We always try to support different levels of assembly skills, this time we think we nailed them all with a single design.
Starting with a 3 inch circle, we placed 12 LEDs around the edge, a very easy to solder board.
This is not your 1st board? Looking for more of a challenge? We have 5mm holes that by bending the LED legs the LEDs are visible from both sides.
Looking for something really spectacular? Checkout the 3D Sphere variant of this design.A second board can interlock with the first, forming a sphere of 24 LEDs.
But wait, Dale wanted support for 10mm LEDS, so we added support for them too!
With so many options, take a look through the assembly manual to decide how you want to build yours:
- LEDs on the front
- LEDs alternating front and back
- LEDs on edge (radially mounted)
- LEDs through the board
The design has two buttons to select the pattern. Like most of our boards it has the IR emitter and receiver for two way communication to other blinkie boards. This blinkie design was introduced in 2009 at Duckon 18.
Some beginners (and some experts) have had trouble soldering the four battery holders and the mounting pin to the board. The circuit boards come with these components already soldered on.
