Introduction: Giant Led Fully Working + Remote Control !
Lux fiat !
I am found of Led but there are so small !! I decided to create a giant one fully workable with 2 mode :
- one with the battery inside
- the second one with an external battery like a giant battery
Of course for a giant led, you need a giant led.
So follow the step and do it yourself :)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Let's 3d Print the Body and the Inside
First thing first, you have to print the 2 parts of the led.
You have the body of the led and the inside that will be able to screw inside the body.
In the inside of the body, I have a 2 holes of 6mm as I added two metal bar for the 2 leads.
You can print the two part in 0.20mm with an infill of 17% and no support required :)
For the filament, I used phosphorescent PLA.
The print will last 6h55 minutes for the body and 4h25 minutes for the inside of the led.
Step 2: Let's Assemble the Lead
I found a matal bar of 6mm diameter so I cut it, in order to have two lead for the led.
I cut a longer one for the positive and the small one for the negative.
I used a saw to cut the metal bar.
Step 3: Let's Solder the Led
To light the giant led, I bought a cheap remote control 5 volts led bar so I can easily used an homemade powerbank to powered it.
I look at the circuit and I only reduce the lengh of the led bar wires and I made my own powerbank with a 18650 battery.
Then it is straight forward to solder the cable to the right place.
Step 4: Play With It !
I shared this quick video to see it is working :)
Do it yourself and give me your feedback !
