Hi all, not sure if this is the correct place to post this (if not please move to correct place). Following on from my Build Thread here is how I did my house outline. I copied other peoples ideas of using 25mm conduit and drilling holes to suit the 12mm bullet type pixels. I started making a jig to help hold the conduit to use with my drill press and a 12mm spade drill bit. View: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w6fgptnltcu5rec/Photo%2018-8-18%2C%207%2050%2008%20pm.jpg?dl=0 Not the best picture but hopefully you can see whats going on View: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g5fe3xeqp8p5cgb/Photo%208-1-18%2C%208%2043%2059%20am.jpg?dl=0 One thing I did find after using a 12mm spade bit for the holes I had to drill a slightly larger hole in the back of the conduit as a relief for the back larger part of the bullet pixel (sorry no picture). I have also seen pictures of other people using a step drill to do the holes, but I had the 12mm spade bit in the drill box so thats what I went with. I then decided to paint the conduit so it would blend it a little with the reddish bricks of my house (I just used some cheap generic spray paint, its not the best but should be ok) View: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jepjfytn7fqwxgp/Photo%206-1-18%2C%2011%2028%2056%20am.jpg?dl=0 My house outline consists of ; Upper roof pitch Doorway Across the top of the Planter boxes. Like this View: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l5a4nmus4ifj8dp/My%20Layout%20V1.jpg?dl=0 Each side of the roof pitch is approx. 5400mm I went with 75mm pixel spacing so it is about 72 pixels each side. So for ease of handling and installation etc I went with two pieces of conduit for each side of the roof pitch and using a conduit joiner to well join them together. I did also fit a hook to each end of the conduit that met at the peak of the roof pitch and I plan to use some cable ties and screw in some small cable tie mounts to lower edge of the timber roof pitch) Sorry no picture of this yet. I have done a trial fit and it seems to work ok The outer sides of the house are about 1800mm from the tops of the planter boxes to the roof,again I went with 75mm pixel spacing so about 23 pixels for each wall. Then I did the planter boxes, similar to roof pitch, two pieces of conduit for each planter box for ease of handling, there are approx 4050mm wide, so again with 75mm spacing 54 pixels. Next was the doorway, so either side of the doorway and across the top Each side approx 2025mm from top of the planter box to the top of doorway (27 pixels) and approx 1500mm across the top (20 pixels). So after much drilling, make the pixels strings to length, soldering pigtails on etc my outline was done. I then looked around for a way to attache the walls and doorway conduit without having to drill holes into my uses brickwork. I noticed when reading @David_AVD da_share website he mentioned about using "Brick Clips" https://www.da-share.com/christmas/tips-tricks/brick-grips/ So I ordered some and they arrived and I did a test fit, looks like they will work ok as well View: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ycgwphhczzwm3dn/Photo%2015-3-18%2C%2011%2053%2043%20am.jpg?dl=0 Here is a picture of the doorway View: https://www.dropbox.com/s/b2eztsudv34d14m/Photo%2015-3-18%2C%2011%2053%2025%20am.jpg?dl=0 The upper section of conduit is for something else (update on this to come later) So that 's my basic house outline done for Phase 1 so to speak. -------------------------------------- Outline Phase 2 Then as my display ideas started to grow I wanted to do the outline of the small garden bed in the centre of my front lawn. Now this is a funny kidney shaped garden bed put in by previous owners (I would have done a square garden bed, but you make do with what you have). I was after something to allow me again to use bullet pixels to go around the perimeter of the garden bed, now conduit wasn't go to work. So I thought I would try something maybe a little different for this and tied some 25mm thin walled Black Poly Irrigation Tube (I had some left over from installing a self watering system for the backyard). Similar to this https://www.bunnings.com.au/holman-25mm-x-25m-black-poly-irrigation-tube_p3120669 Again I drilled 12mm holes with a 12mm spade bit and as this was thin walled tube the 12mm bullet pixels pushed in easily with no relief on the back required. It ended up like this https://www.dropbox.com/s/uqbrr82vkn2n84j/Photo 25-6-18, 10 01 49 am.jpg?dl=0 Also it allowed me to roll it up for storage. https://www.dropbox.com/s/y6gox1pz13mmyzb/Photo 25-6-18, 10 01 35 am.jpg?dl=0 Specs are Approx length 10m With 75mm pixel spacing 143 pixels for the garden bed outline 12 Volt pixels. To secure this in place around the garden bed I will use some plastic garden stakes and cable tie the polly tube to Similar to these https://www.bunnings.com.au/garden-rain-280-x-25mm-black-multi-peg_p3321720 Here is a pic of the garden bed outline all rolled up for storage. https://www.dropbox.com/s/y6gox1pz13mmyzb/Photo 25-6-18, 10 01 35 am.jpg?dl=0 Note: I am power injecting at the end of this garden bed outline. Next was the fence outline Update to come.
