LitSimulate is a simulator which simulates what LitSpin will display. We developed the first versions with PyOpenGL and PyGame.

Image Format

Each 3D image is represented by a classical image. If we note r the radial resolution (total number of columns), h the number of LEDs by column and n the number of steps by rotation, our image dimensions are rh x n. In our case r=20, h=32 and n=128. So we have 640×128. One line represents the n points one led will display. And each block of h lines represents the 360° image of a column from the outermost to the innermost (from 1 to r).… Read more
