    Doc / Robo,
    Hopefully you're still there. While I'm on the subject, take a look at this thought:

    Changing directions (maybe) on how I'm going to mount those 2400 Square Nodes on my 10 Mini-Trees. Instead of spot welding matching rods to the already placed 15 Rods around the circumference of the trees (the 2 rods together would create a cradle for the square node's frame to sit in), I thought about buying those Pixel Mounting Strips from James.

    The concern I have is, with so many of these mounting strips around the tree, the front two or three trees might completely block portions of the trees behind them.

    Thoughts?

    Got a pic or two. Maybe a small vid, so I can see what it would look like if I did that to mine?

    Hell, that means I'd only need two (2) e682s to run ALL my Mini-Trees vice the ten (10) I was dreading!

    Sounds like that's what you, Doc, and Neil were all recommending in one way or another. After that little video, I'M SOLD!!!

    lol. After seeing how great ya'lls trees look and the number of nodes you used in creating them.... I'm beginning to think that I'm definitely over-killing with my plans! If I keep going with my same thought process, I'm gonna mess around and have 10 MEGA-TREES instead of 10 Mini-Trees!! HA!

    I think I need to dial back my ambitions to around 11 or so.

    Here's what my Trees will look like. I haven't inserted the 2nd matching rods yet. This is just the single rods showing the 15 legs of my 360 degree Mini-Tree.

    Perhaps my concern of "blocking other trees" behind the front 2-3 trees can be better understood now. Still thinking I'll get those Mounting Strips, but maybe in the Clear color and it won't block parts of the other trees.
