Fabrication WK3: Laser Cutter
This week I tried to make an Acrylic light with LED base. I begin the process with a red transparent acrylic board, spray painted black so the laser engraved parts will let the light shine through once placed into an LED light base.
I did two iterations of the laser cut because the engraving was too shallow at first and the light did not shine through with the LED. I made the engraving deeper with the second laser cut by engraving twice but the light still does not shine through.
LED lights can shine through if placed behind the board but not from under as I had hoped.
