Personally I'd have shot it fo-real :P
that would've been a lot more fun as well

Making the cracked acrylic 10m is complicated because I had to break it, and there I run the risk of losing the entire piece, so that's why I prefer sculpting effect, the problem of shooting in acrylic is that the effect is not cool (I got the test in an acrylic plate of the same thickness), and because the heating was more like a hole, simple, without any mark of cracked, so I do not even leaving nothing behind with the plate, leaving her alone, or else putting something behind, he also is not cool, because of the heating, it melts and is not a point "shooting", but with a hole and melting, much like the other way, so I chose to do it this way, to look like "bullet holes" in something, in this case, metal, for plastic or glass, is not with the same effect...

First test doing engraving on aluminum, making a dogtag:

Liking that new front panel.

The dogtag, not so much. The round edges are not very... round, sorry.

Those bullet holes can also act as air vents.

you can get very small diamond grinding bits for the dremel which may help you as they are like using a pencil on it

The engraving doesn't look good at all. Apart from that I'll be looking forward to what you do next
