    Hi, I am making a chandelier that will have 150 x 1metre long strands in 7 different circles.
    Outer circle 2.4metres, next circle 2.0m, then 1.6m, then 1.2m, then 0.8m then 0.4m and a centre.
    Each decreasing circle will be 0.5m lower than the previous one so it will be 2.4m wide by 3.5m high.
    It will be controlled by 15 channels with each 15th one on a different channel/universe as there are no return data wires on the strips (don't want to look at changing then for now) thus 10/output.


    Just wondering what the best model would be for xLights/Nutcracker. Though about stacking 7 x 360Deg trees as a model, using 7 x matrices as models.

    Possible NC/XL as you can set up the "tree" (possibly set up as a custom model ) and then rotate 180 degrees to suit
    Just a thought
