    Default Topper

    Would anyone have a design file for a megatree topper?
    A friend works at a facility that can cut steel and asked me if I wanted something done for my show.
    I'd be looking for a 180 degree topper with 32 holes if anyone has a file for this?
    Even if someone could measure one they have and give dimensions it would help.
    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for that but I am looking for a topper to hang pixel strips from....
    Looking to expand my tree to 32 strings and make taller.

    I don't use this one but thought the measurements might help. He has a half round also.

    I made mine and can measure it later today, but it is 48 holes 360 degrees and I only use 24 180 degrees. The 1/4 inch holes for the hooks are less than the with of the pixel strips so they slightly overlap at the top. I'll measure when I get home later today.

    Thanks! I'm hoping just with those dimensions I should be able to get one made.

    Mine is about 15.25 diameter and holes are about 1" apart and about 3/4" in from outside edge. But like I said it's for 48 holes 360.
    The pixel strips are about 1.25 wide and do overlap but not enough to cover first pixel at top. I posted pics last year here. Post #15

    Thanks!
    That helps a lot!
    Gives me an idea of how far in the holes would be placed.
    The place gave me a free CAD program to draw one up, but it is for enclosures a little hard to wrap my head around.
