Subbed, can't wait for more.

I also have my HW2-disc still lying around somewhere... Although I never use it, as it's in my local language, and I prefer the English version of it XD

Been a very long time since the last update. Really sorry about that, guys. Check out the design layer section for updates. Finally, I have completed it, and I'm ready to move on to the LED lighting!

Also, I have a few other updates for the electronics section, but I'm in a bit of a rush, so I will update that later. EDIT: Done

That design layer's ambition is super nuts!

Congrats on completing the first stage!

I've got a few more things to take care of, such as the LED lights, the wiring, and creating hardware mounting plates with the sheet of steel I purchased, but once that is all taken care of, I'm hoping to begin planning the hardware purchase.

Electronics layer section updated. Two new photos. LED setup is progressing nicely.

Did have an issue with a tiny section on one of the strips for the wing though. Must have been a bad solder point during manufacturing, so green was not working, unless I pressed down on the affected area. I used my precision knife to expose the copper strips on the back of the lights and ran my soldering iron across them. Solder must have flowed back into place. There is another small area where blue does not work, but I doubt I'll notice it. I'll see what happens when all the lights have been hooked up.

I feel proud of myself for essentially becoming a soldering novice. Though I have a feeling my respirator is not designed for solder fumes...

Update: All LED strips have been attached and soldered. I'm happy my bedroom won't be filled with solder fumes anymore (or at least, nowhere near as much as it was).

Next up: Getting all the LEDs powered! The plan here will be split the LEDs into one of three groups. These will be the left feather pieces, right feather pieces, and the rest. Each group will have a solderable breadboard which will be used to combine the groups of wires into just one. So the 13 sets of strips from the left feathers, which each have four wires (+, R, G and B), total 52 wires. These 52 will be combined so that all similar wires are combined, and a single set of +, R, G and B wires leave. A fourth breadboard will then receive this set of four from the other three boards and connect them to the LED controller, switch, and power supply. The boards will also double up as a place for me to wire resistors to fine tune the brightness of each individual strip, ensuring that the lighting is evenly distributed across all the acrylic piece.

I'm currently waiting for my next round of supplies from ebay to arrive. Resistors, heat shrink tubing, and heat gun, among other things.

Ummm well this is interesting! biggrin.gif Subbed

Well, I ditched the idea of the breadboard. Between my questionable soldering skills, and the god awful ugliness of the cables, soldering, and hot glue on the breadboard, I decided to put a stop to it before I could make it any uglier than it already was. Ripped everything off, started over, and used grounding bars instead. Looks so much better, and while it doesn't compare to certain photos made by OCD, wire-laying IT nutjobs, there is a little bit of cable porn happening behind the scenes.

I didn't order enough bars, so after creating the hubs which are explained in the latest update at the end of the electronics section, I was left with just half the required bars for the primary hub, which meant, I could only get one colour to work. I chose blue, as it is the only colour without problems. I have three LED strips that aren't working properly. Probably due to my poor soldering skills.

The number of meals I have skipped to get this far shall remain classified information. But hey, some good news! With the completion of the LEDs nearing, it is almost time to get the hardware sorted!
