2024-04-26 (F) Weekly Summary

I found glow-in-the-dark glue sticks in my stock and experimented with different-sized blobs over the LEDs. They had to be large enough to spread the intense light and did not do well with shapes.
Easier on the eyes

I stumbled through the bezels for the back piece. Each of them required vector and raster assets. One side used black solder mask, and the other was metallic so we could choose the best look or mix them.
Dice tower back bezels

I made the side panel bezels, which were no easier than the back. I experimented with manual drafting but could not get the proportions right. When I finished, I added the eight pieces to my cart, and they were approximately $40 USD.
Reversible side bezels

I wrapped up the shelves and sides. The shelves had attractive "STAND CLEAR" caution signs at the edges. I made one that exposed the yellow board underneath and the other printed in metallic silver. The sides were mirror images so that I can use them interchangeably.
"No Step," shelf and techno side panel

The designer and I opted for customizable stickers for the cyberpunk dice tower instead of video screens due to cost. We researched lenticular images that change as you tilt them. I tested different line spacings to measure the lens characteristics and found that the best results came from the 1.00mm spacing. I plan on varying the line width to see how it affects the outcome.
Lenticular experiment

I performed a second test using colored lines with different thicknesses. I hoped to find one that changed from red to green to black as I moved the lens, but the vertical lines were always visible.
