I’ve done some preliminary sketch ups of my led layout for the icosahedron. I have decided that having 10 parallel strips of 72 leds divided into 3 sub sets of 24 leds would give me the versatility of being able to address each strip by itself or each sub set by itself. However, since it’s a 3D icosahedron, there are 12 vertices with 5 strips either going out of or coming into each individual vertex. If I want to be able to have an animation that traverses the icosahedron, choosing a random strip to travel down once it reaches a vertex, how would I do that? Should I have a lookup table or pointer array for each vertex? I’m just not really sure how I should go about thinking about the code.
Also, I will eventually use the OCTOWS2811 shield for the teensy but I’m not at that point yet. I’m still in the rough prototype design process and will streamline everything later. Below i have included some rough sketches and notes about the layout of the leds and what I want them to do. If you have any questions regarding clarity or you can’t read my handwriting please ask!
