A support for your headset is a bit special, it has an internal light in addition to having a USB connection based on the support.
The light in the support is programmable, eventually you could choose the color of the light as well as the animation of the LEDs.
It is possible to reprogram the Arduino Nano to make other lighting effects, but for now, we will focus only on one configuration.
Standard STL file:
STL LED and USB file:
Simple support assembly
We’re going to start with something easy. The assembly of the support without electronics.
The assembly is very simple.
- Insert the head of the guitar into the rectangle at the base, make sure you are on the right side.
- Screw both M3 7mm screws and voila, it’s over.
Assembly of LED and USB support
Now cut an LED strip that will contain fifteen LEDs, be careful to cut the LED strip in the right place because you are going to have to weld at both ends of the LED strip. Weld the three wires (red, black and any color of wire), the length of the wires will be 20 cm, before welding them, notice well the direction of the small arrows on the LED strip, your wires must be welded in the same place as in the photo. On the side of the small arrow it will be the black wire, in the center it is the wire for the data and at the other end it is the 5V.
Connect the two red wires together and another 10 cm red thread, then weld them together and put a shrinking sheath to secure it all.
It’s almost the same for black wires, except that in addition to a 10 cm black wire, you’ll also take the black thread from the LED strip, still the same case, weld them together and then install a shrinking sheath.
For the following, I will try to be as specific as possible, but if there is confusion, refer to the diagram above.
Download the file to program the Arduino Nano.
- Board: “Arduino Nano”
- Processor: “ATmega328P (Old Bootloader)”
- Port: “COM (communication port number). Example: COM5
- Click “Manage Bookstores”
- Enter “Adafruit_NeoPixel” in the search bar
- Choose the latest version and then click “Install”
- Click on the arrow to start the program tele-payment at The Arduino Nano.
You have to close Cura because you might have a communication error when you are going to program the Arduino Nano.
