so basically, you have to add some kind of tape or sth to defuse the light?
You don't have to. It all depends on the LEDs and how much diffusion you need. Just a rough surface/slot between the light source and glass will also do just fine.
hey SMILODON! You gave me some tips on edge-lit acrylic a few months back. Just wanted to let you know that the project worked out tremendously ... I just posted a new thread in this modding forum with images of my work and some descriptions of what I had done.
You working on any new LED projects lately?
Yeah, I saw your thread. Some really nice work there.
I don't have any particular LED project in mind at the moment. I do have some plans on making a digital picture frame, though. We'll see if that ever go somewhere. (I have already made two, but they both have their flaws...
Your door project is outstanding! I was thinking that this idea would work as an alternative to the traditional kitchen backsplash - what an awesome feature for kitchen design. There is a business in this for sure.
Old thread I know but would you believe I just managed to get back here from Stumbleupon
hey...i want to do the same thing but with flames ...im going to get the glass cut in the shape of a flame and then etch one so i can have it outlined in blue and the other i was going to leave blank that way the core color of it is white.....do you know if that would work??
This project started the idea for a sign for my dad's shop. yes the picture is a bit fuzzy and the frame still needs to be stained.
That's truly some awsome work man. I've been stopping by here off and on since the day this was posted. I've been raking my brain with ideas and now I finally have a few good ones. I'll let you know how it works out.
gonna need to roughen up the surface of the white one to diffuse the light
That`s an amazing door! All it took was a norwegian
I can't believe this thread is still alive.
Should work just fine. Just remember that if the glass is transparent only the edge will glow. If you want the whole piece to glow you need to do as tominated says. Maybe sand only parts of it? This will keep the outlines and the sanded parts glowing.
That name still make me smile. Good work.
We tend to invade here and there.
Sounds good, why didn't i think of that
I have to come into the mod section more often. This is the coolest thing I have seen this year.
It gave me lots of ideas, if only I had the money, or the time, or the skill...
The only time that spam is awesome, I completely missed this even though it was bumped loads of times since I joined. Thanks to that spamming I have just something that has cheered me up when I ripping my hair out because I cannot sleep.
Awesome etching idea
Cool etching idea for a door. I have to try that sometime. I etch glass but by using a sandblaster. Good job and I'll try and post some of my projects soon.
Wow. Very impressive. I like it a lot!
I'm Going to give this a try
I can't believe how cool that looks, sure it was hard work but I would love to give this a try for the door through to the lounge in my alto club apartment
Hi! Can you tell me the type of accessory do you have used on dremel for draw??
very cool engravements, I like your door. Thats a very cool idea. You make your work, very good.
