Hi all
seems I can't re use my arches in their current form from my last display as they are just way too large , so I'm going to cut them down however I was thinking of putting more dense strip in them 60leds/m 20pcs IC ws2811 as oppsed to the 30leds/m 10 pcs IC per metre looking at this

but just wondering what is the distance between the cutting points if anyone has some if they could measure it please?
(I know it's every 3 leds as per the old strip about every 100mm but as it's more dense is it about every 50mm?)

or is there something better to use inside the tube ?

thanks in advance
Matt
