    Father's Day and I got to spend more time on my coro star.

    I left some panels out until I crack out the soldering iron to make it easy.[​IMG]

    I like very much and want to make one.
    You say 1200 high and 900 wide, but what, may i ask, is the dimension across the smaller points?

    It measures 500 across the smaller points 900 across larger points and 750 from centre to the largest single points.
    I found the centre of a 900 sheet of coro and drew the 2 circles. 500 and 900. A nail in the middle with a piece of string works great for circles, then I just divided it up.

    A few people have asked for dimensions of my star so I created a quick drawing on how to draw my star on a 1200x900 piece of coro. The inside circle is radius but this can be modified to suit how pointy you want the star. Same process applies. Good Luck

    Nice work. Noticed you had 21 rgb led modules. I'm about to build a new sign 600x 800 with 20 modules. Hope they are bright enough for me.
