Very nice! I might have to do something similar with my 3D printer...

my next plan is to make it out of mostly acrylic next which will allow me to sell them at a much lower cost. About $140

I'm not sure, I would need some funding to play around with to experiment. That way I could implement into the product. Especially since I have little knowledge of wiring or what you or others would want it to look come out looking like.

Right now my concern is cutting the letters out as acrylic as they can crack and break easily. Its impossible to have a lead-in to prevent this with certain letters like e and A.
I do tag the whole word as one piece which makes cuts cleaner and prevents me from them dropping in my machine and losing them

Revisions I know i will be doing is make the word nintendo 1/8 flat to make the VIRTUAL BOY more 3d. as well as making the VB word even thicker at 1/2 rather than 3/8

The sign should be similar to this.

Something I will look into in the far future, though I know it wonít light up at all like this. Perhaps led strips at most, but adding a thicker shell with a red transparent glass front would be very costly. I think that alone would be extra 70.

Way to difficult to keep price reasonable, 3d printing the shell is probably cheaper but I donít have one. To be honest 1.5 to 2Ē would be best result I feel.
