Nothing like a New Year and a Tuesday off to motivate you to pick up a project that got left behind.
Hardcore Dr Who fans might recognize this artifact:
It’s only in a handful of stories (and two TV episodes), but when I saw it in The Doctor’s Wife I knew I had to have one.
I started with a baseball display cube and some remote LEDs I had on hand, and tried to create the middle piece out of PG white acryic. I was hoping to assemble it without tabs or hinges to give the cleanest possible silhouette, but gluing them into place proved difficult. and led to some alignment issues (you can see extra light escaping at the edges).
Has anyone had any luck compensating for the angled edge when cutting acrylic? Where the cut is wider on the side facing the laser than the opposite side? I think it’s part of what caused my alignment issues.
