TBH it looks like you gone from Zero to Hero in the past 10 months AlanI didnt know a thing 10 months ago about all this arduino stuff, I've gone from zero to this in a few months. I am willing to help if yu want to have a bash, or I can do one for you. Im in Leeds, helps if you're nearby?
Hey not too far away - get down to Leeds for a weekend and we can play some pinball and also put together a display circuit. the arduino Nano boards are more than eough for these sorrt of projects. If you want to do LED strings andd then LCD or 7 segment displays then an arduino Uno or even the Mega boards are a bit more meaty and have more inputs and outputs. The nano boards are like £3 each, then mega boards £8 - so none break the bank.TBH it looks like you gone from Zero to Hero in the past 10 months Alan
I’m in Sunderland which is not quite local enough to pop in and if it was I’d be having a bash on your LOTR which has eluded me over the years and of course POTC . Lucky you!
As for the light box the woodwork side would be a doddle for me and TBH I would love to have a bash on the lighting as it sounds like it will either stimulate my brain cells (what little I have) or drive me nuts hehe
Do I order any specific Arduino board and are those string leds the best option after your experiments over the past month
Hey sheet happens and I’m in no rush we will get there in the end \o/Im still on with the lighting project. I am waiting on parts from china, should have arrived this week, but apparently the items have not made it through customs for some reason, so order cancelled, start again - wait 3-4 weeks. grrrrrrr
Reminds me about your translates... I found them so will keep them around. I’ll do this stuff when I’m 2 handed againHi, I've now got the software to a level that I'm happy with and finally the right parts arrived from China yesterday, so, I've made up 2 sets of translite lighting kits.
See this video for details of what's included and what you can do with it.
The parts costs to me are:
String of 50 RGB, LEDS £9
Wifi arduino processor £5
Power supply board £2
Power Pack £4
ProtoBoard, sockets, connectors, wire, solder £2
As well as the parts, It then takes me a couple of hours to make up the board, install the software, set it up and test out each unit.
Not looking to make any money out of the first couple, just cover the parts costs
So, the first 2 - £25 each to include UK postage.
Please lmk if you want one.
