    Thanks all of you :)

    Jedateach; remember this is my first project... I had never touched a dremel before I started this project. And if I can do it, so can everyone else! it really isn't that hard, you just have to take your time and find out what technique
    you think is the best :)
    :dremel: Mod on my friend :dremel:

    (although I have answered the replies so far, I would love to get more commets on my work :thumb: )

    the first window I cut after toutching a dremel for the first time didnt turn out bad at all.. thought I would have more problems than I did..

    just pick up the dremel and get to work! you never know.. maybe there is an uber dremler inside you :D

    Excellent work there bro!

    When you cut the design, did you cut it from the other side of the window out, or did you dremel on the outside going into the case?

    Nice work on those thin bridges on the dragon. Very impressive!!!

    An inspiring cut.

    Thanks pal!
    I cut it from the inside out (which I shouldn't because I the dremel had slipped, the outside would get f****ed..). but it didn't slip, so it turned out ok :thumb:

    Hi y'all! Now I need help!! can someone tell me the difference between acryl and plexi (if any)??? I have finally found a place where they sell acryl/plexi/material-suitable-for-window, but it sais it is acryl... I have seen a lot of people inserting acryl as windows, but how is it compared to plexi?

    Please answer fast, because on wednesday I'm going to buy it.. (not sure if I should buy the entire 2m x 3m x 4mm plate, or just buy pieces :))

    acryl = material
    plexi = brand

    same stuff but original plexiglass is a bit more expensive

    Nice work on the cut out! Although it looks like some paint chipped off around your design?
