Arduino Led Controller

    Control an Led strip with an Arduino

    Below are the parts and instructions needed to assemble, program and control and LED strip. This is not very practical in any way but was a great way to get into laser cutting acrylic, program menu and sub menu navigation with only one mechanical encoder with integrated pushbutton on a oled screen.

    Parts needed:

    Arduino mini pro-http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9218

    Arduino USB Programming board-http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10277

    4Dsystems OLED display-http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8537

    Digital Addressable RGB LED with PWM- http://www.adafruit.com/products/306



    Enclosure:



    The enclosure starts off as a 3D model created using Solidworks. Once everything fits properly then a DXF file is created for the laser cutter.









    Small plastic angle from the local hobby store drilled and threaded seems to work ok. 




    4-40 screws were used all around.




    The screw threads touch when assembled so spacers fixed this problem.

    Code:

    Attached are four files:
    -assembly.sldprt (SolidWorks box assembly)
    -uOLED.zip Arduino code (still very buggy)
    -laser_panel.pdf (pdf file of the dxf file for the laser cutter)
    -laser_panel.dxf (dxf file for the laser cutter)
