Harper Family first pixel Christmas Setup 2017!!!
« on: August 11, 2017, 10:01:07 AM »
Ok, so programming went on the back-burner for a while and it's time to make some stuff!!

     I said I had planned to do PVC tubing around the house to make things more uniform.  I didn't know how I was going to secure the PVC tubes to the house, but ALAS!!!  I found some gray-matter between my ears (and a lack of green in my wallet) and came up with what I believe to be my best solution for securing things to the house.

     I have an abundance of Galvanized 1/2" banding material at work and "borrowed" some for my project..  I formed these as shown in the picture and plan for them to be placed @ ~ 3-1/2ft spacing.  I have had 20ft of tube on the roof for a week now to test rigidity (pictures soon) and they are working great!  I have also made clips for the fence ridges and crevices along the front of the house where additional tubes are going to be secured to the house (pics to follow on that as well).

Getting ideas together for my first year display:
 1 - Raspberry Pi3,  1 - Falcon F16V3 & 1 PiCap,  2 - 30A 360W PSU's (maybe 3)
12v Pixel strings - Mounted via holes drilled thru 1" PVC(3-4" spacing)
