Technically my first project was the Founder’s Ruler, but this was the first thing I designed and made. Used Illustrator to make an etching in acrylic of my company’s logo, then designed and cut a bunch of pieces of hardwood to form a stand which could hold the acrylic in place over some old led strip I had lying around. Came out pretty good and I learned a lot.https://discourse-cdn-sjc1.com/business5/uploads/glowforge/original/3X/d/0/d0a75c214957e481c571a11d3f763623e16afabb.MOV
I think many if us have “problems” like this.?? Lol
Nice! Can we get a shot of it lit up?
That turned out fantastic! I had to work up to acrylic!
A little video of it lit and changing colors
Came out great! I like the nicely rounded corners–a sign of quality.
That’s great! What a sharp engrave! Great job on the box as well! I keep using the pre-made LED bases because I’ve been too lazy to make a box. So much classier your way!
Nice job! Nothing like a first project done all on your own!
man, if that’s your first job, can’t wait to see what you do once you get rolling
I like the rounded corners and the whole thing looks great!
Welcome - this came out great! Can’t wait to see what you make next. I noticed the labels in the background of the picture and wonder how they would look in veneer…
Thanks! I’m working my way through the proofgrade and other materials with little experiments to see how they work. Here’s a quick Gravity Falls icon I made for my daughter complete with stand from the plywood. Engrave looks great but the alignment was a little off as I did the cut first and didn’t compensate for it’s placement on the bed. She loves it!
That’s a fantastic idea. She’s been tripping over herself with ideas since we saw the Glowforges in action at Maker Faire this year.
