Creating 3D LED light displays

Was wondering if any TD gurus have tinkered with driving LED displays. Trying to figure out a way of using TD to create something similar to this

Not sure if some type of Arduino could be used to drive the LED’s, and whether TD would even be a good choice.

There ARE off the shelf solutions, but they are VERY expensive, and want a solution that is hackable.

I read this thread which was a huge help
[Seeking advice on using TD with display of 7000+ LED Pixels)

but was hoping for some more detailed input on specific approaches.
