Oh shoot! I thought you guys had some two-tone PG. It’s been a while since I hit the store. :smile:

Yes… That’s why I added my own voice to your question. I wanted the answer too. For the same reason.

It’s opaque bile green (markings colored with Matte Black MTN 94 spray paint). It was a sample that I picked up at a trade show. I had also grabbed a sample of what I thought was florescent orange, based on the exposed edge that I could see under the masking…

So… who’s going to make the reversed version so it can be engraved on the back side of clear acrylic? Or is it all vectors so it could simply be mirrored in the GFUI?

Got lazy. Just tried the 2 color acrylic that I had from Inventables. Didn’t bother trying any fancy settings and didn’t measure the thickness. Selected automatic black acrylic and pressed print. Just wanted to see how the 2 color would shine through, wasn’t worried about the detail.

Edit: originally posted a picture with what looked like melted edges on the acrylic under magnification. Then I realized there was a very thin clear mask over the green acrylic. Very hard to see or feel. Peeled right off and the edges look great.

Now I kinda wish I had bought some of that fancy stuff…

I never realized quite how deep the cuts were until I saw the shadow cast from that angle. Is that the same depth for all the lettering, as well?

It’s definitely got real depth to it. In my experience with 2-layer acrylic like that, it’s… say… similar to old-school engraved nameplates. Like these things:

This finally showed up in my GFUI, it is going to be another “I’ve got a scrap and 10 minutes” thing. I love these sort of projects. Very little :proofgrade: goes in the garbage around here.
