Will see how they fair.
    Replacement on my son's house (where we will be putting these things) is not an easy option. 3 stories up, a high pitched roof, and whatever else can cause anyone problems is pretty much in store for us. We will only have a lift truck for a short time, probably only long enough to put the lights up. We will pay the extra charge for the extra day to initially mount the clips. Hopefully they won't break too often, especially not during the first few years.

    Besides, if these things look good enough, I "might" put them up on my house.

    Love what your doing for the lighting community wolfie. If you want faster print speed check out switching to a bowden extruding method. You will or can get print speed up to 120mm/s

    I used the Lexan ones from HC and had a few break while setting up and taking down last year. I will keep you posted after the second year.

    It was not a horrible failure rate but this is the first year they are up. This year will be the real test.
    2014 - pretty basic static display
    2015 - lots of Blinky Flashy
    5 x Renard SS24
    2 x Renard SS16 for singing trees
    2 x e682 for around 2000 pixels
    2016 - Up to around 12,000 pixels and still wanting more.
