Ok — time to test out that Proofgrade acrylic. Definitely not an artistic build, but I had a hardware project that I thought would be perfect as a first acrylic test.
Although the wifi signal in my workshop is fine, I had an unused Raspberry Pi 3 laying around as well as an open port on my ethernet router, so I decided to turn it into a dedicated wifi hotspot for my Glowforge. Idle hands…
I grabbed a design from Thingiverse and dropped it into the GFUI. The only adjustment I made was to replace the original logo with my own. Didn’t adjust for kerf, thickness, nada. I did cross my fingers, though.
Agreed! I’ve 3D printed many enclosures, but there’s something about seeing a nice shiny acrylic box that really makes it pop. I have some black acrylic on the way — I look forward to adding labels for each of the openings, e.g. Power, HDMI, Audio, etc.
