    some panels

    3 panels waiting before engraving, they still smell like fresh paint
    so I don't think the paint is hard enough. 2x4mm. acryl.

    Re: some panels

    I dont have access to a CNC so i was going to try to use plexiglass and then print the DARK black ink onto a sheet of plastic and then make the words white. Wouldn't that work or do you guys have a better idea?

    that can work,but 1 sheet black print is not enough to block the light

    best results gave me 2 transparants/overhead prints covered with 1 paper,
    all with 1 glue side all laserprinted, and afterwards clear matt laquer
    or laminate it to protect. positioning it real perfect is quite hard.

    you can consider going to printshop, they have better(darker black) printers.
    and can print on 0.5 mm. white foil.

    Re: some panels

    Yeah thats what i was thinking was going to a print shop and let them print it with there laser printers. Was thinking about maybe trying to get them to print it on that plastic paper that a resturant would use up on there menus. so your saying print 2 of them that are the same and then put one clear piece on top to protect it?

    Re: some panels

    Really awesome looking panels! Really top-notch! Care to share your g-code files? I would love to cut a set of these.

    388th, what panels do you need? Maybe some of us can cut you some and send them to you... My machine isn't big enough to cut MIPs, but just about anything else.

    Re: some panels

    They are nice... I'm a ways from that quality. I'm busy ordering new bits and plastic. can you say emergency stop switch? That's my next project.

    BuddyM.... I'm with you... how about a G-Code section the downloads? I'm getting discouraged with my CNC. Can't seem to get the speed right. I need to create something to keep going.
