Thanks for posting your 2 samples. I think they are great and would like to have a go myself, so a few questions if you do not mind. Did you use 1" Acrylic Plexiglass as buck4 did or thinner? Looks about 8mm,and what exactly was it?
Were your designs V carved and if so to what depth?
I have wondered how or where the lights were placed for the effect, and thanks to your photo of your base it has become clear. If you do not mind providing the rest of the info I would love to try one and use your base design concept.
Thanking you in anticipation,
All of the perspex is 4.5mm (3/16) thick and were VCarved to a maximum depth of 2mm. I would probably use 6mm, (1/4") if I had it but I wouldn't go any thinner.
I have attached the VCP files for the base top and bottom as well as a PDF file for each which I use to remind me the setup of the files 6 months down the track when I want to make another.
Hope it helps, and makes sense.
