Spent the day making this. There is also a companion piece (OFF) that will need to be wired up on Monday. It’s a bit rough and ready, but it was good to remind myself how the laser cutter works and to actually have a go at using it. The LED lettering is quite wobbly, since the holes made for the LEDs are a bit too big. They’re about 1mm, which I thought might be about the limit for laser cutting, but I think I need to experiment with smaller cuts if this prototype gets made into something more finished. Also, I need to plan the distances between LEDs better, to avoid having to solder extenders onto them; plan the corners better; and maybe solder the lot of it rather than just winding the ends together.
