How to Build a flexible LED Display Soften by LED Strips CHEAP and Easy


Here we going to show you how to build a FLEXIBLE "ROLL AND FOLDABLE" LED Display. cheap easy and very useful



TOOLS .: You don’t need that much tools and spare parts the most important tools and parts you need are.: Side cutter (sharp) Screwdrivers mix (cross, slot, big & small) Hot Iron (sharp tip) Solder (thin) Heat gun shrinkable tubing Puncher (to hole the Plane) Detergent (cleaning)

For first you going to buy, order or just collect all the needed Components for this Project, the most accessories are Optional means they’re modified for my project you can change the accessories like color waterproof or none of the led strip, color of the controller, The Surface you can change to different materials or colors.

We offer all the accessories and assembling parts for this project and many other LED projects (TOP PRICE TOP QUALITY incl. WARRANTY) so we will assist you for questions and Price inquires.                   CHECK OUT OUR LATEST PROJECT XXL WS2811 LIVE TRANSMITTION


Step. 1

For first prepare all your assembling parts:
Cut 2cm shrink tube pieces (soldering place)
Cut the connection wires or each strip
Cut shrink tube pieces cover it over your wire connection (use the heat gun to make them tight)
Cut your Power +red and ground wires you need (for the controller and for the Power supply)
Create a LED file in your software we send you by the assembling kit and transfer it to the SD card to proof if everything works well

Step. 2

Calculate the length of the LED strip you have to cut, depend on your requested LED DISPLAY END SIZE !
Remind to include the vertical distance of each string line into your calculation.
Example.
Strip Length , Strip width + your customized distance of each string. Means
if you want to build a 1000mm high display go on like that. 1000 / strip width + distance = how many strip lines you have to cut !
Now you’re able to cut your calculated numbers of LED strings on your requested length.

Step. 3

After you cut all the strings place it to a flat place which is convenient for you to work on it I prefer a table .
Place the strips flat in position if it’s easier for you fix each one to the table by tape. !
Use the hot iron to soldering one by one strip don’t change the wires, we also offer fast connectors to connect the strip without soldering It’s just the cheapest way but racially not the fastest.
Soldering the strips in a series circuit means the start of the first strip is every time INPUT, you can start everywhere you want with the INPUT but later in the software you have to change or setup. !
Don’t forget to cover a short 20mm pcs shrink tube over the strip before you soldering the wire otherwise you have to remove the solder again and cover the shrink tube it’s easier to cover them before.

Step. 4

After you solder (connect) each strip with the other and make a short test give the strips power and try a test with the LED file and its successful, cover the shrinking tube over the solder place and use the Heat gun to make it tightly and secured.
After use the heat gun you should bring the strip lines and the connecting wire in ENDPOSITION hold it by hand till the shrink tube will become cold and tight after some seconds it’s tight and will not move again stay in position. !
Step. 5

Now you move the strip construct by side, add your Plane surface to the Table, and clean it careful.
Place your LED strip construct to the surface.
BRING IT IN POSITION use the meter stick to fix each distance that the strip construct later Placed well in exactly the middle of your surface.
Now you can fix the first LED strip line peel the paper from the backside of the strip (glue), hold one side to the up and start from the other side to fix it.
Use your meter stick or caliper to recheck if your strip is straight in position..!
IMPORTANT.: If you start to place the first line awry the deviation in the end will be much bigger and later show each awry placements and BIG deviation.

Step. 6

Now you fixed the whole LED construct to the Surface it’s time to check it again, connect it to power again, if workable we go on like that...
Use the Puncher to place a little hole EXACLY under the start of the LED strip Input, put the input wire through the hole.
Place the SD controller on the backside of the surface by adhesive tape double sided, connect the wires from the input with the SD controller, connect your power supply and you’re done.

Step. 7

Join, sell, rent, advertise and so on…. There are many ways to get out your invested Money Time and Power of this Project.

  27. Love the light curtain. I have a 2 foot by 6 foot
    Display of model ships. I would like to have a mat
    Of LEDs the ships could sit on and be able to beam light up on them to slimulate the ocean waves. Do not need the text part. Can the ship bases sit on some of the bases? Would like to remotely brighten and dim and leave running 24/7 as a night light in living room. Would this pressure of the ship stands harm the light curtain LEDs that are covered? Is it safe to let this run 24/7. I would need to be able to use standard America 110. Can you build it for me or send me list and where to buy? Please email me at bcs1162@aol.com. Subject boat lights thank you

  32. Hello, I am interested in building a 72 inch tall by 72 inch long weather proof LED message board to mount to a trailer. Can you send me pricing for a unit built by you. The unit is for the US so it should be UL and run on 110 Volt. The unit will be powered by a trailer mounted generator. The unit must be able to be programed with different messages and images if possible. We will take care of mounting the unit to a trailer here in the US but would like a fully functioning unit that could be checked by plugging into a 110v power source before mounting on the trailer. The unit should be double sided so that messages can be viewed from both sides of the roadway when being towed. Please contact me back at nyrhky@gmail.com Thank You David
