I dont know why but I thought that design was going to be on the mobo tray, think that would be possible while keeping the strength to hold the components and any cooling?

Just an idea.

I'm looking for pink UV plexiglass, but I'm not having success ... so I decided to try to do my own plexi pink = D

this is the powdered resin:

This resin is used in the manufacture of orthodontic appliances ... the colors are lime green and pink UV ... I'll use the pink

The application process is very fast, as I need the hands free, I did not take photos

molds:


is ready, now is cook for 2 hours ...


some time later ...

Absolutely stunning piece of work. I like to see new ideas, it's easy to incorperate overs ideas in your own work so my congratulations as I haven't seen this before, well done.
