    Yeah but unfortunately not a good one !
    After having troubles with delivery of the plexiglasrods to the cutter (took 2 weeks), the rods bent because of the heat of the laser so we had to get creative and glued several layers of plexi together to get the desired thickness, the plexi arrived today .... IN PIECES !!!!

    Now we are going to claim back from PostNL, redo the work etc etc ...

    Its 3mm UV reactive and 15mm RODS
    There had to be some real rough handling for it to break like that.
    Shattered on 1 side and broken on the other.

    :eek: Shit ASPHIAX! Suck's to hear about your problem's, hopefully those guy's @ the shipper's get off their butt's and get that sorted for you ASAFP! Maybe you need to remind them the stuff inside is very very VERY VERY fragile :eek:

    Is there anyway to lower the temp on the laser if you need to make new piece's? If they can't is there any other way to cut the plexiglass?

    Hopefully you get some better luck man :rockout:

    read threw all of this and am quite amazed at your work. I will be following this tread close. As for the shippers working for UPS I tell you I would have wrapped the peices in large bubble wrap just as a pre-caution. Sadly enough I have seen all the "your not susposted to do that's"

    good luck with your build and hopefully everything gets sorted out and you get some compensation for all the work and money it takes to get your custom peices made!

    Now with the AT-AT almost finished its time to take care of another build I was doing.
    Sometimes its a good thing to step away from a build for a while and then return to it.
    We decided to change some things as you will see in the new render video.
    Nix is making a kickass compilation of the scenes to put on the base right now !
    Let us know what you think !

    Because of this new setup we are able to move the monkey around and place it on the other side. That was the main reason why we couldnt have a door or a window that can open, the monkey was in the way. Now that has been changed i can start looking at a way to close it up completely.
    A door would be cool but the hinges will be visible and that's a no-no. A door would also need to put somewhere when its opened meaning i would have a large piece of material sticking out. Maybe the best way is to place a sort of film on the inside of the plexi and shut all the lights off, as the case is going to be powdercoated black it might be dark enough to pull off.
    Any idea's here would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks for the update/s ASPHIAX, looking good! Can you not find reverse hinges or internal hinges, if they even exist?

    Excuse the late reply, still VERY interested in your guy's mod so please keep us updated :)
