For those with the experience in edge-lit acrylic… if I had a tray, with LEDs arranged along the side, something like this:
Would this still work? Or would the light be too diffused by the time it hits the piece?
As an option, can the light transfer from piece to piece? Even if the entire edge isn’t touching?
My guess is that no, these scenarios wouldn’t work very well. But I thought I’d better ask before writing the idea off completely.
