This is a project I choose to work on to keep myself busy for a little while and improve my soldering skills. I did not have any programming knowledge at that time. That was something I would worry about after I build the LED cube.
The LED cube consist out of 512 frosted 4mm blue LED's with 16mm leads. The LED's where advertised to have 25mm leads which would have made soldering a bit easier.
The soldering has been completed but the hardware and software to control the cube is still on my to do list. I have tested the cube with basic control per layer and some simple animations.
The goal is to address each LED (pixel) individually and create different animations.
Planned hardware for LED control:
