Tell us about yourself!
yes sorry late replay
Hi sorry I only just saw this - I guess it's a bit late to start talking.bestlouis
no, not using acid - that makes a cloudy look. Also acid is dangerous!
actually acid etch is not good in the sun. It's also nasty stuff, maybe best just use the laser.
yes that's fine - feel free. I have done other samples.I should load them up soon.cheerslouis
Thank you :D
The top wave contour is have cut with a glass cutter. Please see the video above to get an understanding of the process method on hand glass cutting.
Yes totally - though I'm not sure about gluing and the glue makes the object clear. Single unglued sheets of any material will be hard to see through. They start to work a little like a 2 way mirror. You could also cut all the way through the plexiglass. I have etched the glass instead of cutting through because I needed strength in the material.
That was actually hand cut though I made some ocean waves data in Maya and sliced that up the same way. I just printed out the slices on A3 paper and place it under the glass for cutting.
Yes that is actually my overall goal it to make a life size block of glass look like water and have the figure floating inside the block. See the small samples. I'm going to re edit the girl data
Cheers thank you :D
