Re:Color-controlled LED Light Box 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
The size of my light box (24"*40") is quite big. I was therefore wondering whether setting a lot of DF pieces on top would have my acrylic and lexan sheets bend and eventually break. I therefore thought of putting some support underneath that would be transparent so that there would be little shadows to be seen. I then acquired 1" wide acrylic rods which I cut and polished. These are very sturdy and would provide great support. I also thought that they would not give too much shadows. Finally, these inspired me to make flight stands to be used in fantasy RPG gaming and I think I will sell a few to interested DF fans here.

Anyway, here's what they look like once glued with epoxy at the bottom of the box:



Unfortunately, these provide some kind of spherical shadow upon the translucent acrylic. I might remove them altogether. We'll see.

Here's a little electrical update!

A month ago, I received my 5 amps Power Supply. Unfortunately, the brightness of the LEDs from the 2nd strip was still uneven. Plugged separately, both did light up at 100% though. I then decided to buy an LED RGB extension cable (because I had already stuck both LED strips) and a splitter (less than $5) to plug both LED strips in parallel, not in series. It worked! Now, the light is strong and uniform in my LED light box.



Next step, figure out how to do proper low-light photography with the cheap camera I have!

I asked a friend to bring his fancy camera (at least fancier than mine by all means...) and his tripod and we took a few pictures yesterday. This was done once our bi-weekly game night was over so we had the time only to do only a few pictures. The setup I did to showcase my LED light box is an adventuring party raiding a fire dragon's lair at the bottom of a volcano. Here are the pictures!!!

The LED light box was set at full-red all the time and we tested a few exposure times with various lighting conditions. I don't know why sometimes the lava would show yellowish in the pictures but I like it!

p.s. Thank you Simon for the camera. ;-)

Awesome set up and pics...although I'm cursing you under my breath for possessing so many cavern floor pieces, lol.

I can truly see the brilliance of your flight stand in those photos, too. Great job!

The light box turned out great biowizard! The glowing lava, glowing crystals, and dragon make for an epic setup. A nice showcase for several of your projects.
