This week I’m showing off the trophies I made at AVCon!
Once again, these were made of laser cut acrylic. The dragon design was done by design-team member Dima. I worked out the trophy design from that.
The overall look is simpler than last year’s – I had a bit less time to mess around with the designs.
Here’s the first prototype:
And here are a bunch of completed trophies!
This year I sent a bunch of the laser work off to be done by a local business. They were great to work however the cutting side of the acrylic seemed to pick up dust or discolouration or something. It was rather disappointing to find the finish on some of the trophies wasn’t as nice as I’d have liked. I also found out just how drastically the thickness of acrylic sheets can vary and how different laser cutters can have noticeably different kerf widths.
