Astro City Light Panel/Artwork holder CAD files?

Post by Lazyace » March 21st, 2019, 6:23 pm

Hi all,

Am looking to source CAD files for this part of an original Astro City: https://i.imgur.com/C2h0Bhx.jpg

A friend of mine scanned the acrylic in but had issues converting the raster image into a proper CAD vector. Anyone have an accurate scan of this?

Many thanks

That's a hard piece to scan, because it's curved. However, if someone is able to do it (maybe with a handheld scanner?), I can vector it.

EDIT: thinking about this, originally it is a flat piece. Maybe you could flatten one with some heat and then bending it in the opposite direction? I'm not about to try it on mine, though!

Thanks mate. I think I've found someone who will scan and cut these now. Having a couple of different people try, will let you know if it does/doesn't work out.

Did you manage to get one of these made?
I was after an Astro, but may end up getting a NAC instead and had a thought to replace the speaker portion as it appears to be the same size. 8-)
