Build a light-up tree with LED noodles, QT Py RP2040 and an AW9523 LED driver. This 3D printed project features eight helical spokes that spiral and taper to form a tree. Each LED noodle fades sequentially creating a subtle effect that brings the lights to life.
The AW9523 LED driver connects to the QT Py RP2040 over STEMMA QT to easily control the LED noodles using PWM with CircuitPython.
Choose from a range of LED noodle colors to create your own color combination. Each easily press fits into the spokes of the tree making a glue-free assembly.
An elegant tree topper sits atop the tree, concealing the various wires. A piece of heat shrink tubing keeps the wires held together and passes down to the bottom connecting to the LED driver board.
