A SIMPLE 4*4*4 LED CUBE USING ARDUINO NANO


Step 1: Get the Materials

Step 2: LET's Make the Cube

make a rough layout in cardboard or wood

drill 5 mm holes using 5 mm drill bit(here i am showing 5*5*5 JIG)

Prepare the LED's

before soldering test all led's with multimeter

use pliers and make a 90° bend in cathode (- ve)

and again bend 90° (see the pictures)

keep repeating this until all of your 64 LED's are prepared

insert 16 led's in jig and solder all anodes together

each layer consists 16 led's with a common anode(+)

make 4 layers like this

now solder cathodes together(first coloumns cathode solder to the first coloumn cathode of second layer )

finally we get 4 anode layers and 16 cathode coloumns

Step 3: Circuit Diagram

from bottom

LAYER 1 CONNECT TO ARDUINO PIN A0

LAYER 2 CONNECT TO ARDUINO PIN A1

LAYER 3 CONNECT TO ARDUINO PIN A2

LAYER 4 CONNECT TO ARDUINO PIN A3

COLUMN 1 TO ARDUINO PIN A4

COLUMN 2 TO ARDUINO PIN A5

COLUMN 3 TO ARDUINO PIN D0

COLUMN 4 TO ARDUINO PIN D1

COLUMN 5 TO ARDUINO PIN D2

COLUMN 6 TO ARDUINO PIN D3

COLUMN 7 TO ARDUINO PIN D4

COLUMN 8 TO ARDUINO PIN D5

COLUMN 9 TO ARDUINO PIN D6

COLUMN 10 TO ARDUINO PIN D7

COLUMN 11 TO ARDUINO PIN D8
COLUMN 12 TO ARDUINO PIN D9
COLUMN 13 TO ARDUINO PIN D10

COLUMN 14 TO ARDUINO PIN D11

COLUMN 15 TO ARDUINO PIN D12

COLUMN 16TO ARDUINO PIN D13


Step 4: BASE FOR CUBE

make a cardboard base

Step 5: PROGRAMMING

HAPPY MAKING

THANKS

    Question 5 months ago

    How did you solder coloums together I have problem with because my cathodes are not bend in exact same shape .So i have hard time to figure out how to get it together.

    It's very clear to do. Thank you very much. But may I have a question I don't have Arduino Nano, so can I use Arduino Uno?
