First edge lit project


#1

For my nephew the gamer…his current favorite game. And…late birthday present.

Need to make an insert to keep it completely vertical since the proofgrade acrylic is thinner than the slot.


#2

That’s the same base I used on mine - I 3D printed a 1/16" piece of plastic to wedge into mine and it worked great.

Your sign looks awesome!

Great edge-lit!

Funny thing on that.
I bought 4 of these at one time (should have gotten smart and bought the dozen pack since all used up//given away now).
Looks like the same flavor (with a tiny remote to change color etc)

Two had one width, and the other two were thinner.
End result was two were loose and I had to put a small sliver of gorilla tape on the bottom to make it hold upright.
The other needed a little shaved off on the tab that sticks in.

I know people say they don’t make things like they use to, but really…


#5

If I only had a 3-D printer…next tool on the list.


#6

I’ve been using 1/16" balsa or ply and darkening the edge with a black sharpie. Also craft foam.

What base is that?

Thanks!


#10

that looks great! which engrave setting did you use?


#11

I have found I have a pretty good cut that wedges so tightly into the base that it stay perfectly.


#12

I used the default proofgrade settings but changed it from SD engrave to 3D engrave, but I used a couple of colors so the letters at the bottom are not as deep as the square above. The image is also reversed.
