    Sweet tutorial. :D -You should probably tell viewers to search for the O-ring spec literature on their own.
    On the Fusion banner it says, "free for students for 4 years." -That's why I never tried it. :lol: I'd get maybe 2 sessions and it would time out during the 2nd.

    Hello,

    could I get some more information and detail how to make the mirrored distro plate? It's absolutely fantastic, I would like to put one like that in the front of my case.
    Btw do you take custom orders perhaps? :happy:

    It is a combination of two panels glued together:

    "To achieve this I machined an acrylic mirror alongside a thicker 10mm section; these were then chemically bonded together to create a tight seal, as opposed to screws and o-rings like the other panels. This gives the panel a clean finish with no visible fasteners."

    If you need more info, hit up @Maki role

    Hey bud, wow thx for replying so fast.
    Yeah I've read that but still I don't understand how he "machined an acrylic mirror", you just take a simple transparent piece of acrylic and then with different polishing methods you achieve a mirror finish?
    And the 10mm section is simple transparent acrylic or something else?
    Also, the exact type of chemical is definitely needed yes, imagine my parts splitting apart :)
    I'll contact Maki then!
    Thank you.

    EDIT:
    I'm trying to send a message to Maki but I constantly get an error "An unexpected error occurred. Please try again later."

    No, you literally buy silvered acrylic. The machining refers to shaping it, not making it a mirror; it's already a mirror.
