Can anyone show a comparison betweeen manufacturers spectra and one made in Spectralab with DIY spectrometer? I donĀ“t find any LED spectrum here that seems to be right on SpectralBench!

The spectrum won't match. White LEDs don't produce constant light over the whole visible spectrum, unless you get expensive ones. There is typically a rather dramatic dip around 500-550 nm.

Manufacturers of commercial instruments usually have tungsten-halogen lamps which have more constant radiation over the visible range and all kinds of fancy software. But you pay for it.

Switching the the DIY spectrometer to a tungsten halogen lamp will help, but the software is still behind.
