaign.

Here's a great video of the #ULTiM8x8 by Jason Coon running #FastLED
+Justin Shaw over at WyoLum was kind enough to send me an ULTiM8x8 (actually an ULTiM8x24) set to play with! Of course I immediately got to work on it. I added some female headers, assembled it with a hex wrench, plugged in an Adafruit Feather ESP8266, and uploaded my FastLED ESP8266 Web Server app. It works and looks great! I created a couple of quick patterns just for the 8x24 matrix layout and shot a quick video.
