i’ve been wondering for a while if we can do something similar in RGB with three rows of edge-lit acrylic

That is kind of what I attempted with my Star Trek console project. It did not work out as well as I wanted, but I still think it’s a great idea.

Very cool! Has anyone gone looking for CMYK transparent acrylic to recreate this project?

It would be neat to play around with.

Is my thinking correct that this would be more appropriate for a dye-sub printer - or printing color separations to a clear film and then adhering to a coaster?

For a laser project, I guess you’d have to cut out the particular sections of the acrylic to create the additive color effect.

Fwiw - color separations are easy enough to do in Illustrator to at least get the file set up correctly.
