Well, since this is the only one in the world, it's for sale for $200,000 ;-) Would love to see someone take the idea and work it into a production model.
All machining was done with either 1/8" endmills or v-bits (for engraving). The CAM software I used was V-carve pro.
I will post a wiring diagram when I return from my trip. The daughter board is a cheap stepper motor driver to drive the motor. The LED's connect through a single pin on the arduino (this is the beauty of the WS2812 pixeltape)!
Great comment and your probably right about the gears wearing down over time. My ultimate goal is to make one of these out of anodized aluminum. Like any project the first one is always a prototype. MDF machines amazing and is easy on tooling and cheap so that's the reason for the choice!
There is probably $30 in MDF plus 4 strips of the WS2812 LED's + Motor and driver and power supply. All together probably close to $200?
Awesome! Do it. Would love to see more projects like this. Super fun.
Thanks for the suggestion and feedback. I'll be travelling the next two weeks and I wanted to get this posted before I left. I'll try to get one posted when I have availability!
