post #11 of 93
Any rhyme or reason to the spacing in the horizontal grill slots on the front panel? My first impression was that it looked bad bad bad... but now as I look at it again.. especially from a distance... it looks like a.. well.. a barcode. It's grown on me now heh. I like... but only if you agree that you meant to make it look like a barcode.

Yeah the first three rows are the same and have been copied and moved 20mm down. Autocad doesn't really let you just place stuff anywhere. My main jig with that part was to have the light coming out of it like lasers. There's a frosted acrylic panel going behind the "barcode" so the light should be diffused quite well no matter what.

I can't get enough of this mod, even when I have run out of 6mm acrylic I just can't stop modding it. Here is that light diffuser for the "barcode array". One frosted panel wasn't enough so I put two there and threaded them together with automotive grade nickel cap screws.


The cap screws sit just above the panel, they look awesome and the lighting has a subtle but striking effect.


Of course the panel is clear diffused so you can try a colour combination that suits you.






Green and black never gets old.





Not going to fill all the drive bays up? Worry not; 6mm thick and hairline polished, these drive bay covers are worth their weight in bling factor.

Until next time!

awesome work. i know that took some time and planning. if you slow the cut IPM down just a little it will save you some clean up. i would love to route something like this on our router, but don't have the extra time to make the plans up. the bar code looks sweet.

Unfortunately I can't slow the IPM down at all. I work in mm/min and I tested over 40 cuts of squares and circles from 1000mm/min all the way up to 7000mm/min. I used a variation of climb cut and conventional cutting and after inspecting the 40 cuts it was 5000mm/min climb cutting with two 3mm passes that came up with the cleanest finish.

Any slower and bits melted onto the piece, any faster and the material had noticable machining grooves. Of course this is all specific to the tool I use and when I get my new Onsrud Carbide bits I will have to go through the whole process again!

Carbide bits are nice, but we burn through them so fast.. we route anything from plex, lexan, pvc, sign foam, osb, and aluminum. thickest we go is 2" though. you should try one of these. they are great for plex.

I have 4 of those onsrud single flutes in the mail from the USA, should be here in a matter of weeks. They respond well do single passing at 4000mm/min, I broke one at 6000mm/min and that was 30AUD down the drain lol.
