    I have a Zonestar p802 with a 220x220mm bed. I also just added a new STL reduced by 1CM as the nodes were a bit tight using every other hole.

    Created a slightly smaller part so you can make a 15 piece snowflake. Since the pixel nodes were a bit tight, I shortened the part by 1cm. This added a little slack in the wire. A 15 piece snowflake will be approx. 24". Thingiverse Snowflake

    out of curiosity, what would you calculate the cost filament wise to build this snowflake?

    It took approx 3.5 Meters to print. Or .02Lbs (10g). So it depends on the material, so PLA about 50c

    Thanks - I printed this from your Thingiverse link, came out great so I'm going to print more and build it up! What are the small holes for? I'm guessing tying down the wires but a little small for tie wraps (zips).

    Also I was wondering how you are sequencing this? Would the be a standard or custom effect... sorry I'm trying to get up to speed on that part and another reason why I'm making this now so I can start to learn the sequencer part. I've only used Vixen 2 and need to move to V3 to Xlights this year. Thanks for sharing your design!

    I used a custom build in xlights using excel to draw it out. And yes the holes were for tie wraps( I have real small 3 ones! The second one I designed with 3 less leds per piece is what Ill use.

    Great thanks... I missed that but now I see the 100mm part and that it can be used for a 24" snowflake (larger but using less nodes, 45 vs 60). I'm going to build both and see if I can get the sequencing right... meaning do some cool effects with it. I'll look for some tiny tie wraps too
