Step 0: Laser Cut Parts¶
New parts used in this step (see the Parts List for details):
- Two acrylic sheets
If you do not have access to a laser cutter, you can order the laser cut parts from an online laser cutting service.
0.1 Paint Acrylic Sheets¶
Spray paint one side of the first acrylic sheet red. Spray paint one side of the second acrylic sheet blue. These colors will help us identify the top and bottom of each sheet and help ensure that we connect all pieces to the correct side.
0.3 Laser Cut the Top (Blue) Pattern¶
Place the blue acrylic sheet in the laser cutter with the blue side facing up. After executing the cut, carefully remove the pieces from the sheet and remove any plastic still stuck in a hole.
