About: im Hessam. im work with Unity3D and 3d Modeling with Cinema 4D and 3d priner . i love Technology and Electronic.

Intro: LED MAGNET BOX (Light)

show how work

Step 1: Led Magnet Box 3d Printer

Led Magnet Box 3d Printer

Step 2: What Need

4 X led smd 5050 for Each box

1 X Mini 360 H DC Step Down Power Module Lm2596

1 X slide micro switch 12mm

4 X Neodymium Magnet 8*2mm Circle for Each box

1 X usb micro board

4 X diode IN5819

Step 3:

Step 4: 3d Models

now go this https://goo.gl/qmB78N

and download 3d models and print whit abs and you dont need suport for printing

Step 5: Solid Magnets and Use Super Glue and Solid Led

solid magnet

Step 6: Solid Leds

afte solid 4 smd led you can use .

Step 7: Finish

one usb box you can power all magnet box

Step 8: End

pls like and share .

    Where did you buy small LED lights? Can you send me a link?

    Thank you!

    hi and tanks for comment .

    you can search this (100pcs 5050 SMD Chip LED Diodes warm White) in google and find to buy .

    I'm surprised soldering directly to the magnet didn't demagnetize it. Usually its recommended not to solder to it because of that issue, but looks like you managed. Nice project!

    Any info about these ?

    And why do you use a Step Down converter :/ ?

    usb power is 5v and led smd 5050 is 3.2v and we need convert 5v to 3.2 . Each side we have 2 magnet Each negative and positive because This we need diode Bridge for Every cube . i know diode Bridge for convert ac to dc but fix negative and positive Problem. tanks for comment and sory for my bad english.

    Ohhh, they are 3.2v..i thought they were 5v leds. And about the diodes ? What are their characteristics ? Which model are those ?
    Thank again for explaining this to me :) And cool instructable btw!

    I can't follow this at all...I guess you need some existing knowledge about the concept and parts used.

    No, it's just a language barrier issue. Understandably, English can be a challenge.

    To reiterate:

    1&2) Get all needed parts (listed)

    3) 3D print the models linked on his Thingiverse (roughly a box)

    4) Solder wire (this appears to be enameled motor winding wire?) to the backs of the magnets (2 per box) and Superglue them into place in the 3D printed components.

    5) Solder the same wires onto the LEDs across all the pads.

    6) Connect up the electronics as shown in the picture (USB input --> DC Converter --> Switch) and (DC Converter --> LED leads) for the first box. For additional boxes, solder wires between magnets and LEDS in series (Magnet --> LED --> Magnet) so they can be stacked.

    Hope that helps! :)

    Question 2 months ago

    Really neat!

    Is polarity an issue? In other words can you orient them so that they connect with the magnets but don't light up? Have you thought of using a bridge rectifier between the magnets (+/- power bus) and the LEDs. That way regardless of bus polarity the LEDs would still light.

    even though he has not described it, but it appears that he has built a bridge rectifier from discrete diodes - you can see it among the images in Step 5.
    With this design you will have to use a bridge rectifier because you will have to use opposing magnetic poles on either side of the cubes otherwise...
