Introduction: Led Cube 4x4x4 With Max 7219

Picture of Led Cube 4x4x4 With Max 7219

First excuse my english :)

Hello, I wanted to make a 4x4x4 cube, but I know nothing exadécimal
So I took a arduino uno and a max 7219

Amazing 3 dimensional LED display.

64 LEDs makes up this 4 x 4 x 4 cube, controlled by an arduino and max 7219

Each LED can be addressed individually in software, enabling it to display amazing 3d animations!

Step 1: What You Need

Picture of What You Need

64 led

Brass wire

one max 7219

one arduino uno

Step 2: Instruction 1

Picture of Instruction 1

As you can see, I have separated the LED module into 4 equal party and I visualized them one above the other. like this A, B, C, D.
and will connect the (row and col) pin on the MAX 7219

Step 3: Instruction 2

Picture of Instruction 2

1. each hole for LED is spaced 1 inch center hole.

2. as you can see, the brass wire is soft, ready inserted between two clips, stretched to sharply.

3. folded all anode.

4. sorry I forgot to take pictures during the welding step

but if you watched on another picture, you'll understand

Step 4: Instruction 3

Picture of Instruction 3

all, the connector are on the outside.

Step 5: The Code

all the (void), are in the individual part

at the end of the program, there is a void like this

void loop()

{ allume(); ferme(); ligne(); plateau(); aleatoir2(); mur(); cube(); plateau2(); vague1(); ligneverti(); cube2(); axe(); aleatoir(); elice(); roue(); vague2(); vague3(); diago(); tunel(); serpent(); }

Step 6: Finishing Up

Hope this helps someone!
I had a sleepless night

It took me a while to understand how to do this,

Feel free to comment Thank you, Merci

if I want to make 8*8*8 from the the same circuit... what should I do?

Hello, the base is plexiglass 3/16

what type of material did you use for base because i made the led cube but dont know what should i do with the base to support my cube.

I can't see what size LEDS you have used, or the
type does it make a difference?

Nice work with the MAX7219 IC driven 4x4x4 LED Cube. Not too long ago, we designed an 8x8x8 LED Cube also using the MAX7219 ICs. If you are interested, you may find it at
