Custom parts and enclosures

STL files

There is no need of support in any part except in body.

Schematics

Circuit diagram

It's not that difficult, if you know how to connect a LED and a push button with arduino. You can easily do this too.

Connect LED on pins -1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,A0,A1,A2 and A3
connect push button on pin 2
Connect power on VCC and GND pin

All done!!

Code

LED effect

Arduino
This code contains only one effect and that's why I am not using push button as well
int LED[] ={0,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,A0,A1,A2,A3};
int Max= 16;

void setup() {
  //pinMode(mode, INPUT_PULLUP);
  for(int i=0; i<Max; i++){
    pinMode(LED[i], OUTPUT);
  }
  }

void loop() {

  for(int i=0; i<Max; i++){
    digitalWrite(LED[i], HIGH);
    delay(50);
  }

  for(int i=0; i<Max; i++){
    digitalWrite(LED[i], LOW);
    delay(50);
  }
}
