Laser-cut stands for the Freetronics Dot Matrix Display

It's always great to see our products "out in the wild" - whether they're used in interesting situations, or if our customers have added value to them. One great example of this is by Instructables member switch62 who has published details on making a nice desk stand for our DMD Dot Matrix Display units.

The stands are assembled from laser-cut pieces of 3mm acrylic sheets, and go together to form the stand as shown below. Furthermore there's mounting holes to keep an Arduino Uno or Freetronics board tucked up neatly behind the display, making the entire unit relatively self-contained.

For more on this neat stand including relevant design files, visit the Instructable page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

As used in the project mentioned above, check out our Freetronics Dot Matrix Displays. They're simple to use, yet very bright for indoor and outdoor situations. Available in various colours, the 32 x 16 LED matrix can display text and graphics quite easily - and can be daisy-chained together for extended displays.
