    I decided to replace my old 25ft mega tree (10,000 lights) with my new 12 ft pixel tree. It was a hit last year and I figured it was time to swap out the old for new! Check out the pics below!

    It's running on a P12R and 2811 pixels. 30 strands with 45 pixs on each, 3" spacing.

    This might need to get moved to the vendor forum - at first glance, looks like a personal post, but the image clicks through to a website where you can purchase the pixel tree kit..

    It is a personal post. I do sell the tree as a kit though. The point wasn't to advertise the tree... I just wanted some feedback on the design. I worked my butt off trying to get it really well made! I'm working on a cool "star" for the top that uses the same technology (pixels). I'll post some pics when I'm done.

    This is what I'm replacing my mega tree with this year. It'll be easier (and safer) to put up. lol

    1/8" Vinyl Coated wire rope. It's zip tied on there every few lights or so. The size and coating on the rope keep it from slipping.

    This sounds like the stuff I used. Bunnings had it as clothes line cord. Works great. I used it for the same reason. It doesn't slip after being zip tied and the wire core means you can tension it up. Also means you have an insulated wire so it is less likely to rub with the string and cause a short.
