Summary

A 6 side 3D Printed Snowflake holding 96 12mm Bullet Pixels. Holed for cableties for the LED's and slots to place the excess cables between pixels. It can be cabletied together, but I suggest adding some glue between the pieces, or using small bolts for strength.

6 identical pieces fit to form a 66cm diameter snowflake, and it will fit on a 250*250mm bed with a few mm spare

See the following video for a quick demo of it in action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7Zz7vhJDzU

do you have instructions on how to put it together and how you programmed the lights? Did you cut any of the lights to make it work?

Hi Lithgowlights, could you possibly upload a non-lit pic showing how you placed and attached the pixels - im battling with my 9mm scaled down version ;)

Hi Lithgowlights, could you possibly upload a non-lit pic showing how you placed and attached the pixels - im battling with my 9mm scaled down version ;)

Sure, just uploaded 2 images

I scaled down for my 200x200 bed (can't recall the %), no issues. I should easily be able to use 9mm pixels in the holes. Just ordered some to test ;)

Do you think this could still work scaled down at all? I only have a 200x200 build platform. I'd have to go to about 80% it looks like. Also do you know what the completed size is across tip to tip?

Consider making it with the pixels pushed through the material?
