Thanks! They are some nice looking cards this time around.

EDIT----Never mind... I just looked it up. Its an Auto Desk program.... I not familiar with Auto Desk... Solid Works, MasterCam and Pro-E... How much does the software that your using differ from some of the ones that I mentioned... I might have to give it a try....
Hey, rfjunkie.

I had to export the file to a .dwg format for the waterjet. 3DSMax is the CAD program that it was created in, but I think that .dwg is a standard that can be used between the different CAD programs for this type of work.

I don't know, man.. if it turns out like the netbook from before...


Just a short update for now.

I picked up some edge trim tonight at my local Auto Zone. This will help dress the rough edges on the perspex.

I wasted an hour at Lowe's Hardware store looking for some kind of edge trim or U-channel molding that would fit 1/8" perspex but, once again, the hardware stores in my area are a big...



... when it comes to anything but the most mainstream home improvement items.

So, I'm using automotive trim that I was able to find at a local Auto Zone near my house.



It's a nice, snug fit on the perspex, and it has a thin line of adhesive down the groove so that the edges will stick.



Beginning to dress the edges of the middle piece:



I'm leaving a little overhang so as to have a smooth join in the corners. After the corners are fitted, I'll cut the excess trim for a smooth join.

post #384 of 1675
Nice! I've worked with that edge trim before, and it really works well. Nice find.
post #385 of 1675
So how come there's no new big UPDATE for us, yeah sure those card look nice but come on hurry it up.

I'm loving this mod so much!

Hmmm why don't you sand down the acrylic edges and polish them? Would look so much cleaner and won't detract from the floating effect. I don't know if you know how to do this or not, so:

1. Start at 300 grit and get sanding with the paper on a sanding block. Make sure you remove all scratches at this level (i.e. don't leave large ones, they will still be there when you move on)

2. Move to a higher grit, say 400, and do it again, remembering to move all scratches at that level. If there are stilll ones remaining from the previous after you have started doing this one, go back to 300.

3. Keep repeating this until you reach 800.

4. Two options here:
i) Get some Brasso and a cloth. Clamp the acrylic with the edge pointing up. Put some brasso on the cloth and get rubbing that thing! Really put your back into it and the acrylic will become shiny like the rest of it. The more you do it, the more you will get the ultra fine scratches out.

ii) Get some Red Rouge polishing compound and a buffing wheel for your drill. Securely clamp the acrylic. Spin up the drill and put the red rouge against the wheel to rub some on to the cloth. Then push the wheel against your acrylic. Do this until its nice and shiny.

Hope this helps.

I appreciate your suggestion, Oliver, but I think this will come out looking neater.

You really have to see the piece in person, but having the edges dressed won't detract at all from the floating effect because they are nowhere near the drives or the pumps. You can't really judge by those last pictures as the vertical piece is laying at an angle. When it's sitting vertical, the entire middle part of the pane that's visible in the windows and in the immediate area of the components will still be transparent.

I've worked to get the edges of the acrylic smooth and shiny like you're suggesting (used 800 grit and a heat gun), but I think they still look unfinished without something on the edges. They need to be framed with something--just like every window always does--and I think this will accomplish that nicely.

In addition, the intersection between the shelves and the vertical pane where the solvent cement bonded the acrylic left little traces behind that you can see at the joins if you look close enough. This edge trim will help hide those areas and give them a nice, clean look.
