Introduction: 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:
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)
-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:
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:
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
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.
