Re: Project [E]3


So black portion would be holes, and white portion would be acrylic, correct?

1.5mm, isn't that too thin?

Bro, 1.5mm thick arms out of a 3mm thick acrylic? Don't you feel that the arms should be a tad thicker?
More like minimum 3mm.

Basically I need a hex mex type design, but it should be a bit random....maybe 3 on one side, a few in the center and some more on the other side, like that. And the arms should be strong enough to not easily crack or break.
Reminds me of Phinix's Nano-cube. Great idea.

1.5 mm will probably be too fragile, you definitely want 3mm. Also, you might want to get slightly thicker acrylic given that you'll be punching holes all over it.

Sorry, can't help on the Corel Draw bit. The cutter takes CDR files?

Re: Project [E]3

@stonedsurd

Yup, the laser cutter takes a cdr file and makes it. In case no one is able to help, I may be able to push him to do it. Lets see.

Also needed your help on one more thing, how to make sure the FL acrylic is evenly lit?

Sand it?

Re: Project [E]3

No, position or diffuse the light as best you can initially. Sanding should be your last course of action.

Yes. Where are you placing the SMDs? along the edges of the acrylic?

Re: Project [E]3

Yes, it is along one edge. The edges light up very nicely in fact, but the center portion does not.

Re: Project [E]3

Hey, you can ask the laser cutter guy too do the frosting effect. I know the laser cutter guy here in Delhi does it, these guys use it to make the names plates for offices.

Ask the laser guy he can make it for you. Today is a weekend, I'll see what I can get done.

Edit: Remembered, they call it engraving.

I believe this can be done with the dremel too. I saw a video somewhere that does it.

Re: Project [E]3

Yes, u'll need to use a sanding disk with it and lightly sand the surface of the acrylic.


Is this similar to what you want? The hexagons would be cut off and be holes. At the moment the edge length is 15mm and the arm length 3mm. Let me know accordingly what edge length you want or approx how many in a row and column.



Here is the same one with some of the hexagons removed, once the size is sorted we can randomly remove them or u can tell me which ones u want removed with a small x or red dot.



Let me know what you think.

Re: Project [E]3

Awesome thanks man. That looks like exactly what I want. All that's left to do is to remove the ones on the edge and remove maybe 2-3 from the design itself. Thanks a lot man really appreciate it.

Size is alright? If yes, then use the first image and just let me know which ones you want removed. How do you want to handle the edges?
