I’ve now got the hang of using 2 color engraving plastic. Take the plastic film off before engraving!!
Here’s a few pics of an over-built holder for Lego Dimensions video game pieces. Each series of characters will have its own display. Figures in the front and gadget or vehicle in the back. The green is the 2 ply engraving acrylic.
I’m going to throw in a question for any Acrylic gurus. The base is 2 layers of acrylic, one with a circle cutout so that the piece has a nice surround to hold it in place. When I tried to bond them together, SciGrip 4 ran between and caused “crazing” between the two layers. Any good way to bond them? A different formulation of SciGrip maybe?
This green over white acrylic was from Inventables.
Now on to the info referenced in the Topic title. Here is a spot that is having a “garage sale” as they move out of some product lines to carry mostly the Gemini brand of acrylic.
Most of this is thin 2 ply engraving acrylic and the garage sale price is $2.50 per 12x24 inch sheet. They shipped fast and well packaged. There are 2 things to consider. Be careful when ordering. Always start your search from the Garage Sale page and make sure the category you are looking at does not say “Rotary Only”. The next thing is that they don’t provide shipping cost until your order is placed and they invoice you. That could be a concern, but the price of the material is so low that even high shipping costs can make it worthwhile. They ship UPS and charge by weight. I went crazy and ordered lots. The weight was 44 pounds and shipping was $33.00. It ended up being about $3.30 per 12x24 sheet. Lots of color combos, but as it is an inventory liquidation sale, No idea how long the variety will last.
Hope this interests a few of you.
