I just put my photos on my facebook, so hopefully the pictures are going to show up now.Pics aren't showing in the post.. Might wanna try a host like imgur.
On the glyphs, you might wanna see if the next one you get done can be laser engraved. A guy did a kryptonite key from smallville with the engravings, and loaded em with titanium white paint, and it looked terrific.
Nice catch EyeofSauron! I couldn't figure out how to do a transparent colored part in Solidworks, so I just went with clear for the render.its awesome
one thing tho, the scouters dont have a clear visor
its either green or red
I had a friend who "etched" his glass coffee table. He taped off the design on the back of it and misted it with grey primer. peel off the tape and voi la what appeared to be a nice etched design.
Very interesting ideas. I'll probably try both methods because I plan on making at least a couple more of these, just for fine-tuning.If you want a cheap and easy way to get the scouter readings on there, you could always go for a water slide decal. Applied right, doesn't even look a decal. Let me know, I could print out some for you if you can't find an etcher. Just pay for the stamp on the envelope.
There aren't any more pep files that I know of... yet. I made this one myself in solidworks, and if people are interested I could go into making more!Ahh I knew someone would beat me to this! Been wanting to make one for a long time. Looks great so far. Are there more pep files out there for different designs?
