Introduction: 4x4x4 LED Cube, With MSP430, Using Only 3 Pins

This is my 4x4x4 led cube project, done with MSP430, using only 3 pins of MSP, the circuit diagram is shown in the photos, the hardware consists of 3 shift registers, 74595, and 4 NPN transistors...

you can learn how to make a 4x4x4 LED cube by instructables or youtube or some other sites, its easy to make...
but make sure that you make exact same connections as shown in the cicuit diagrams... or else this code won't work in the new hardware...

the hardware can be built as shown in the circuit diagram...

the code is given below, you can changes it and make your own animation with it....

According to what I have put tohether a video led diodes?

What resistors were used ?

Can you send me the diagram ? because on that which is on instructables can not see well. Thank you

Sorry if i am being a bit annoying, or stupid. is there a fritzing diagram or somethig htat can help me with connections?

its okay, you can clear every doubt of yours here... feel free to ask anything...

wat do you mean by "fritzing diagram"?

actually i dont have this project with me now, or i would have sent you a new circuit diagram...

If you havent heard of fritzing, it is definitely worth checking out. http://fritzing.org/home/

You can download it, and you can make circuits on breadboards, schematics and even order custom PCBs from here. i found they do have the SN74CH595 chip there, and i think they have the MSP430 Launchpad, so perhaps this could be useful to you in the future?

how many bits is the 74595. 8 i presumed, but this is just because TI has the sn74hc595. are these the same?

good work, but it seems so messy...
