8x8x8 3d RGB LED Cube

March 20, 2011.

Over the course of roughly 2 years starting May 2009 I built a 8x8x8 RGB LED cube. You can see the quick specifications in the info box to the right.

You can see all the posts I made during the build of this cube if you click the below link:

You can visit my blog's web album to easily see the photos all in one go:

This is the best quality youtube clip I have so far:

This post in particular is about as much of a "round up" as I've done, it outlines what I did and thanks to whom.

It all started when I found a instructable to build a 4x4x4 led cube

Then I started experimenting with RGB LEDs

(Unfortunately I lost the youtube clip on that page)

Doing this made me decide to build a 8x8x8 RGB LED cube out of 10mm LEDs.

You can see some early build photos before I started this blog here:

That's when I decided to start blogging instead of trying to keep track of it on a web page.

So programming, in particular more patterns is really all that's left for me to do. I'm planning to spend some more time on it but I'm not a very strong programmer so it's tough going. I've got a few other projects already on the go, nothing this fancy i must admit, but it's making knuckling down to hard core coding pretty difficult. So i'm on a little bit of a hiatus at the moment.
