So I was reading up on the Adafruit blog and came across Gewfy’s make of a mini 3D printed lightsaber . So I says to myself, “That’s not a lightsaber, mate. This is a lightsaber…” And I have a bag-o-Trinkets, 5v and 3v ones and I am not afraid to use them.
Well, time to investigate further and read up on what he had to offer. I always wanted to make a lightsaber and with the technology available today, it makes it easy to recreate things. I know enough about electronics to be dangerous so this project might not be too hard to tackle. I wanted to make a full size one. Besides, I nae have a 3D printer.
He offers the code for the Attiny85 which he used to build his Neopixel wand. Hmmm, I think I should be able to pull that over and use it in the Adafruit Trinket which I have. I also have some Neopixel strips from my Halo Cortana LED scarf. I’ve got some experience with soldering and working with those Neopixel strips.
