Led Cube 4x4x4 With Max 7219




First excuse my english :)

Hello, I wanted to make a 4x4x4 cube, but I know nothing exadécimal
So I took a arduino uno and a max 7219

Amazing 3 dimensional LED display.

64 LEDs makes up this 4 x 4 x 4 cube, controlled by an arduino and max 7219

Each LED can be addressed individually in software, enabling it to display amazing 3d animations!

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: What You Need

64 led

Brass wire

one max 7219


one arduino uno

Step 2: Instruction 1

As you can see, I have separated the LED module into 4 equal party and I visualized them one above the other. like this A, B, C, D.
and will connect the (row and col) pin on the MAX 7219

Step 3: Instruction 2

1. each hole for LED is spaced 1 inch center hole.

2. as you can see, the brass wire is soft, ready inserted between two clips, stretched to sharply.

3. folded all anode.

4. sorry I forgot to take pictures during the welding step

but if you watched on another picture, you'll understand

Step 4: Instruction 3

all, the connector are on the outside.

Step 5: The Code

all the (void), are in the individual part

at the end of the program, there is a void like this

void loop()

{ allume(); ferme(); ligne(); plateau(); aleatoir2(); mur(); cube(); plateau2(); vague1(); ligneverti(); cube2(); axe(); aleatoir(); elice(); roue(); vague2(); vague3(); diago(); tunel(); serpent(); }

Step 6: Finishing Up

Hope this helps someone!
I had a sleepless night

It took me a while to understand how to do this,

Feel free to comment Thank you, Merci

    I can't see what size LEDS you have used, or the
    type does it make a difference?
