Most will now have a coating on top of this, all of these will be clear so to the naked eye they are difficult to tell apart.

If you want to make light escape from the side to get what is called 'side glow fibre' you will need to get down to the core to stop some TIR.

Hope that helps out.

Explained better, I did not understand what are the TIR ... ....
How do I get the light effect on the entire fiber?

Hey,

TIR is total internal reflection, the process by which the light light can travel down the fibre via reflecting off the internal surfaces.

You will need to remove all the cladding and coating to get the side glow effect.

I would recommend you use plastic optical fibre (POF) as it firstly much bigger in general and is far more forgiving.

Alternatively you can google 'plastic optical fibre side glow' and find a local source.

Ed

Yup, a sideglow POF will give you what you want...much better than sanding would.

Waiting for the bundle of optical fibers with side lighting from China ... ... I dedicated to pools for liquid cooling. Here are the cuts:

















Now we're going to glue the first pieces to the Bowl containing my action figure Jack Sully ... ...





I later realized tubes of inlet and outlet of the bath great ..... ...





Now we practice holes on the Central cylinder ... ... ... and the subsequent application of little tubes ... ...













Here's the finished work in respect of the first Assembly of the pieces of the tanks ..... ...













Stay tuned........

Are you going to use led strips for the branches or optic fibre? IMO optic fibre fed from a rgb light source would be better.

Until I get the optical fibers with lateral lighting, I finished the large tub, one that will go under the tree. After doing the hole I threaded with a tap from 1/8 to seat the hose (commonly used for wash basin mixers), which will have the task to let
the liquid inside the tank ... ... ...










Water tightness test and subsequent discharge when the wired valve at the bottom of the flexible tube...








One of the two plugs that will block the hole filling and bleeding ..... ...













Final closing of the bowl .... ....







Ciauzzzzz.

Surely I will use one part, but will remain as much fiber as that of Ikea, when you will contact me .... ...
I'll give what you need.

New up. .. .... today I am dedicated to the support of the pan containing Jake Sully, I used the wood since it has good machinability, then I already had at home and the thickness was perfect ... ... .... Seeing a screen shot of the movie I started to draw the shape ... ...






After being cut with the jig saw I took measurements of the three holes of the Pan and precisely at the Center and on the sides, that of entry and exit ... ..... and I scored the wood to make the next cut ... ....


















Now at the openings on wood a centered point wood and after to pierce the plexiglass ... ... ...























At this point, as in the first tank with small tubes of plexi, I go to paste them into their housings to inlet and outlet .... ...














Then after the two fill holes and vent, I closed the tray with my Jake waiting for watertight test. .....










Stay tuned...........

Wow. Just wow. This Blew me away. If you can pull this off, it will be amazing. Nice idea with the Avatar hibernation thing, is that going to be the reservoir?

Keep Up the awesome modding, and subbed.
