3D Zoetrope

Using Arduino Stroboscope to see 3D printed animation

Similar projects worth following
Credits: The original model was by John Edmark. The one I printed was a remix of a model by Gruzdev.


  • 1 × Arduino I used an Arduino Nano, but any 5V arduino will work
  • 1 × IRLB8721PbF (N-Channel power MOSFET) https://www.adafruit.com/product/355
  • 1 × 10K Linear Potentiometer
  • 1 × Single color LED strip Mine was 12V, but 5V is fine too as long as you provde the matching voltage

    //Simple Stroboscope by Hari Wiguna
    
    byte ledPin = 13; // Digital Pin 13
    byte potPin = 0; // Analog Pin 0
    
    void setup() {
      pinMode(potPin, INPUT);
      pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);
    }
    
    void loop() {
     // This controls the frequency of the flashing, smaller delayValue = faster flash.
      int potValue = analogRead(potPin);
      int delayValue = potValue/4;
    
      digitalWrite(ledPin,HIGH);
      delay(2); // How long should the strobe be on.  Larger is brighter, but will blur the effect.
    
      digitalWrite(ledPin,LOW);
      delay(delayValue); // How long should the strobe be off. 
    }
