1) Shopping list

The gear led requires :

2) Wiring

The Wiring is simple : There is 3 pins on the PCB :

  • the 5V goes to 5V
  • GND (ground) goes to the ground
  • Din (DataIn) goes to D16 of the arduino (but it can be configured in the code)

 

3) The code

In the code, you just need to :

1 – Activate the LedPanel : replace  //#define LEDPANEL by#define LEDPANEL

2 – You can eventually change the data pin by changing  #define LEDPANELPIN 16

4) 3D files

The 3D files are on Thingiverse.

I've been passionate about cars since I was a kid! I learned the multiple variations of the Skyline R34 through the Gran Tursimo series, until I discovered GTR2 at the wheel of a keyboard. A few years later, I plunged back into Sim Racing with a G27 which made me enter the DIY world. Always looking for an immersion out of reach in reality, I develop projects that I take care to make accessible to any 3D printer owner!
