    Waiting on my TP3244. :) The LT6803 that I have has decided it's done and won't take a DMX signal any longer. As to what do they look like in a real world display? Here is a video showing David Johnson's display from last year (he developed the concept of the megamatrix). This video should be pretty much the same since he was using d-light firefli's which also contained three 5050 LEDs:

    silly question time, do the things that you make out of corroplast come as "ready" to make objects, or do you take sheets of material and cut them yourself?

    I take raw sheets of material and using a CNC machine, cut them out. The original design was by David Johnson (of LightShow Pro) but I did a huge amount of design to make it a "snap together" design.

    No - not nearly 40%. Here is some samples of different diffusion:

    Most of new items have half coro which is perfect:

    Any light "lost" to the diffusion is more than made up in the wider coverage of light. I'm sure you see this on your DMX tubes.
