Thanks for the photos and write up. Don’t be such a stranger.
Also: there is a big difference between the acrylic “almost touching the LED” and “touching the LED”. For best results the acrylic should be directly on the light source.
As you’re far from new here, I would assume you’ve read about “graduated” engraving? Have the engrave depth be less towards the bottom, closer to the light source?
It makes a worth of difference to how things look in-person, but does take some experimenting to nail down. Tough for one-offs, better for multiple copies…
Thanks for the tips!! I have some stuff similar to this I’m wanting to try.
Thanks for the kind assumption! No, I just saw one official post here about engraving for edge-lighting and have been delighted with the possibilities.
Graduated engraving depth makes perfect sense.
I will read-up and continue learning.
Thanks so much!
I’m just a hobbyist, and busy, so it’s hard to find time to play, much less report, but thanks for the encouragement!
Your tips are great. As I was looking at your pictures I was wondering where you got those neat looking bases, and then there was the link. Thanks for the write up.
