Size matters

A project log for Analog Blinken Grid

64 LEDs in a matrix on a wireframe controlled by 16 astable transistor oscillators to resemble a computer panel from a 70's TV show

To get a feeling of the actual size of the grid at different spacings I decided to print a few samples on paper (and taped together to full size).  I tried 30mm, 25mm and 20mm spacing.

My original though was that 30mm maybe was a bit on the small side, bu after printing it I discovered that it rather was too big.

I settled for 25 mm (about one inch) between the 5mm LEDs.

Around the grid of LEDs there will be a frame made out of two steel wires for the power distribution.

Then the oscillators will then be freeformed and put between the grid and the frame.
