    Long, long time ago (when I still had a lot of hair ...) I made a 10x10 matrix of LED's, but sir, you pwned! Gread work!Cool

    This so cool I started building one of these 2 weeks ago and figured I would build the cube then look for a way to get it working great timing THANKS!

    Great work! What size LEDs did you use - 5mm or 8mm? What did the total size of your cube end up being? I built a 3x3x3 last week using 3mm LEDs I had in stock. Now I really want something bigger!

    BTW, You have my dream job...

    Now imagine the cube loaded in the trunk of a car and connected to a BBS Amplifier. That would be like so extreme <a href="http://www.inchirieriauto.com">:)</a>

    @Ian: I used 5mm LEDs and this gave me a cube which was 16 cm along each edge.  There is a little bit of play in the dimensions as you are manually shaping the legs.

    Hola, muy buen proyecto, me pregunto si funcionará igual con una tarjeta netduino de tamaño normal y en que varían las terminales, ojalá pueda contestarme, Gracias

    Hello, very good project, I wonder if it will work like a normal sizedcard netduino and varying terminals, hopefully I can answer, Thanks

    @PatyTo: Yes it will work with both the standard Netduino and the Netduino Plus.  In fact the original code was developed on the Netduino Plus.  I moved to the Mini as the Mini could be embedded in the project easily.

    Sorry but i am about to build the led cube myself and just looked at your circuit and noticed that you connected the active low pin to VCC, the clock to ground and didnt use a lot of the neccessary pins at all????

    Inspring project! I am in the process of building the cube myself and I got confused by the Netduino mini pinning names as they do not match the pinning I got from the netduino mini schematics. The diagram I got from the open source project lists names such as PWM0 for the IO. You are using GPIO7. Is PWM0 the same as GPIO7?

    This is an awesome project! I have made the cube and working on the controller board. I am planning on hooking it up to a netduino, not the mini. Is there anything that needs to be changed in order for the program to work? After looking at the schematics, the pins do not match up exactly. Could you tell me which pins on the mini you connected the 74HC595s and the 74HC238 to? Thank you!

    these great job done by u, very nice, i like it.
    please send me complete program code of 8x8x8 led cube in speedy. because my in a some error occurs. which type of software you used in led cube? plz tell me. fast reply......

    Nice. But 74HC595 max rated at 70mA, isn't it? So, 70*8=0.56A per layer, 8.75mA per led. But you have made with 25mA per led. Hmm?!. Where am I wrong?

    Can I used 74HC154 instead of 74HC238?
