Tempered Glass Etching - Overwatch Mercy

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently bought an SL600M to upgrade from an aging 900d. I wanted something that was kind of unique that wouldn't compromise on performance, but was smaller than the 1000D because jesus christ my desk. After getting everything mounted properly, I began to make a stencil (first time) for a free mercy design I found online. Unfortunately made the mistake of using the wrong side of the vinyl like an idiot and had to use an xacto to attempt to save the stencil and more or less ruined the first go, but I think it ended up being okay in the end. I think, with some more cable management, this will be my best looking system yet :) Hopefully my next project will go a bit smoother.

It was etched with a mixture of barium sulfate, sodium bifluoride, and sulfuric acid. Basically just eats away the top layer of the glass and changes the diffraction of light when it hits that edge.

Thanks ^^

Edit: Slightly nicer looking pictures with a bit better cable management

Double edit: I am now wondering if I should flip the ssd covers to have blackwatch up top since the red is there. hm...

I had coldzero make those for me. I'm not so good with internal LED's yet.

This is awesome!  Do you have a link to a instructions for the etching?

Nvidia actually did a pretty great step by step. They were the one I heard about this from, and with your tools I'm sure you could do it super easy :)

 

Edit: If you etch a dickbutt into a machine I'd love an inspirational namedrop 🤣

Actually, would it be cool if I etched a picture of @LinusTech head onto a sidepanel? Might be a fun challenge 😛
