Creating a Yoshi LED Sign

Parth Doshi

Fri Dec 11 2020

Some of you may know that my online persona is generally named "Darth Yoshi" stemming from my love of Star Wars and, well... Yoshi.

Thus, my initial plan was to create a "Darth Yoshi" sign; however, due to laziness (and filament/paint cost), I decided to ditch the "Darth" for now.

This post will document my journey into designing (read: copying), printing, painting, and mounting this big YOSHI sign onto my barren walls.

CREDIT: Dukedoks and his video on how to design an LED marquee. His idea is brilliant and this post is basically me following his tutorial and making some minor edits (plus putting the instructions in English/text)

And with that, let's begin!
