My collection of sonic screwdrivers had outgrown the shadow box I’d originally bought to house them in, so I decided to make a larger, thematically appropriate display case for them. (If you’re asking, “What the heck is a ‘sonic screwdriver’?” or, “Why does the display case say ‘POLICE BOX’?”, it’s a nerdy science fiction thing.)
Since it was both a reasonably complex “box” and one that was substantially larger than my GF Basic could handle, I modeled it in three dimensions using Blender, broke it up into pieces of an appropriate size, and exported the profiles of the various pieces as SVG files.
It is, yes! I got a couple of LED strip lighting kits from the local big-box hardware store; each one contained four one-foot segments plus connector cables, but the transformer’s rated for five segments. Which was perfect for putting two segments down each side, plus one behind the sign.
(It’s got a little remote control for changing the colors, so I built a little pocket in the side of the base to stow it.)
