8x8x8 Led cube, Parts help? Answered
Ok, Ive been debating this for a long time, and I already bought some of the parts, But Im trying to figure out what else I need.
So far, I have"
Computer power supply
Prototype board from radioshack with copper eyes.
Two way screw terminal
3 - 20 pin IC terminals (I know I need more, but 3 is all radioshack had at the time)
2 - 16 Pin IC terminals
1000 uf Capacitor - 6.3v
100 uf capacitor - 10v
33uf capacitor - 6.3v
A push button
3 status led's (Red, Green, and yellow)
I also have 18 gauge aluminum wire for the layers.
I have a spool of rosin core solder (I hope this will work, I dont wanna buy more)
And Im going to get 1000 blue leds off ebay. with these specs:
Size (mm): 5mm
Lens Colour: Water Clear
Forward Voltage (V): 3.2-3.4V
Wave Length(nm): 465-470
Luminous Intensity : 11000 - 12000 MCD
Life Rating: 100,000 Hours
Viewing Angle: 20-25 Degree
Max Power Dissipation : 80mw
Max Continuous Forward Current : 30mA
Max Peak Forward Current : 75mA
Reverse Voltage : 5~6V
Lead Soldering Temperature : 240°C (<5Sec)
Operating Temperature Range : -25°C ~ +85°C
Preservative Temperature Range : -30°C ~ +100°C
As far as the rest goes I have NO idea what I need. Im going to be using my arduino with it, And im not 100% sure how to change the current instructable here to work with it. they dont specify.
Any help would be really appreciated. Ive wanted to make one for a LONG time :D
