    Default Now That's a Wireframe

    Now That's a WireFrame
    This is what I have spent the last 2 weeks building. I cannot take credit for the design and would like to thanks Bryce Kindla for allowing me to copy his coroplast design.

    I opted to build a wire frame. It contains a number of separate sections for ease of storage.

    Here are 2 videos
    http://vimeo.com/15826793

    Stats:
    • over 1500 weld joints
    • 35 feet long
    • over 900 feet of rope light
    • over 5000 zip ties
    • Rope light jointed by tinning spt2 and inserting it into the rope, then applied silicon and heat shrink.
    • 2 renard 24 channel controllers using 44 channels
    • Red, green and clear 3/8 rope light used
    • Lots of the clear was painted
    • Rope blacked out by using split flex tubing
    This was the first test and as you can see there are a number of lights to fix, and some to black out.Also need to add the Drive Belt, Santa Sleigh to receive the presents, and the tobaggon for the bow throwing bear to sit on.

    I mean this in a positive way, but if Rube Goldberg knew about rope light and wireframes, he might have built something similar.

    Truly impressive.

    Best of luck finishing it up.

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments.

    I am using split flex tubing to cover the rope where I dont want the light to show thru. From the pics you can see that I cut about 1/4 in out then place it on the rope. The last pic shows the back of the rope open to allow the heat to escape.

    Electrical tape does not work well with the temp difference we have. Someone may have already come up with this idea but I could not find any reference to it. If so, I apologize to the originator.

    It works great as it bends to any shape and it can be installed after the light is attached.
