Simple and Manual LED Acrylic Sign Project

LED Acrylic Sign

A bit out of the discussion of electronics, but still on the basis of electronics that how to apply the LED circuit  in acrylic field. This is a Simple project on making LED acrylic sign. So I will share tips how to make it step by step. What is required and how to make use in LED acrylic sign.

First, this part and tools you need to making LED Acrylic Sign:
part and tool LED Acrylic Sign

Parts : 
  • Acrylic on image using Acrylic 10cm x 20cm 
  • Some Cable to connect LED with Power Supply or Battery
  • LED Strip's or you can assembled LED circuit, i will describe below.
Tools :
  • Pencil to draw sign on Acrylic Field
  • Sandpaper to sandpapering acrylic sign
  • Ruller to scratch that sign exactly at the right position
  • Cutting Plier to cut the cabel
  • Cutter to cut the wrapping layer of acrylic on the sign
  • Solder and Solder tin to soldering cable with LED Strip's or Assembled LED Circuit

If the parts and tools are ready , let's create a this LED Acrylic Sign simple project and so manual !
Take acrylic and drawing sign in reverse, in the picture below I write elcircuit.com in reverse. This function to mark the acrylic wrapper to be exfoliated. in the next step.

After you mark, peel the parts that are not exposed to a pencil.

Then rub using sandpaper, on the part of the sign. This function to refract light LED, so that the LED illumination only on the sign.

After all has been rubbed, then turn acrylic and open the wrapping on the front.

Install the the LEDs on the bottom, here I am using LED Strip, if you want to use LEDs individually, use a small 3mm Assembled LED by circuit schemes below.

Paste the LED Circuit by using glue or other adhesive.
So Cheap LED

And if the LED is already neat, supply using a 12 Volt DC voltage.
