The bare LEDs of an LED matrix can be harsh on the eyes, and some displayed things, like letters, can be difficult to read at times. This is a diffuser/divider grid designed to fit a 32×16 LED matrix. It turns the bright matrix dots into square pixels. A cheap source for these matrices is the pixel purse they sell on Amazon. You can buy a purse and extract the matrix for less than half the price of buying a matrix on its own.

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!
