We are attempting to create a spinning LED display (which layers of LED spin around an axis showing various shapes) capable of displaying 3D objects from all directions on a cylindrical shape. Our display can include basic shapes such as cubes, tetrahedrons, and spheres. Finally, our display will be able animate such shapes moving.

Project Overview

We are attempting to create a spinning LED display (which layers of LED spin around an axis showing various shapes) capable of displaying 3D objects from all directions on a cylindrical shape. Our display can include basic shapes such as cubes, tetrahedrons, and spheres. Finally, our display will be able animate such shapes moving.


Objectives

1.Design a mechanically robust device that will house the components including Arduino, batteries, and LEDs. 2.Position each component so the device is capable of displaying basic 3D objects on a cylindrical volume 3.Develop an algorithm to control when each LED turns on and off during the display cycle 3.

Challenges

  • Having a mechanical design that has a center of mass around the axis of rotation
  • Mount the device on a motor
  • Build a device so the wires are not entangled while device is spinning
  • Wire connections do not break while device is spinning
  • Ensure that device spins at constant rate
  • Determine ideal rpm for device for visual display
  • Mounting battery and Arduino on the spinning portion of the device
  • Mounting Frame unto the motor

Budget

  • Mega Arduino: $0 - provided
  • Electrical Tape: $8.99 (w/out shipping fee) [1]
  • Insulated Copper Wires: $14.01 (w/out shipping) [2]
