No, I have not gone mad. The moons have not aligned. It is not 2012. Judgement day has not arrived.

As DIYC obtains more exposure in the light animation community we find ourselves with more and more commercial product users. Some have been misinformed that commercial product users are not welcome here. Nothing can be further from the truth. Sure, DIYC is geared towards designing and building hardware but that does not me we have nothing to offer everyone. Nor does it mean others are not welcome here. All are welcome and all will always be welcome!

So you buy a controller already assembled and Vixen your way into it and build everything that plugs into it.

What's not DIYC about that. With a LOR plugin for Vixen your going to see more mix and match setups.

I think it's a great idea.

Now if you open up a swap and shop for blowmolds, we gotta talk!

All kidding aside - Light-O-Rama has full kits available which really makes it nearly just as DIY as here - granted it costs a bit more and it's a closed architecture but just saying...

But on your second point - - yeah - - please - - no dedicated Blowmold forums - ever...... :rolleyes:

It states it quite clearly in "Decorations"...

Hey, I can't solder worth a flip so putting my own board togther might not be something I would do....

But build light fixtures?....Build trees, and mega trees and pretty holders for all the sparkely things I have on my roof and in my yard....

Hack into my transmitter so they can hear my voice all over my neighborhood....NOW THAT IS DIY!

Oh, and I use LOR

I'm mixing LOR and Renard this year. Built a mighty-mini LED flood that worked great for Halloween and have three more to assemble. You don't have to build it all yourself to be a DIYer, so an LOR section would fit right in.

I agree that the addition of a commercial products forum will benefit us all. It will attract individuals like Tim, whose mega tree ring I'm mimicking this year :)

The DIYC controllers have matured to the point where the next level of innovation (like floods, strips, etc) goes beyond the controller, and any other sharp minds we can lure in the better!

Good call, Brian!

P.S. I agree with the others...No blowmolds!!

There’s nothing wrong with blowmolds. It seems that its one thing that makes my wife happy about my display.

I just need to figure out how to make them do something else besides just sit there. :twisted:
