I have seen many cases with the engraved clear windows. I had desided engrave my wndows to give them a new look. This is not as hard as it looks just take your time and you will get good results.

Other case window instructables can be found on Instructables web site.

After looking a this look at at ( Part 2 )

Step 1: Plan Your Design

Plan your design.

Take the measurements of your window and draw whatever you want. Go for a theme or use an image. I just made some freehand drawings of flames.
Nice guide, I'm gonna engrave a intel, nvidia and physix logo on my homemade all plexi testbench.
u can't really see It I recommend getting LEDs and angling them just right so the engraving is lit up
This didn't work to well for me so that why I did the part 2. It turned out so much nicer that way.
do you engrave right through the paper?
The paper with the design is placed behind the plexiglas/acrylic
hey, nice instructable. lol a bit similar to mine, but nice nonetheless :)<br/><br/>feel free to post both parts in my group:<br/><a href="https://www.instructables.com/group/modthis/">https://www.instructables.com/group/modthis/</a><br/><br/>long live the cube case!!! lol<br/>
lol oops, seems u did already. well, in that case welcome to the group :P
I has just thought it was a good place to put them.
Part 2 is going to be worked on this weekend. So if anyone is reading this it should be up by Sunday night or Monday morning.
You should try sandblasting, It's easier to see, and looks great with leds. I made this a couple years ago.
Sandblasting does givea good effect. My dads shop has a sand blaster but the grit is to cource for plesiglas or anything soft. Would be like hitting it with a firehose. Im not all the way done with my windows yet. 2 weeks at least and you will see what im aiming at. Im away at school and im not sure if they would like me using a dremal in the dorm.
very nice, i would recommend installing an led at the very edge of the perspex, you kno so it shines through it better, this would really show it off! i like your case, but i think its in desperate need of a paint job, maybe blue flames?
I actuly engraved the windows to help draw attention away from the scratches. I had a UV CCFL light inside but the inverter fried making my case look plain. Part 2 is to make it look tron like with only the engraving showing.
Pictures did not keep the captions, but the first one show the scratches in the right part of the window and the second picture this is a old picture when I first got the case.
Well, as long as your gaming in the nite it should look pretty hot!
Wow! Really nice effect. Looks great, and did you make the LED fan yourself? Nice template by the way, can't wait until part 2 comes out.
