    I'd like a copy of the files also, please.
    Do you have a photo of the strip attached?
    Great job on the design to.

    Hi,
    Here are a couple pictures from a Proof of concept print. The only difference is the thickness of the topper, the actual print is 1" thick at 90% fill. I used ABS because I read that it isn't impacted by the weather. It's really holding up nicely. I've had a lot of cold (teens), wind and rain and some snow here in Detroit and it's still there. There are a few mistakes. The center hole should have been 1.25 inches (it is 1") because it was / is too small I had to cut a couple grooves in my fence top rail (that makes the tree). I intended to use the other holes to pass wires through to the top but they could be larger. As you can see the slots are only large enough for one strip width, that worked out really well. When the tree top is 14'ft up you really cannot see that little strip protruding. The files are out on tinkcad. This link seems to work. https://www.tinkercad.com/things/hE8...-pixel-strips-

    Please let me know if you make any improvements!
    Regards, Merry Christmas.
    Jim
