    Thumbs up I値l buy it next time! DIY Star Build...

    So as a newb to pixels and computer controlled lighting I decided I wanted a large star as a centrepiece to my relatively modest 1st time display. Turns out shipping a $10 piece of coroplast into Canada is a slow and spendy proposition though... Cue the DIY attitude and before you know it I’m on YouTube learning how to draw a star and marking one out on hands and knees in the garage...

    Well... 42”, 6 rings and 270 nodes later I know why people pay for that prefabricated luxury!

    If you're considering DIY'ing a (complex) coro prop but don't have a good reason not to just buy it save yourself the trouble LOL! But if it’s any help a Brad point 7/16” (11.1mm) drill bit works remarkably well on Coro and gives a nice snug fit for your 12mm pixels!!

    all i can said is WOW but why so many pixel ,,when its lite up all it will do is a blur so you migh need to drop the % on controler (100 % you will blind people lol ) but your right shipping to Canada is expensive ,,,i also build my own snowflake because of the cost of shipping ... next time you should build 1 of those ,,probably easier too ,, i did it because i had spare strip to do and it look awsome on top of my tv tower
