orchidman Posted May 6, 2019 Share Posted May 6, 2019 I will be designing and adding a new flat tree to my display this year using S5 to program it with a PIXIE or PIXCON. I will want to use either 2.5 meter or 5 meter long lengths of the LED lights and am wondering how wide I should plan on the base to be. I am guessing a somewhere between 2:1 and 3:1 might be the best ratio but can I get some input from others as to what I should shoot for. If I go with the 5M strips or about 15' tall, then I would have 16 strings and if I go with the 2.5M strips or a little less then 8' tall, it would have 8 strings doubled (up and back down). So there would be 16 strands at the base. For the 2.5M strips, 2:1 would put the spacing at the base of each strip at about 3" apart and 3:1 would be shy of 2" apart. Is it more important to consider the spacing of the strings at the base or the overall aspect ratio to dictate the width at the base? Viewing distance would be at least 20' with an average of 40' to 60' depending on where they stop on the street. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
