Just adding this for anyone who might find it useful. This is a 3D-printable jig that I remixed from another design.
It is a drilling jig for 25mm PVC Conduit for WS2811 pixels with a 50mm spacing.
I've been messing around with RGB strips on and off for a while, never really doing anything "helpful" with them... now, I've got a new patio up in the backyard and I want to add my strips around the patio for some extra added lighting, and to put all of my strips to good use for a...

How many times have you seen someone ask the above question? More than likely they are not sure whether to buy WS2811 5V or 12V RGB pixels. Well how about a third contender, GS8208 12V pixels? Not all 12V is the same, as it turns out! Spoiler...
Made from 5mm corflute and 25mm conduit from Bunnings.

Have been putting together some new icicles using the Boscoyo mounts and Ray Wu 7,7,7 pixels.
First six no problem, but the last is giving me grief. The first 20 or so pixels show white, while the rest seem to do what they should. Have tried several controllers and get the same result...

Been a long time since I posted anything, hope you guys are getting your setups done.
In the past I have used the WS2811 addressable LED strip from the same supplier which gave me the strips that give you the wiring order of
This year I had to change where I got them from...
I've just fired up the P12 and tried the test pattern. I am getting output 1 going through the colours with a white led moving along the string with each change. This is what I expected to happen. The odd thing is all the other outputs are staying white and not changing. Is this normal or do I...
