8x8x8 LED Cube Build – WIP!

My Christmas present from my good lady wife this year was a Hobby Components 8x8x8 LED Cube Kit.

Today I started to build it. I was originally going to live stream on Twitch but had a feeling I’d be interrupted a few times during the build and I wasn’t disappointed 😉

I started with the component board according to the instructions here and once that was complete I started on the first of the grids. The build for this was slightly different due to using a supplied 2 row template, but the end result is the same.

Here’s what I have so far:

It’s upside down due to the first grid installed to the board.
The grid side of the board with one grid installed.
Here’s the first test showing 100% success so far.

I’m giving it a rest for today, but will continue to build the remaining 7 grids over the next few days. I’ll post again once complete 🙂
