Lamp – lazer printer

So for this project I choose to a do a lamp, as I loved the reference on the site, lighting up Acrylic cuts.
However I choose to work with typography. Inspired by Magritte’s “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” art, I had decided to do Ceci n’est pas une lampe; “this is not a lamp”.

I had to go through different trials (4) in order to get finally 2 clean cuts. The printer wasn’t cutting properly the typo. So I had to put down the speed to 9 and 10 to get a proper cutting.

Later I wanted to create a small stand from wood to make it stand and put the light underneath it.
cut some wood and decided to put screws  the acrylic on the wood to hold it.

One thought on “Lamp – lazer printer

  1. Nice work. It looks like you used normal acrylic for your project. If you used a special acrylic with a high level of total internal reflection, the effect would be stronger. Also, these types of lighting projects work very well with etchings incorporated into the designs.

    I love that you made a base. I’d like to see more info on that.
