How are you going to go with the etching, i tried some engraving on the weekend with the dremel, came out alright.
Well let me show you! This is my first time engraving/etching so bare with me. @ozzylow PM a picture of it I would love to see!
So here is my glass all drawn up
So it was an adventure! Here is a glass cutting bit for the Dremel that I have I used this with the roto-zip guide platform. I used this first to etch the outside of the shapes.
Then I used a tool used for wood carving and the roto-zip guide tool to cut out all the plastic in between the etch marks.
After a while of doing that I went back through with the fine point glass cutter to get the point on the Marker
Now that I have basically finished my piece I have relized that it is etched in there backwards after I have flipped it the correct way. WOOPS! Oh well. I have to go though with some sand paper to get rid of the extra texture and fine down the edges of it. To be honest I might just try it again with another piece of acrylic now that I know what I am doing. But here is what it looks like in the HDD casing anyways.
For those of you who don't know the game Dead Space the Marker is an ancient artifact that has been found on Aegis 7 and has created chaos though out a local settlement. It has a massive significance in the game.
I hope you like what I have for you guys today. I might get a very fine router bit to do the job next time if I do it over.
