We’ve thought about getting into etching for a while now and I really like the look of Ortur gear (master 2 - 20W)
What I’m wondering though is how I’d actually do one of the tasks I have for it in the workshop. I’ve got a lot of panels to replace on equipment, these are thin plastic with LEDs behind illuminating the writing for each switch and I was thinking I could replace them with acrylic.
I’m just not sure how to ensure the LEDs would be visible without fully cutting through the plastic. Am I missing something really obvious? Be brutal please if I am! We’d want to use black acrylic to match what’s there already. I’d post a photograph but I’m not allowed to travel just now (COVID) so can’t get to the shop.
As I said I’m probably being daft. I actually thought of cutting one in black and layering on a second thin clear one on top.?
