In this project I create a 10x10 RGB LED Matrix. This project took around 8 hours of soldering. I would and wouldn't recommend this project. It takes a very long time to make but the finished product is very mesmerizing.
Step 1: Gather Materials
Step 2: Begin Assembling
Start tinning the solder pads of the LEDs.
Once done tinning, Drill holes for LEDs in the wooden board. The holes are around 1.7cm apart.
Step 3: Assembling and Soldering
Glue LEDs in wooden board.
Next, solder the wires on the LEDs. This will take a very long time to finish.
Step 4: Finishing the Build
Once everything is cut, start gluing the sides and foam into the panel. The foam is 18.7cm long.
Last step is the code. FastLED does not work with RGBW at the moment so you have to use Adafruits Library.
