So I'm slowly getting everything together to run lights for the first year. I recently received my pixel sticks and went straight to soldering them all up and have now printed some cases for them! http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1886330 5 of my 10 pixel sticks are ready. I won't be using the whole 10 for the first year. And I'm sure just 5 will give me enough headaches.
