Now it can be used with more precision than before.
Here is a link through Scenic Express.
I bought the Noch Grassmaster together with a friend, so half costs for each.
It works fine.
I found for me, that it is good to apply the grass on a uneven surface, if you want to avoid a golf lawn look. In the shown example I used "iceland moss" for the ground.
Also, I used dark green and faded grass fibers together.

Si...in an old Narrow Gauge Down Under, a fellow showed how to make a grass applicator for about $10 (US or AUS) which did what the 'spensive job does! Just don't tell anybody about this!

I designed my own Grassmaster.
I 3D printed it on my own printer and bought the electronics online.
It's assembled now.
First test of the home-built grassmaster with a 9 volt battery for power and Woodland scenics short grass.
Tomorrow I will test with the 12 volt trafo and longer grass.
I was surprised how strong the static field is.
The hair on my hand stands straight up when I get close ... The grass gets really dense and stands up really nice.
This project gives a good result.
The cost was really affordable.
When summarizing every component and the material for the 3D print, it cost me roughly $50!
Under half of what equal products on the market costs with the same specs.

I watched the video and that was cool and then I noticed youtube had a bunch of other videos that looked interesting, including some making the same device with a bugzapper:
HF has these zappers for $3.99 and the strainer can't be more than about that a couple of buck. At 12:40 he compares it against a $270 device sold by Walthers...
Guess I'm going to HF...
