    Default 12mm Bullet Pixel Star Cover

    Designed these star shaped covers for 12mm bullet pixels that I will be suspending over my roof.

    What exactly did you print those with?
    They look great.

    Just made one myself with some crystal red PLA I had laying around. Test fitted on both Ray wu's bullet and square pixels and they fit great. The star is approximately 3 1/2 inches tip to tip. Will light it up later on. I could see these looking great with larger spaced pixels mine are only 4" spacing. Again thanks for sharing. Chris.

    As others have said, it is about 3 1/2 inches. I used Monoprice clear ABS.

    For my printer it takes about 45 minutes each. I'm not into selling. You could contact a maker or 3d printer service near you to see if they could make them.

    used Monoprice clear ABS. It's not really very clear, but as you can see, it shows the light well. Other light colors look good too.
