Component list: Protoboard. for status leds 1x resistor 10k 4x resistor 2. 16 resistors for leds.0. but do it so fast that the eye doesn't recognize that only one layer is lit at any time. Now if i want to light up the LED in the upper left corner in the back (0.1uF ceramic capacitor 2x 22pF ceramic capacitor 1x crystal 14. I used red and green.step 1: What you need First of all. we get a 4x4x4 3d image! http://www. If we flash 4 16 led images one at a time. This ghosting effect is impossible to workaround without adding 64 individual wires. or equivalent. A lot of leds! step 2: Multiplexing How to control 64 LEDs without using 64 individual wires? Multiplexing! Running a wire to the anode of each led would obviously be impractical. (optional) Max232 rs-232 chip.3).. if I also want to light up the bottom right corner in the front (3. If i only want to light up one led at a time. I also light up the upper right led in the front (3. All the LEDs on a horizontal layer share a common cathode (-). When I supply GND to the lower layer and VCC to the front left column. The way to work around it is to only light up one layer at a time. All the LEDs aligned in a vertical column share a common anode (+). and the lower left LED in the back (0.instructables.0). The type with copper circles. is to split the cube into 4 layers of 16x16 LEDs.3.) Knowledge list: Basic electronics and soldering skills Know how to program an AVR microcontroller .

This wire supplies VCC to all the leds in this corner. I found that 25mm (about an inch) was the optimal distance between each led (between the center of each led that is!) to enable soldering without adding or cutting wire.5cm on. Make dents in all the intersects with a center punch. so I chose to use the LEDs own legs as much as possible.Image Notes 1. Drill the 16 holes. All the leds in a layer have their cathodes connected together 4.instructables. This wire supplies GND (-) to layer 1 of the cube. You want 90 degree angles! 2.. Nice and square http://www.).com/id/LED-Cube-4x4x4/ .. Each of the 16 vertical columns have a resistor to avoid frying the LEDS and the microcontroller 7. All the cathodes connected together 5. I wanted to make the cube as easy as possible to make. step 3: Making the cube.. Draw up a 4x4 grid of lines. Image Notes 1. Punch holes so the drill doesnt travel sideways when you start drilling out the holes Image Notes 1. All the leds alligned directly above each other have their anodes connected together 6. Acurate measurements 3. Your ledcube template is done. Find a drill bit that makes holes small enough so that the led will stay firmly in place. 3. template Soldering grids of 4x4 LEDs freehand would look terrible! To get 4 perfect 4x4 grids of LEDs. Draw up the grid 4. 2. All the LEDs in this column share anodes (+) Image Notes 1. and big enough so that the led can easily be pulled out (without bending the wires. we use a template to hold the them in place. All the LEDs on this layer share cathodes (-) 2. Find a piece of wood large enough to make a 4x4 grid of 2. This wire supplies GND (-) to layer 0 of the cube. The distance between the lines in the grid was decided by the length of the LED legs.

step 4: Making the cube. Holes punched out Image Notes 1.com/id/LED-Cube-4x4x4/ . solder the layers We make the cube in 4 layers of 4x4 leds.instructables. enable the pins to just barely overlap. http://www. Create a layer: Put in the LEDs along the back and along one side. and solder them together Insert another row of LEDs and solder them together. just perfect for soldering. then solder them together. LEDs fits nicely Image Notes 1. add cross bracing in the front where the led rows are not connected. Repeat 4 times. Do one row at a time to leave place for the soldering iron! Repeat the above step 2 more times. The distance of 25mm between the center of each hole.Image Notes 1.

Bend the cathode leg (the short one) of the LED 90 degrees to one side.Image Notes 1. anode 3. and would be bent out of shape if removed from the template like this. See the next image. 3. http://www. anode 4. Start by aligning and soldering the outer edges 2. just leave it for now. anode 5. cathode 6. All the cathodes (minuses) have been soldered together. Since we bent all the cathodes in the same direction. cathode 2.com/id/LED-Cube-4x4x4/ .. The layer is pretty flimsy in this end. 2. there will be one sticking out to the side. anode Image Notes 1.instructables. Image Notes 1.

This is the distance between the cathode wires. so choose the prettiest one :) Put another layer on top. When they are perfectly aligned.instructables. If not bend a little to adjust.com/id/LED-Cube-4x4x4/ . This will be the top layer. connecting the layers Now that we have those 4 layers. Add a barcing to this side to make the layer more robust. Hold the corner in place with a helping hand and solder the corner anode of the first layer to the corner anode of the second layer. Or re-solder of it's the height distance that's off. Take a straight piece of wire and solder it to all 4 cathodes. and align one of the corners exactly 25mm (or whatever distance you used in your grid) above the first layer. all we have to do is to solder them together. Repeat 3 times. http://www. Do this for all the corners. Put one layer back in the template. Image Notes 1.Image Notes 1. solder the remaining 12 anodes together. Check if the layers are perfectly aligned in all dimensions. The finished product step 5: Making the cube.

Let the led cool down before applying heat again. Be fast.instructables. be carefull with the soldering iron when soldering this close to the LED. Again. Start with the corners 2. Start in the corners Image Notes 1. 4. If you make a mistake. http://www. Image Notes 1. Anode 3.com/id/LED-Cube-4x4x4/ . cathodes connected to layer 2. then solder the rest. Same anode wire connects to the led directly above.Image Notes 1..

solder the circuit. depending on the size of the circuit board etc.com/id/LED-Cube-4x4x4/ . You also don't want to exceed the maximum current your leds are rated to. That is IC2 and all the components connected to it.. Future firmwares will enable PC communication.instructables. This gives us 12mA to work with per LED. The RS-232 interface is optional. I won't give any more instructions on this. I used 220 ohm resistors on my cube. as the circuit probably will look very different from cube to cube. Start by laying out all the components on you circuit board in a layout that enable all the components to connect with a minimal amount of wires. 1) The LEDs 2) The AVR The AVR has a maximum combined current rating of 200 mA. Information on how to wire the cube to the controller circuit is in the next step. and can be omitted..step 6: Choosing resistor values There are two things to keep in mind when choosing a resistor value for your leds. step 7: The controller The circuits controlling the led cube is described in the attached schematic image. This gave me about 12mA per led. If everything fits. http://www.

us/img123/3724/fmyfnd2feahe8uucopycc8. 10:01 PM REPLY http://www. 4:13 PM REPLY Yes. 11 and 31!!!!! how can solve this? and the AVR_prog block. what is this? image: http://img88. 4:58 PM REPLY Yes I could do that.. 4:29 PM REPLY MatheusLPS says: make one circuit by hand. in Proteus you must put the file code.. I think that a schematic in order to make a printed circuit and etch it.br image: http://img123. 2008.imageshack..dear chr. I decided to change something here..uol. but what goes where.. 2008. I´m trying to finish this project here...br/disco_virtual/matheuslps86/cube pass: cube you must unrar.. my mega16 dont have the pins 10. But if you want to make a layout to etch a custom PCB.. explain better the process of wring the circuit.. if you have time can you saw my circuit and say if is it correct please? ahhh my e-mail is matheuslps@yahoo. so it won´t work fine. 5:59 PM REPLY hey man i trying this projet here.. it´s seems that´s working.. finallly i wire almost the wires. just the opposite now.. 6:29 PM REPLY Aug 15.. Aug 16. is required at this point! Pictures are fine. 2008. is a bit confusing. but i want to simulante it first! but there´s a problem. can download the file down and see if i made some mistakes!!! :D link: http://discovirtual..com.jpg thanks MatheusLPS says: Aug 15. 2008.. chr says: You don't. look at pic down.hex in the mega16 controller. 1:32 PM REPLY Aug 9. so we can connect correctly all of the components together. if someone uses proteus. 2008.. there says the mega16 isn´t full modelled yet.. 2008.us/img88/659/u67ioicopycv9.... 2008. 2008.com/id/LED-Cube-4x4x4/ .. 2008. there´re dark gaps!! thanks MatheusLPS says: Aug 15.n3m3sys says: Aug 16.imageshack.... then open the file cube. but I can't figure out the connection made in you pictures! All I'm asking kindly is if you can provide a drawing of the circuit at your board.... it´ll be useful . please feel free to share it here :) n3m3sys says: Aug 16.. Send pics :) Aug 11.. 2008.. Please provide one! chr says: I never use etched circuit boards. 7:17 PM REPLY ahhh i find it. 2008. 8:18 AM REPLY well. just double click and link to the path and hit play thanks MatheusLPS says: well man.. please.instructables.. i simulate. 5:31 AM REPLY Aug 15. i think is working right now.. but i having some problems thanksit MatheusLPS says: Aug 16. aff MatheusLPS says: i´m lost here.. i search at help me file of the program i´m using.jpg thanks Noodle93 says: Why do we need resistors on both the anodes and cathodes? I'm planning on making some sort of cylindrical version... I inverted the order of the connections between transistor array and cathodes. 4:16 PM REPLY Aug 16.com..

Noodle93 says: Aug 11. is it use to progreme 16 mega Aug 8. what voltage/current/mcd LED's should I get and which resistors. semi confused but will modify for arduino later. or worse.. 3mcd at 10ma leds or 4000mcd at 30ma leds? I just don't want to finally build this and it ends up looking like a status light.. 11:09 AM REPLY harsim89 says: what is that led in the pic. what a big thing. vuurwerkbar says: wow. If I've got 5v and 40mA per pin.com/id/LED-Cube-4x4x4/ . 11:05 PM REPLY Ok. and I'm using 1 anode lead per pin (as expected). Aug 9. 2008.instructables. 2008. how can you make this? jonross says: the finished picture reminds me of a hologram at the MIT museum. 2008.. no light at all.. 10:36 AM REPLY view all 99 comments http://www. 5:54 AM REPLY Aug 8. 2008.
