      And yes, It would give you many more points of failure and probably cost 5+ times more.

    Damn i give up. I had to look it up again to see how easy this looks here. I tried 3 different types of spray paint none of them stay "liquid" on the watersurface. They all become a milk skin like film and form ripples when sprayed on the water. Are european spraypaints different because of some hazard regulation or something?

    • NecroFromDark
      NecroFromDark 13 days ago

      @Jake Walker Why would you think i didnt do that? Most of the time the dont say one word about what type, just any spraypaint. One said acrylic based well thats the first one i tried, didnt work at all.

    Glue is cheaper than micro bolts. Cheaper to use, cheaper to design for. It's a cheap product. Doesn't look good for nvidia honestly.
