- 1x NodeMCU
- WS2812b LED-strip ~4m
- 5V Power Supply (10A)
- 3d printer
October 2019 Update:
Step 1: create a 3d model and printing
Step 2: Preparing for painting.
Cut connectors, put them inside the box and cover with tape
Step 3: Primer/Painting
if your 3d model is red color, than it's better to use grey primer first to avoid too many layers of white painting)
Step 4: put LEDs strip inside
connect led strip
then I realised that with 5 pin connectors would be everything much easier and cleaner.
with 3/4 pin connector you need to be more careful when you connect one hexagon to another.
Step 5: checking if everything works
Step 6: making top part
It is easier to scoring and snapping plexiglass, but since i wanted to save some space and I used saw.
Step 7: setting all together
glue top to the main part / cut the fiber vinyl / apply it to the top
Step 8: Arduino & Blynk
To upload code you will need to add NodeMCU library to Arduino software
Go to files and click on the preference in the Arduino IDE
click OK to close the preference Tab.
