It Is So Simple To Make Our Own Custom Characters In Led Matrix For That

We Can Use A Simple App Called Pixel To Matrix

By Using This App Everyone Can Make There Own Custom Characters In Led Matrix

From There Own Imagination................ Isnt It Cool

Check This Instructable :) ;)

Step 1: How to Control Led Matrix to Arduino

Step 2:

Do Not Bother About These much Steps These I Have Done To Make Everything More Clear To You

Go & Proceed With The Next Step :) ;) ..........

Step 3: Download the Files

Downloaded These Files ..........

Pixel To Matrix Application :-- http://www.mediafire.com/file/61o1hbqss52ksyt/Pixe...

Code :-- http://www.mediafire.com/file/23n440p13tat3th/LCDe...



Step 4:

Picture of

Need To Extract the Pixel To Matrix App

Step 5:

Picture of

Open The Extracted File ........

Step 6:

Picture of

This Is The Pixel To Matrix App

The App Is Same As That Of 8*8 Led Matrix

Which Has 8 Rows & 8 Columns

Step 7:

Picture of

Click On The Squares To Make Patterns .....

Step 8:

Picture of

Then Click The Generate Button To Get The Code .........

Step 9:

Picture of

This Is The Arduino Code For Led Matrix

Step 10:

Picture of

Copy The Code ........

Step 11:

Picture of

Open The Notepad To Paste The Code ....

Step 12:

Picture of

Paste The Code Here ......

Step 13:

Picture of

Click To Make The Patterns .......

Step 14:

Picture of

Copy The Code ...........

Step 15:

Picture of

Again Paste The Code On The Notepad ..........

Step 16:

Picture of

Continue Making The Patterns In The App And Copy The Code

Step 17:

Picture of

Paste The Code In Notepad Till Your Wish To Display The Patterns Which Was Made In The Pixel To Matrix App

Step 18:

Picture of

Then Open The Arduino Code ........

Step 19:

Picture of

Delete These Lines ..........

Step 20:

Picture of

Then Type byte a[8]= {

Step 21:

Picture of

Then Type byte b[8]= {

Step 22:

Picture of

Type Till byte j[8]= {

I Have j Lines In My Notepad Code

So That I Have Made It To byte j[8]= {

Step 23:

Picture of

Then Open The Notepad & Copy The First Line Of Code

& Paste The Code In The Arduino Code

After Copying The Code Need To Type };

Step 24:

Picture of

Paste The Lines Upto byte j[8]= {

From The Notepad

Step 25:

Picture of

Delete These Lines In The Code ........

Step 26:

Picture of

Then Type

printByte (a);

delay(1000);

Step 27:

Picture of

Type Lines Upto ,

printByte (j);

delay(1000);

Beacuse Iam Having J Lines In The Notepad ...........

If U Have More Than J Lines You Can Type Upto That Line Or Vice Versa .........

Step 28:

Picture of

Type } At The End Of The Line ............

Step 29:

Picture of

After That Click Verify ....

To Check For Any Errors Or Mistakes ......
