Color Addressed Dithering Anyone?

Posted · Color Addressed Dithering Anyone?

Greetings fellow netizens of the hiveMind...

I want to make a print that dazzles in response to color cycling of an LED strip.

I'm thinking this must already exist, I'm just unaware of it, so if you know of it please point me to a web page. I've got an Adafruit neopixel strip, 8 LEDs long, that can create RGB light (that's R, G, and B light in narrow spectrums each if it matters). I also have Red, Green, and Aqua filaments in translucent PETG. Not blue, just aqua but close enough I hope. Also some processors to drive the LEDs including some ESP8266 chips on HUZZAH boards for making web interfaces.

Anyway, long story short I'd like to make cool Christmas gifts by using the different colors of the LEDs to illuminate a dithered or otherwise color-mixed image so that a hypnotic effect or a motion effect or both is achieved. it could be sort of like a lithophane made of colored panels or somesuch... not really sure where to take this idea yet.

Does anyone have familiarity with these concepts?

Les

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
