Introduction: USB Powered,bluetooth Controlled,3D Printed Ambient Light!

Picture of USB Powered,bluetooth Controlled,3D Printed Ambient Light!

Get some atmosphere in your room with this 3D printed ambient light. It is bluetooth controlled, so changing colers is fun and easy.

I was inspired by this instructable:

https://www.instructables.com/id/ArduinoAndroid-BL…

I used the code and the android app as they are on the page above.

So i basically just designet the 3D printet parts and added more RGB lights.

Step 1: What Will You Need?

You can get all the parts on ebay for cheap like i did.

-Arduino Uno (nano…)

-bluetooth module HC-06

-RGB lights (i used common cathode)

-USB cable

-and of course a 3D printer to print all the necessary parts.

Step 2: Wiring

The wiring is as simple as it gets.

Bluetooth module hc-06:

VCC—>5V

GND—>GND

TX—>Pin 10

RX—>Pin 11

For common cathode RGB see picture.

I used 6 RGB lights, you can use more or less, just connect them in parallel.

Step 3: The Code

Here is the code i got from this instructable:

https://www.instructables.com/id/ArduinoAndroid-BL…

For more details on the code and app follow the link.

Step 4: Print All the Parts

This are the parts i desined in sketchup.

I made a difuzor for the top, but you can use the light without it.

The difuzor is made out of one of the layers from a broken LCD screen that i got laying around, you can use paper aswell.

I printet the parts with PLA

205 °C nozzle

60 °C bed

120 mm/s

I forgot the hole for the USB cable so i just drilled one later.

Step 5: Connect to the Light

First you power up the arduino board. Then go on your phone into bluetooth and find the HC-06 module. If asked for a code tipe 1234 or 0000. Next you go into the app and click on the bluetooth icon where your hc-06 module should show up, click on it and you are connected.

Have fun!
