This past week I’ve mainly worked on the circuitry and coding, nothing too exciting. I’ve also made a few changes to the CAD which I will be 3D printing and doing final testing next week. From here on out I just need to integrate all the working parts which will most likely require redesigning a few parts.
The control panel and orb frame members will all be jet black. Most electronics on the market are made with dark colors which is the aesthetic I’m going for. This is so the customer’s or audience’s attention isn’t taken away from the important aspect of the product, which in my case is the spinning LEDs. If the frame was white or made from clear polycarb it would be distracting and take away from the light show.
