4x4x4 LED Cube Individual Layer control

Our very important festival of lights is going to happen on 25th Oct. and so I'm making a 4x4x4 LED cube that i have already soldered i want to control the individual layers by using the transistors can any one suggest me a circuit and can anyone provide me a diagram of connecting those layers with transistor's and finally controlling it through my Deuminalove or UNO.

Will this help?

Hi Chris i have already used the same instructable to make the Cube but it cannot make you control individual LED's but it controls just the columns so it isn't sufficient

By the way Thanks!

Hi Nishant,

I guess I don't fully understand what you want to do. Yes the Instructibles example won't let you control all 64 LEDs directly, but you use multiplexing to fake it.

Can you maybe give more explanation and I will try to help you out?


Did you try this Nishant?

Not my greatest looking schematic, but it gets the idea and the contro method across.
