This blog documents my research using 3D modeling and digital fabrication techniques for design.
Hi Mark, I am creating a project with a similar technique. Did you have any trouble lighting the acrylic? Where did you put your LEDS?
Hi Carly, I had a strip of LEDs mounted to a piece of wood. I covered up everything on the base with a black cloth and only exposed the slit along the line of LEDs. So at times the figure is not even touching the lights, but the effect was the same. Nice bright illumination to all the edges. I don't think you'll have any trouble getting the edges to light up for you.
