This LED Cube is a cool device that enables you to see in three dimensions, and has 512 LED's for 8 layers of 8 rows and 8 columns (8x8x8).
This work requires a lot of soldering. It will be very interesting for sure. You can just follow my instructions to complete this build.

Step 1: Gather the Requirements
Step 2: Draw a Table (7x7) With Squares of 2 Centimetres Each Sides
This is the first step in preparing the fixture. I may have more squares but a table with 7 rows and 7 columns were enough.
Step 3: Stick the Paper to the Cardboard or Ply-wood
Step 4: Make Indentation With Steel Scriber for Easy Drilling
Step 5: Use 5 Millimetre Drill to Make Holes
To accommodate the 5 mm LED's
Step 6: Insert the LED's & Make Sure the Cathode Terminal Is Aligned Out Side
Cathode terminals can be easily identified as shorter
Step 7: Trim and Bend the Cathode Terminals
Step 8: Solder All the Cathode Terminals
Step 9: Bend the Anode Terminal Using a Spacer of Thickness 2 Millimetre
Step 10: Solder the Anode Terminals
Step 11: After Soldering, Carefully Remove the LED's From the Fixture
Step 12: Prepare 8 Units in Total
Step 13: Carefully Insert the LED's to the Female Header Pin's on the Board
Step 14: Connect the Common Cathode Terminals of Each Layer (please Find the Notes in the Image)
Step 15: Connect All the Common Cathode of Each Layer to the Hoard
Step 16: The Build Is Complete Now. You Can Power Up the Cube (5 Volt or Through USB)
