    Default PixaBulb Flush Mount

    I have uploaded a variation on my pumpkin mount. This one also for mounting PixaBulbs but for mounting them on a flat surface.

    I added dog ears to the base with screw holes for #6 machine screws and I removed the barbs on the outer base. You can use the pumpkin upper with this base and vice versa. The internals didn't change making them interchangeable.

    I don't have a printer, but How long does it take to print one of these?

    What an excellent idea. I will have Pixabulbs on my yard perimeter. If I only had a printer for these guys. Next year.

    Each printer is different as some print fast and others slow. Mine ran bout 30min for a set. Similar time for the pumpkin mount. So I would guess a tray of 24 (48 total pieces) would be around 7hr which the pumpkin mount runs.

    That's an excellent design. I'm thinking its time for you to cast that sample and transition over to DIY injection molding.

    Oh yea, more toys and lack of space to put them ;)

    They should work fine for injection molding I would think. Never had anything done custom but with the lack of overhangs, I can't imagine why this wouldn't work well in that process.

    Don't know about GECE. If the base is the same size, then yes. I have no GECE to know. If you have a dead one (ie fried) you could send me one node and I can test it and possibly make a modified version. PM me if you have a dead (or one node you don't want back) and want to send it to me.
