The LEDs in these strips are spaced 1.25 inches apart. The scrolling display it makes is sufficiently large to be seen a hundred meters away or more. The WS2812 LED strips are not quite bright enough for the mid-day sun but at night and at twilight it’s very good.
The display is constructed of 7 60 led strips. The 60 leds allows for 10-12 characters to be displayed at once.
A step-by-step procedure for using Wings3D to create a 3d model for use in KiCad is presented. Each step is completed with sufficient detail to provide an introductory tutorial on the use of Wings3D. The model is then configured for use in the KiCad PWB application.
