Ks0182 keyestudio LED Cube Kit

Introduction

For ARDUINO starters, we’d love to do projects that would blow people’s mind off. But without certain basic knowledge of electronics,you may find it difficult to do complicated projects such as robots, 3D printers etc. This 4x4x4 LED Cube kit we developed is no doubt your best choice.

So what is LED Cube? Well, by the name of it, we can tell it may be a light emitting cube. We use 64 LEDs to solder a 4*4*4 3D-matrix. Each face of the cu¬¬be or should we say each dot of the cube will emit beautiful light.

This 3D LED cube is based on ARDUINO, an open-source environment. So it also has features of open-source and easy-to-use. Even for enthusiasts without solid electronic knowledge, you can make projects that are going to amaze others!

Features

  • Adopts 64 blue LEDs
  • working voltage: 5V
  • working current: 150MA
  • power input with built-in voltage step-up circuit
  • compatible with ARDUINO open-source hardware
  • comes with animations program
  • Simple assembly using a PCB frame
  • can work off-line (doesn’t require a computer after program is uploaded)

Step by step soldering instructions

Solder the stand horizontal plates

thumb
Unpick the stand horizontal plates as shown above.


thumb
Unpick the horizontal holder boards following the previous step.


thumb
Set four nuts in in the kit as shown above,then put four stand horizontal plates on the soldering jig,
and black lines on the stand horizontal plates aims to indicate the place of subsequent soldering holder boards.


thumb
Place the soldering jig on four nuts, and then put two horizontal holder board on the stand horizontal plate between
black lines, and finally add tin to fix them on eight welding spots by soldering iron.


thumb
Stand soldered by eight welding spots above.


thumb
Continuously solder four stands as above steps.


Install upright stand

thumb
Every upright has its own place and can’t be installed mistakenly, so before installing confirm the place of every upright.
As shown above , Upright A must be inserted in the aperture on the Chassis A, and Upright B must be inserted in the aperture on the Chassis B.
Continue like this until eight uprights are inserted in the aperture of corresponding letters on the chassis.


thumb
As shown above , place properly four horizontal plates in the same direction, and install Upright A on the gap. Don’t add tin to solder after installing.


thumb
As shown above , install respectively Upright C, E, G according to the previous step.


thumb
As shown above , install Upright B on the gap. Don’t add tin to solder after installing.


thumb
As shown above , install respectively Upright D,F, H according to the previous step.


thumb
Tighten four copper bushes in the control board by using four 3M nuts.


thumb
After the stand inserted the chassis, adjust them to be vertical.


thumb
According to last step, add tin to solder the bonding pad between horizontal stand and upright by soldering iron.
If there is bonding pad on horizontal stand but not on upright, don’t need to add tin to solder.


thumb
After soldering all bonding pads, please check carefully whether there are welding spots lacking tin. Welded finished product as shown above.


thumb
As shown above, fix four copper bushes on Acrylic chassis by four3*6 inner-hexagon screws.


thumb
Install four Acrylic side plates in the slot of Acrylic chassis.


thumb
Next, install Acrylic crown sheet according to slots.


thumb
After installing , upset it according to above picture, and then lock tightly Acrylic chassis with Acrylic side plate by using two 3*10 inner-hexagon screws and two 3M nuts.


thumb
As shown above, a tightening chassis.


thumb
Then tighten the screws of Acrylic crown sheet, and as shown above, it is the finished product after installing.
