I build an led cube with 512 LED's. You can make 3D image's with the cube.

Lots of (dutch) info on my website www.ojeke.tk
<p>Just in case anyone comes by here actually looking for an instructable on LED cube construction, I'll post links to mine here.</p><p><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/CHRs-8X8X8-LED-Cube-Revisited-with-improvements/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/CHRs-8X8X8-LED-Cub...</a><br>single colour cube<br><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/8X8X8-RGB-LED-Cube/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/8X8X8-RGB-LED-Cube...</a><br>RGB Colour cube<br><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/5tYwl-zKIcw" width="500"></iframe><br><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/psMFvBiWBbE" width="500"></iframe><br></p>
That's a lot of LED's <br> <br>I Went to Radio shack online it's about $350 for new LEDs
ebay - 1000 LEDs for about $20. NEVER buy parts from RADIO SHACK unless you have no other choice!
Yeah, you're right. <br> <br>But to be should check to make sure the LED's work before you use them. <br> <br>
Never had a problem...and for $20, even if 25% of them were bad, you still have all you need plus some, and save $330 in the process.<br>I don't think I've had a bad one out of the bag, but I destroyed a few in the soldering process - which is why it's better to have extras!
There are links to the suppliers I used in <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/CHRs-8X8X8-LED-Cube-Revisited-with-improvements/" rel="nofollow">my instructable</a>.
CAUTION -- WARNING-- DO not open the guys web site. it wants to down load something from adobe but it also down loads and installs about 6 other junk programs.
if you are looking for an arduino / ATmega32A based cube, you can see CHRs instructable, which is referenced in my instructable which improves on his.
Your website link forwards to a scam. Do you think you could fix that?
Can i have the code ? I would really appreciate it :) <br>trinhgia1993@gmail.com
Here is a time-lapse video that shows me making my LED cube 8x8x8.: <br>https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&amp;v=gTZJOy70rrc <br>
even though i can't understand Dutch but i know very well that your site is very informative, but a million people will have gained more from it if it was in English
Wow, great job. Two questions: Is this programmed on arduino, and how much do 512 LEDs cost?
no, it is not programmed on arduino. I built this 5 years ago, arduino didn't exist in that time.<br><br>It is programmed on a pic, 16F648. To load the program in the pic i used a wisp 628<br><br>The LED's cost 2 euro for 100 pices. http://www.leds-buy.nl/index.php?ref=6<br><br>ojeke
Actually, arduino existed 6 years ago but hey, who's counting?
OK, it was not very populair here in Belguim in that time :)
Well, you can get 100 LEDs of any color (and even RGB LEDs) from Sparkfun for $20. The pricing even goes down as you order more!
Oh, you need a full step-by-step instructable for this, plus a video of it running.<br><br>
