    This was a really cool and easy project to create and we hope this inspires the community to create something even more epic!

    The start of this project was simple! We just hit 10K followers on Instagram, so we thought we would make a cool project incorporating the IG Logo. Here are the vectors that were created in Adobe Illustrator (these can also be created in V-Carve Desktop) it really comes down to personal preference.

    Bringing the vectors over to V-Carve Desktop, it was now time to set up the dimensions of the job as well as the text element. The job was centered in the material for ease of manufacturing.

    IMG_20190923_153636699_PORTRAIT.jpg This project consisted of 3 pieces of Clear OpenBuilds Cast Acrylic. The first piece was milled with the V-Bit engraving and placed in the middle of the 20X60 V-Slot. The second piece was painted with this cool "Looking Glass" spray paint (which worked great) this was used as the back piece of the infinity mirror. The third piece was tinted with a two way mirror tint ( the visible side obviously facing the viewers direction) and this was placed first in the V-Slot frame.

    This is the one way mirror tint that was used on the acrylic piece that was used first in the V-Slot frame. Some soapy water was used to keep the surface slick while the tint was placed and squeegeed. The excess was then cut off the edges of the piece.

    The frame was built next which consisted of 4 pieces of Black 20x60 V-Slot, 8 90 Degree Makerlinks, and Spool of LED Lights. The Makerlinks definitely came in handy for this build!

    The LED strip was ran through the middle slot of the 20X60 only (to highlight the engraved piece of acrylic).

    This is the finished project!

    The effect is amazing! Hope everyone enjoys this project! Make sure to leave comments below if you have any questions!
