In this tutorial I’ll show how you can create your own LED Cube 3x3x3. I’m sure you already saw some similar projects to this one but you never took action and made your own. Now it’s time to make your own!

Parts Required

  • 1x Arduino Board
  • 27x LED’s
  • 1x Stripboard
  • 3x 22k ohm Resistors
  • 9x 220 ohm Resistors
  • 3x NPN Transistors (for example: 2N2222, BC547, 2N3904)
  • Wire

Download the Arduino Library

IMPORTANT: You need to download an older version of the Arduino IDE in order to compile/upload the LedCube Library to your Arduino board. Go to this page and download version 1.05 of the Arduino IDE for your operating system

Then follow these instructions:

  1. Click here to Download the library
  2. Unzip it to the Arduino libraries folder

If everything is correct you should find an example in the Arduino software under File > Examples > LedCube > ledcube.
