One digit is 190mm long, 110mm wide and depending on what connection cables you use about 12-15mm high and you can combine as many of them as you want. The only limit is the memory of your microcontroller and the refreshrate you want to achieve.

I combined four of them as you can see on the pictures.

It is designed to fit 7 “8 Pixel WS2812b Led-boards” (1 per segment) and therefore can display every color you like and you can break down animations to a single pixel.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
