    Are you going to do a followup instructable about how to etch those images onto the black painted layer? Those images are awesome by the way - what was the method used to create them? I'm looking to do something similar with waveforms.

    I'm assuming that he painted the backside of the acrylic, and then put it under the lasercutter, engraving away the paint to let the light shine trough. (you can also do this with a mirror, might combine very nicely!)

    This is amazing! Thanks for this.

    Hey great DIYing dear friend. Can you upload a .svg file instead of the .ai ???

    Thanks you!

    Otro instructable en el que necesitas una maquina de 500€ para hacer una cosa de 5€. ¿De verdad estais bien de la cabeza?

    I'm unclear about the coloring and etching steps.

    you can also reverse the led strip to get a brighter border and add a second strip facing inward to light up etching. use white led for border and rgb strip fo etching. this way u get a brighter border independent from colored inside. I have done this type of lighting before on a pc to backlight the motherboard in case.
