    25.5 hours, my largest print yet. Glad the power didn't go out!

    Once the frosted glass decal arrived I bought some clear acrylic and cut it to size. The finished result was pretty good.

    The acrylic was cut slightly too wide, so I tried cleaning it up without much success. I cut a fresh piece of acrylic and applied the other copy of the decal I ordered.

    I changed the original vision slightly by removing the option of doing an internet speed test. I decided I didn't want to deal with having to redesign and reprogram if the internet speed test API changed or went offline.

    For the frosted decal I used the website BannerBuzz with the image I designed.

    I designed the enclosure in Autodesk Fusion 360 to be 3D printed.
