Hello, I'm building an 8x8x8 LED Cube from www.instructables.com/id/Led-Cube-8x8x8/. The author uses 8 74HC574 ICs and 1 74HC138 IC. I would like to use 74hc595 shift registers for the multiplexing since I have plenty already, instead of the types the author used. The instructions does give Arduino code which is great, but I don't know how it needs to be changed to use the 74hc595 ICs.
Can someone who is more familiar with these ICs change the code for use with 74hc595 shift registers? This would be a huge help and greatly appreciated. Also does someone have a schematic of how the shift registers are connected and cascaded so I know I'm doing it right?
The Arduino code can easily be downloaded at https://www.dropbox.com/s/u2xwny9ajyflg6l/arduinocube.pde
Thank you for your help. Matt
