So I saw some cool led signs that people were making on Instagram, which made me want to challenge myself to take if up a notch!
Soooooooo. I used a piece of 8mm thick acrylic cast sheet from Home Depot to make the body of the sign. There is a middle piece that is only 5mm thick which when milled out like a frame creates a channel for the rain to fall. I figured that any width smaller than a rain drop would probably work... IDK lol. That probably has nothing to do with it, but 5mm it is.
After the glorious hours of drafting in Fusion 360, and having to think in negative and reverse I was satisfied with the model. Time to cut some stoof!
I 3D printed the Impeller for the pump on the Cr-10
After everything was cut out I used this amazing acrylic solvent to put everything together--
Me and Wifey put some water in it annnnd it didn't work .... because of air in the pump. We added some more water and presto it worked great. Thanks for checking out this post! More to come.
