Whilst building the spires tonight I had an oops moment – the spire wrapped itself around the vice as it fell off the bench :(.
I also made a start on 3d printing a load of diffusers for the LEDs.
Although I’m (very) late to the game I do like LED cubes and thought it was about time I joined in with the fun.
Initially i was thinking of a 10x10x10 RGB LED Cube based on 5mm LEDs most likely built on a PCB base.
On the LED side of things using RGB LEDs seemed to be the norm but all those wires look to cause both a major soldering task and they also get in the way of viewing the LEDs. Having recently seen the NeoPixel / WS2812B on Adafruit I thought I’d try try using those although they may need some diffusion since the light only comes out of the top of the SMD LEDs.
