More prototyping

For my upcoming prototype I tried to cast different materials into the resin in order to conduct the heat from the LEDs as good as possible.

You can see the outcome in the following pictures.

I realised that even though aluminium conducts the heat quite well, I might have to use more or even thicker material to achieve the right heat for the pigments to turn transparent.

In the following picture you can see how the black resin gets transparent through heating.

You can also see how the light looks if it is diffused by the opaque resin.

The next step will be to build a workslike model for the upcoming interim presentation.

It’s still a long way from all the experimenting to a well manufactured product but for now I am happy with my progress.
