2 long, 1 short: Will it work?

by noob_for_life on Fri Jul 06, 2012 1:56 am

My 13 year old must have been a little to eager to build this SpokePOV because his missed something critical in the instructions. When he got to the part about cutting the board for BMX and kids bikes, he just read that he should cut the board . . . and did.

Now he has two long boards and one that was cut. He's not sure he wants to spend the money to replace the short board. He's wondering what would happen if he sent a design created for long boards to the short one? Or does he create an edited drawing for the short board?

The 'long board' pattern will be truncated where the board is cut. If you are putting all three on the same wheel, load the same pattern on each. The missing section will appear slightly dimmer when the wheel rotates.
