    Arch construction help

    I did mine with 38mm air seeder, custom 3d printed foot and fishing line to hold the shape. Stupidly expensive stuff and I did real well to score someone's left overs for a good price. Hah, I bent 7 pieces of PVC to be about that shape just leaving them lying across the rafters in the shed for...

    Mega tree Base

    I have 50mm aluminium pipe, but not conduit, as my base works well enough just be prepared to grab a couple bags of gravel to weigh it down. Roughly where abouts are you I might know someone who unfortunately has a sightly bent out of shape trampoline after recent storms.

    What element(s) are you building or installing this week?

    I am working on all the things simultaneously... Candy canes, upgrades for the mega tree, power supplies and controllers. The dig uno is on a bracket that slides over a 12v power supply.

    My Arch Build.

    My Arch Build.

    And after another 15 minutes, everything but the PSU is stable, the PSU is still slowly marching up. I'm not going to lie, I'm a smidge concerned about that 42 degree reading but that could actually be the pixel itself given this time I measured the other side of that power injection point...

    My Arch Build.

    Two parter because I could only attach 6 files to a single post. This is the result of half an hour worth of testing using the "test" button on the smart differential controller, which I note is running the LEDs much harder than I would be normally (show brightness is around 30%) TH01-A is in...

    My Arch Build.

    power injecting with cable tee

    All my T's just common all the data, the v+ and the v-, so I just snip the data short at the power supply end of the cable so there's no chance of short.
