|shape the acrylic culvert like a balloon. the round part of the balloon in front of the led and the led where you would tie it off. before you cut set the led in direction you want and trace out the angle of light you get. make the "balloon" in this angle and you should get a lot more diffusion.|
|i don't know if you could make it glow any brighter, you might go blind! it might look better with superbright red LED's, the go with the theme more. :D also quake 3 r0>|

|Quake doesn't sux!!|
|@ Anonymous - Thats personal preference and a total noob reply because it has no relation to the topic here.|
Topic: Very nice, not many have been unique with theirs lately.
|you can use a butane torch on the edge of the plexi to make it turn clear.|
|earendil: its not finished yet ;)|
|Ah :) Wanna give us the pic of your computer in the "Case mods"-section? :P|
|Earendil: the theme on my computer is red/blue and i have a lot of things that where red (my neonmoded keyboard,power led etc.) so i decided 2 make the pad blu insted =)|
|I think that red would be a nicer colour, since red is the color that you're thinking of when mentioning Quake. Howevever, it is an nice mod. :)|
It's nice. ;)
|If you sanded and polished the edges to a very smooth and transperent finish, then light will escape the medium pretty easily. Sanding the edges so they aren't as clear and have a murky white finish means that they would absorb/diffuse and scatter the light, and thus would glow more brightly.|
|Qballcious: im new with dremels so it was pretty hard for me =)|
Sleman: should it be rought or smoth ?? (grovt eller fint ?)
|Take sandpaper and sand the edges, that will make it glow more. (sandpappra kanterna)|
|some ppl cant be frugged|
|How hard could the corners have been? Just put the bought mousepad on the plexiglas and trace it. cut out and sand smooth.|
|Very sweet man. Very bright glow (atleast as it looks from the pictures). Nice rounded corners ;) As for amplifying the light, there really isnt a lot you can do for that. Probably the most reasonable solution would be to add another LED in there. I'm not sure how you positioned your LEDs so I can't tell you anything exact. You would have to create a new pad or something to do this but I would suggest using 3 or 5 LEDs in a daisy form circle in the cinter of the pad. Hopefully, someone else will have a better answer though :D Awesomeness...|
