    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
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/192...99&spm=2114.12010615.8148356.7.6ca61de5le7nAo
    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
