3x3x3 LED PVC Light Cube using Arduino

This 3X3X3 ft. LED PVC cube is the ultimate in mood light fun!   An LED (light emitting diode) will burn longer than traditional bulbs so that you can enjoy your giant light for a LONG LONG time. Build it and see!

Step 1: WARNING!!!

THIS PROJECT WILL COST ABOUT $150
Also…. make sure that your dimensions are planned ahead so that you can fit it through your door after you build it!  (Uh… not that it’s from personal experience, really).

Step 2: Gather your tools

You will need these tool to make the instructable:

hot glue gun
soldering iron
wire strippers
scissors
a drill (manual or press) : press works better
ruler
PVC cutter
a caliper is also very handy

Step 4: Fabricate the custom PVC parts for the cube

First,  you need to fabricate the independent custom parts. Remember….”measure twice, cut once” – in other words, double and triple check your work before cutting.

*To make the T’s:  Cut a hole in 8 of the pieces on the side of the piece as picture 2 illustrates.

* Cut 24 of the 32 pieces in the place indicated in picture 3.  Do NOT cut the pieces through all the way to the 2nd wall.

* The last pieces to be fabricated are the rest of the four ways (that should be 8). They DO  need to be cut all the way through.
