  • Big, auto dim, room clock (using arduino and WS2811)

    PLEASE I need some help. been at this awhile and can't get it to work right. I have the LED's setup and soldered ( WS2812B ). I am using 5 leds per segment (35 per digit plus 2 for the dots). I wave a UNO wired up just like the project shows. The sketches I tried to use are not working ( I have tried to modify the code with the proper amount of LED's that I have but I cant get the darn thing to work properly.All I get are some leds coming on but that it. But then again I'm not sure what sketch to use because of the different led's that some of the sketches use. I am attaching a few pics to show what I have. Again please help me to get this thing working before I am completely bald! 8)

    Sorry for being a noob but I really want to build this clock. I have a bunch of WS2812b leds (30 per meters) The info at the the beginning of this instructable shows a Arduino nano V3.0. I have 2 Arduino uno V3 and a Leonardo. Will they work with this project? I still have to pickup the RTC but that should not be a problem. I went back through all these comments and I see a bunch of codes. I tried to cut and copy the codes but then it looks like some of the codes are for WS2811 that will not work with the WS2812b. I cut and paste the code from abdelhadj's post from About 2 months ago (because the code has "WS2812"in it but get a error.In file included from C:\Users\Rolie\Documents\Arduino\WS2912CLOCK\WS2912CLOCK.ino:4:0:C:\Users\Rolie\Documents\Arduino\libraries\FastLED/FastL...see more » Sorry for being a noob but I really want to build this clock.
