It had been a while since I had done any work with wood/acrylic/perspex but I was surprised how easy it was to make. Really easy to be honest but in saying that I have enough tools to get it done. There are plenty of people out there who can't afford the tools even tho its easy.

 

Being in Australia its really hard and expensive to buy anything like that if you can't make it yourself. :-) Keep us updated on your friends side panel attempt :-)

I would love to see if there were more Aussies out there with a 600T looking for a side panel because I would seriously consider doing a few for sale once I have another crack at it.
I would make a video of the case with the panel and put on youtube,also advertise on gumtree or even ebay....When you make the other panel just make two,then if or when you get orders you can order materials and then make and ship them out,i wish you the best,once again nice work....

What type of acrylic do I need? I am pretty confident that I can make one myself. How do you get the plastic handles on the acrylic though?

Hey AlDyer,

 

I don't know what measurement system you guys are on in Finland but I used 10mm thick (or 3/8 inch Imperial) Clear Acrylic (Perspex/Plexiglass)

 

For the handles you just use the standard ones out of your current side panel. There are 4 plastic clips that hold it in. You will have to take them out to trace the outline of the side panel anyways so you can mark where you need to cut the holes.

post #12276 of 18196
Ok, one more question, how does it stay on since the original panel has "clips" on the bottom?

Also yeah we have the metric system, which is superior biggrin.gif

If I order a 600x600mm lasercut sheet of clear acrylic (10mm thick) can I just cut the corners? Hard to find acrylic here biggrin.gif. But is that enough?

I priced originally a piece 600x600mm and the quote was $79, I changed it to 500x600 and it only cost $54, which was more than enough. I had a little left over.

 

If you check out CyberDruidtheModGod on YouTube, he actually cuts and basically glues a little run/clip on the bottom of the panel. I wasn't a keen on that so I cut the acrylic slightly larger on the ridges at the bottom

See the noticeable point on the end

 

 

 

The White panel and the clear panel to show the extra length

 

This is the 'gutter' at the bottom where it slots down into

from the inside you can see it dropping down into it

 

The acrylic just sits snug into it

 

 

Sorry about the quality of the photos, I took them just now. The acrylic door has a little movement top and bottom but this is only because its a flat sheet, the regular door has curvature.

Alright thanks. I think I will have to go get a sheet of acrylic from somewhere, because 600x600 is a bit tough to ship. I don't think I can get 600x500. Only other option if I recall correctly was 600x400 frown.gif

Unfortunately 600x400 wont work, 400mm is too short, the dimensions are 450h x520w

post #12280 of 18196
Yup I know, measured them myself earlier :S Oh and I forgot about one more question hahaha biggrin.gif How do you cut the holes for the handles? I think I have a jigsaw, but I obviously can't cut holes with that
