Fun Print O' The Week - Pixel Tube Mounts


My buddy over at West Lights has gone down the LED pixel house rabbit hole, and this week I've officially helped fuel that addiction!


What is a pixel house?! Good question! I'd describe it as Christmas lights on steroids. No, that's not quite right... maybe Christmas lights on steroids with the brain of Einstein. No? Fine, I'll stop trying to be funny and you can just look at pictures of what they are here: LED Pixel House Pictures


Anyhoo, I was asked to help design a new mount for his pixel tubes after a different style of mount broke before he could even get the lights up on the house. No bueno.


After sharing a napkin sketch or two we came up with these beefy pixel tube mounts! They're 3D printed in PETG so they'll be tough enough to withstand Mother Nature and possibly a 200 lb gorilla or three!


Fun project, It was a nice change of pace to be able to start and finish something in about a day!


Can't wait to see the 4th of July show they'll be used in!
