In this tutorial I’ll show how you can create your own LED Cube 3x3x3. I’m sure you’ve already seen some similar projects to this one but you never took action and made your own. Now it’s time to make your own!
- Arduino UNO – read Best Arduino Starter Kits
- 27x LED’s
- 1x Stripboard
- 3x 22k ohm Resistors
- 9x 220 ohm Resistors
- 3x NPN Transistors (for example: 2N2222, BC547, 2N3904)
You can use the preceding links or go directly to MakerAdvisor.com/tools to find all the parts for your projects at the best price!
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 https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/OldSoftwareReleases#previous.
Then follow these instructions:
- Click here to Download the library
- 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.
