Hello,

I am looking for PixClips as shown at:

http://www.seasonalentertainmentllc.com/store/en/home/269-pixclip.html#/

I tried ordering some from Seasonal Entertainment without luck, they never shipped I am wondering if anyone has any extras laying around that they would be willing to sell. I need a 100 or so. Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

What are you mounting the clips to?

They were designed by Rainyoregonchristmas, you can contact him to see if another vendor is going to be carrying them.

I have some news for those still seeking Pixclips. I have procured a limited supply of the Original Pixclips. I will have more information available in a week or so for those who needed some to complete their frames"

I heard that this fell thru and he did not get them.

I need them for a wireframe snowflake. I have been trying several avenues. I am just hoping someone has extra that they would part with.

Ouch, I just bought a 3' wireframe star at the expo from ChristmasLightShow.com planning to use the Pixclips. Anyone have other suggestions? I could do tie wraps but it's not the best option on wireframes :( Wish I had thought of this before I bought the star.

I don't have any wireframes but a clip could be drawn up and 3d printed pretty easily

How many do you need? IF it's not many and IF you can't find a supplier....hand sketch up something with some dimensions that will fit your needs of your own design. Maybe someone will throw something together you can have printed :)

It could be something as simple as this, pixel clips into one side and the other side clips onto the wireframe, if you dont need the other portions of the clip then no reason to have them there, but it can always be added as well. Or if you prefer the pixel to face the viewer than I can adapt my pvc/bullet clip and it would have the pixel mounted facing the viewer.

Similar to what I came up with. He's got bar stock though, which is easy enough to change. If you can find someone to print them, someone with a printer can push these out fairly fast.

Clip above will fit 1/4" round stock, changing my pvc clip is just a matter of making the clip size smaller on one end.

LOL... He's using..bar stock not round stock. You did the same thing I did..I just focused on "wireframe" and did a round snap point

LOL.. Bar stock is flat ...round stock is round. Like I said...I sent him something and I did the same as you and thought round. Please don't be offended at all....

The pixclip looks like it clips to like 4 different materials.

This is the star I bought so that clip would probably work great. Do you have the stl files so I can try printing some? I can print but have no idea about designing and building the stl's.

Thanks!!

What's the diameter of the wireframe? 3/16"?

Sorry, I missed a bunch of posts, yes Doug showed you the prop and it is bar stock, so that was what I am looking to attach to. Once it arrives I can get measurements. I didn't think of 3D printing, but have to look into that.

It is 1/4 thick by 1 inch wide bar stock.

Hey guys, it's been a LONG time since I was on this site. With about a dozen pages sites to monitor, this one fell by the way side. Sorry about that. As far as the pixclips, yeah, the deal I had worked out fell through. As far as new production of clips, I'm working on that. It's quite a blow to loose out the way I did. I don't wish it on anyone.

As far as the Pixclip design, it does fit four different media. 1/4" x1/2" rectangular bar stock. 1/4" round stock, 550 paracord, and .025" x 3/8" poly banding strap. The pixclip 90 design fits 1/4" x1/2" rectangular bar stock exclusively.

If you would like to message me, please communicate with me in my "Rainy Oregon Christmas" facebook page. I check that most frequently.

Sorry the clips are in short supply, no one saw this closure coming.

-Matt

Just thought I would share, this was posted on the green site early this morning:

"I have found a solution, details in a few weeks. Looks like the clips may be back baby!!!"

Is that in Thingiverse?

Somebody asked me to come up with something... This is what I ended up with. Fits nice and tight on the flat bar and the 12mm clip is clipped on tight as well. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1752083

Yup, the Pixclips are coming back. The whole process takes awhile. I'll have an ETA of their completion of things hopefully next week. Once they're done, I will be shipping them USPS flat rate which takes at most 3 days anywhere in the US. So I'm HOPING I'll have them in hand before the end of the month if not sooner. Please be kind and patient, it isn't easy doing things over again like this. It has been very stressful, but I've lived through the heartburn and restless nights and yeah, we're back!

Mindtrick, I might have a non pixel clip item I would like to get printed. Holds my sun visor in, and they want you to buy a whole new sunvisor to fix their poor engineering.

Also I have a unique need for a pex holding clip around my garage that needs to click over the flashing somewhat like the bar stock and then take a 90 to hold the pex.

What I have been doing is using binder clips and a zip tie. It works, but would like something more native looking in the application. Will send you a photo tomorrow on facebook.
