    With that diameter you could put a couple sets of James' large arch coro around the outside perimeter and line the whole circle with lights as well. At 2" spacing that would be another 51 pixels.

    I like the design, it has me thinking about a smaller version to fit onto a small section of porch roof I have.

    Dkelly,
    I used pvc conduit hoops on my previous build (Easy LED Snowflake Spinners) with mini lights strung between the outer circle, it flexed a little but it holds its shape pretty well. I use them on them flat on the roof so it really only needs to kind of hold its shape. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Michael, I did not include the outer circle as part of the nodes, but now that you mention it it might be interesting to add it.

    Chris, Looks like you are already figuring out how to do what Michael suggested. I was trying to figure out how I would make the strips go around a bend, but with the Boscoyo coro arch it might work great. One could use the medium arches as the ring for 4' version of my Spinner StarFlake.

    Would love to see a video of this in action once you get it built. I am thinking of making a few but much smaller, like 2 or 3 feet across.
