I’m putting this thread in ‘Everything else’ because it isn’t necessarily a Glowforge project. Its more of something for me to do while I’m waiting.
I am looking to do something along the lines of this:
I am going to be doing a simple cube with acrylic sandwiched between pieces of bloodwood.
I have an idea of how I want to do it. MS Paint drawing below:
The idea is that I will have a solid piece on each end and the inside will be the hollowed out section where I can attach LEDs, a power supply and the like. I’m shooting to end up with a 4 3/4 inch cube that I can turn on, light, cycle through colors and all the fun stuff you can do with RGB color strips.
I have strip LEDs that I can cut, controllers and all of the electronic bits. I’m just looking for tips on what the best way to mount the LEDs would be to get a uniform glow across all of the acrylic edges without super noticeable bright or dull spots.
Any tips? Tricks you folks want to pass on? I’ll of course update with build progress as I go!
