That turned out so well! I thought the grating was metal before reading the build log details.

thanks all.

Yeah there's a sparkle in the paint that really makes it pop out.
Even when i look very closely it's still very convincing. Couldn't be happier with how that paint job turned out.

Time will tell if it is durable enough...

Nice Job. Your CNC looks to be about the same size as mine.

Neat!

...is MDF really strong enough? I mean, are you satisfied with that aspect?

I like the look!

And yes, Illustrator CC has a graphical fillet function, it isn't a tool. Draw a rectangle, and just inside each corner there is a little circle with a dot inside. Mouse over that, click to grab it and drag in and it will fillet the corner. I have CAD software that I use for precision stuff, so I haven't played with it enough to know how to make it a specific radius.

Cool. But nonetheless isn't it unbelievably odd it was only added in recently? I mean a feature this basic should already have been in Illustrator 1!
