LED Matrix Studio 0.9.1 November 25th 2018


The LED Matrix Studio is an application designed for electronics enthusiasts who want to speed up the development of their LED and matrix projects. It supports many different export options, animations and different sizes of matrix.

Use the software to design fonts, graphics and animations for your PICAXE, PIC, Arduino, Parallax and any other electronics or microcontroller projects.

Comes with example Arduino files demonstrating use of exported data.

I have used this with Sure Electronics 32x8 and 24x16 LED boards, Adafruit 8x8 bicolour matrix, custom LED matrix, and generic 8x8/5x7 single colour matrix.

download the latest version as a zip file The zip archive contains the application, a couple of sample matrices, presets and an example arduino project (for the Adafruit 8x8 bicolour matrix).
source code for the latest version Download the Delphi 2007 source code for the latest version.
