 ===== The driverboard ===== ===== The driverboard =====
 +The ''​driverboard''​ is the PCB which connects the Arduino to the LED cube. 
 +I designed the PCB in a program called [[http://​​|Eagle]]. This software is really good for designing PCBs and schematics but unfortunately the free version has a limit on the maximum size of the PCB you can design. So in the end I actually made the board on a ''​PCB Prototyping Board''​ Actually [[http://​​artikelen.asp?​id=977&​groep=604|this one]].
 +^The schematic^^

 +The finished ''​driverboard''​ in the end looks like this:

-These are the principles used in creating the LED cube, the details ​will follow...+===== The LED cube ===== 
 +The construction of the LED cube is a very tedious and time consuming part, and also the most visible part. So take your time and measure twice, cut once... 
 +Some details of the construction:​

 +===== The Software ===== 
 +The software is still a work in progress, as it should be. Because there are always more effects and animations to create if you have the power over 512 LEDs on your fingertips... 
 +These are the principles used in creating the LED cube, the details ​might follow ​some day... If you have a question regarding this project, you could try sending an e-mail. I might even answer if the question is right.
