I’m designing a raspberry pi project box. I want to have big light-up bold face text on the top of the box similar to the way Apple does their logo. It will say … “HANK” and pretty much cover the entire box which will be about …idk 3x5" by 1" deep. …So the top of the box will look like this:
I figure the way to do this would be to get some frosted acrylic, use the laser cutter at the library to cut out the letters, and put some LEDs behind them in the case. I’m making the case in Blender.
Is there a right way to do this or do I just have to experiment until I find the right way? What do you think about using frosted acrylic? Any suggestions for the type of LED to use? Any suggestions for how to join the cut out letters to the rest of the case? I was thinking leave a lip for the letters to sit on and then just glue them to that.
