    Hi Everyone
    I would like your opinion on the following please. I have a roof 9m x 5m that I am going to cover with pixels. I'm just looking for opinions on what spacing between pixels you would recommend please?

    Likewise, I'm interested in people's suggestions.

    In my case, my roof line is around 100m from the road, so I'm guessing 75+ mm spacing should work for me, due to the distance from the road.


    If you are close to the road, then perhaps 50mm or even closer might be what you need to have ?

    We are relatively close to the road but I had 75mm in my head. I think 50mm may turn out to be too much for my pocket

    I'm thinking the same myself with the costs, but if I want that to be included, I'll just have to stick with my 2 wire led's for this year, and add on next year.

    Just took a look at my 2 wire led's, and they are around 50mm apart.... the icicles are around 200mm between drops for some, and about 130mm between drops for another set of icicles.


    When I actually get some pixel lighting, I might just set some up at 75mm spacing, then take a look from down at the road.
