Hello GF Family! It’s an honer to be here in this amazing community!
Working on a 3D acrylic lamp and I’m not getting the lights to travel all the way to the top of the lamp , I know there are many posts talking about this, but I got little overwhelmed reading them all, Any of you guys know what exactly I’m doing wrong here ?
Here are my tries so far (scoring was the best results so far but still not popping enough and lights on the top of the lamp is not so strong). FYI I’m using PG medium clear acrylic.
1st. I tried to engrave with the default PG settings and that was the worst because it was engraved deep and it didn’t work at all.
2nd. I tried to De-focuse settings from one of the posts I found here with settings of 1000/100 with 340 lines and 0.308i thickness, and that didn’t turn out so well (lights still didn’t travel all the way to the top, and the object didn’t pop)
3rd. I tried Scoring 300/40 with auto settings, This was somehow the best results I got however lights still didn’t spread equally and object didn’t have enough lights on the top , I feel like the scoring was not deep enough to allow lights to travel all the way to the top, do you guys think that’s the issue ? I’d like to hear the correct settings if any of you guys have done these 3D lamps. Thank you so much for your help.
Would really love to achieve a look like this , as you see for this one , the lights travel equally and the subject pops very well
