I am currently working on a new frame to make the project more adaptable. As I don't want to have too many wires to solder on my Teensy board. It's probably now time to move to LED drivers. 

Several years ago, as I was building some LED Cubes, I used to play a lot with STP16CP05 a lot. 

Those driver are very easy to use and program. Moreover, they can drive 16 outputs and you can add as many STP as you want in serial (exactly like the WS2812 RGB LED system). 

To make it work, 

You can find a test code on the GIT of the project.
