There's no visible seams because the glass one is blown inside a mold in one solid piece. But I honestly prefer yours because I prefer the diffuse light over the visible lightbar.

I would love to see you do this again and add a scene to the base. It would be beautiful with your lighting. I'm sure people would order them. It was beautiful already, but I saw a serene and peaceful world waiting to be born inside. A secret place. Btw, I like yours better. Although the other was smoother, yours was more eye pleasing and peace inspiring. I could get lost in it.

@JustYourAverageWeirdo Similar how? Shaped like blown glass? I doubt it, as resin tends to drip and take a VERY long time to set as compared to glass solidifying as it's being blown. Now you COULD do it with plastic, as that is also often injection molded (though it's usually vacuumed into place by sucking air out of the mold rather than air blown into place like glass.) But resin isn't going to go from liquid to solid fast enough to stay in place without drips.

@M water_moon With all this in mind, they probably could've done something similar with resin.
WanderingWolfe Yıl önce
While I do like the smooth seams of the purchase, I find the crafted piece overall more aesthetically pleasing. Your facets seem to show their color individually, the light is far better implemented. Overall, I think yours is simply higher quality. The only real win the purchase has for me is that it is glass. But that's not a huge factor compared to everything else.

So just an FYI: be very careful cutting plastic film with a laser. Most Iridescent film is PET which is perfectly fine to cut with a laser, but be very careful to not cut vinyl based films as they off gas hydrochloric acid which can not only be dangerous to breath in, but can also ruin the mirrors in the laser.

@רוני שביט ריביר on the one hand if you break a laser cutter by blindly imitating an entertainment channel that's kind of on you, but on the other hand I would also prefer them being honest and open about their precautions rather than doing a cheap editing/writing trick to increase excitement, it'd be more respectful of their audience
M water_moon

@Miss B but E&K didn't say that they had checked beforehand. In fact, with editing, they make it look like they just dove in head first and started experimenting. Watching their trouble with applying the film my first thought was "hey, I have some Cricut stuff that might work for that, I bet it might be easier and cheaper!" but it's vinyl, which I don't find out could be VERY dangerous until the comments. And waiting til the comments for warnings is ALWAYS a no-no.

They are both beautiful. What I want to see: when the non-servicable light breaks, take the bought one apart and install your kind of base into it. The resulting No 3 would probably beat both in the category aeshtecs.

Very much this! Since cast glass isn't really a diy-able thing, I was hoping they might use the diffusion grating to make a mold and resin it just since that's closer in feel to the cast glass of the bought lamp, but I am ALL about DIY repairs and upgrades to keep things out of landfills.

Malcadicta Yıl önce
They're both really good, just completely different vibe. The buy is more of a fantasy-like soft glowing crystal and the DIY version certainly looks fits more in the sci-fi or maybe some cyberpunk-like aesthetics. The only red flag for me when it comes to the buy one is the lack of ability to change the lightbulb. I mean I'm paying all this money, I'd like my lamp to last longer then life of its lightbulb.
piratekit 10 aylar önce
I like the more smokey look of the expensive one, but since the buy version has a spray on finish which gave it that iridescence, I wonder if there is a finish that can be sprayed on to acrylic to come close to that (like frosted glass?) But the made version's sharp lines is a good look too, just not my jam. If the buy version DOESN'T have an LED or an easy way to get in to replace the bulb, that would completely kill it for me.

@Kaisea my thoughts as well buy the glass one and make your own light's.

@cryofpaine It is absurd that you can't change the bulb. It's honestly a shame because then you could possibly put their light array in the bought shell.

Plus I don't like the look of the light in the buy. It's just a big glowing rod in the middle. The diffused leds in the base of theirs looks so much cleaner.

On the other side, in a house with a cat, the glued to base is safer and more stable/sturdy. I do hope that there is really a way to change the light short of removing the entire base, but if you want to get down to it, E&K's light base will have to be completely remade once their LEDS start to fail too....

Aurionn Yıl önce
As someone who uses CNC lasers in my shop for around 7 years, I may be able to answer a few of your concerns about the laser. Highly reflective materials can degrade the cutting ability since less of the energy is being absorbed by the material, but it won't reflect back into your tube or damage your machine. The focus length is determined by the lens but power and shape of the beam rapidly diverges and diffuses like a cone on the other side of your focal length. It can't travel back across the mirrors once it goes through the lens because its no longer a cylindrical straight beam like it was before the lens. It can of course damage your eyes so make sure to wear your eye protection with proper filters for the right wavelength as usual. Co2 is 10.6 um and some lasers have filters on the glass viewing window too. As for the "flashes" seen at 6:49 the honeycomb table is reflecting some energy back upwards as the light passes over each metal cell in the honeycomb. Sometimes these reflections can score the underside of your work depending on the power/speed. It can mean that the power is a little too high for the application since a lot of unused energy is remaining after the work is done and the cut is finished. For higher powers, blade tables are good for heavier cuts and remove the frequency of this "backflash" on the underside of your work. Lasers are fun but deserve respect so your cautious approach around them is healthy! Happy making!

The light reflecting back won't get to the tube, yes, but it will absolutely create more heat in the lens and potentially crack it. Those are wear items anyway but that's a LOT more wear on it.

@M water_moon Actually, you can do pieces that are several inches in size. There are some beautiful as well as funky fused glass pieces that are done in the microwave kiln. They could do jewelry, ornaments, various art pieces, etc... I am sure they could even do keyboard keys. Ones imagination is the only limit. Having a microwave set aside that you don't use for food is no different than having any other tool set aside that you don't use for food. With their creativity and artistic abilities I am sure they could create very unique items.
M water_moon

@Mary Swann yeah but that's all very limited in size. I think the resin keys/dice are the only things they've made that are really that small. Plus besides the kiln you need a microwave you don't want to make food in. They have the lampworking tools, they'd probably be able to make marbles at least if they really wanted to do more glass work.

@sy mark There are paints that contain pigment particles that can reflect light in multi directions, but the pigment is going block light going through it, it's more like micro fine glitter than what the tin salt does with glass. Now what E&K HAVE done before with resin (and I've even seen Ann Reardon from How to Cook That do it with chocolate since it's all texture) is use diffraction grating, which will make rainbows from any light reflected off of it.
M water_moon
M water_moon Yıl önce
@C M Iridized glass is made by spraying metal salts on it while it's still red hot. Ferric (iron) chloride for more of an orange, or "marigold" coloring, with Chloride of antimony on top of that for more of a blue tone, and stannous (tin) chloride for the more typical rainbow effect. If it were dicro (it's not!) it would be metal vapors in a vacuum chamber, have to be done while the glass was still flat, and cost on the order of $2000. No really, a flat circle of dirco glass is 18" in diameter and cost around $200 all by itself, and dicro does not like the kinda temps you need for mold blowing so it'd have to be capped before the pressing and def hand done. The buy they have is a factory piece that was sprayed with stannous chloride as soon as it was taken from the mold before it was annealed.
sy mark

Had to google it, the Corning Museum of Glass shows a video using heated stannous chloride crystals and then holding the glass over the gas to get the iridescent effect. Are there any paints for plastics that can create the same effect? More research is needed, this is such a cool Make :-)

I prefered yours because both the light and angled corners where better - crystals don't have wavy surfaces! BTW You could also make a 'Christmas Star' type design from sheet materials that slotted together or do what BobbyDukeArts did with the recent pictue frame and tear diffraction grating plastic up into shards and drop them into clear epoxy. It looked flipp'in amazing!

@M water_moon I don’t think that the layers over the light are glued on top of the light the layers are glued together but they are staying in place because of the frame surrounding it that is the gold mirror. So it is removable however I am with you on the fact that it would be harder to find a replacement if it was sold commercially vs a simple led bulb
M water_moon
M water_moon Yıl önce
Their light is no more serviceable. Once the LEDS start to fail, the specialty strip is under all those glued layers too.... So if you can get through the glues on either lamp to get to the light element itself, unlike what looks like a florescent tube, specialty LED strips and custom milled parts aren't going to be very readily available.....
THIS is something you’ve made that I would so damn buy! And the charms are cute!

Love your version - the facet reflection just amped up the cool factor.

I think yours looked so much better in the dark room. The lighting is great. And a tie is totally fair.

The best way I've found to describe the difference is that the BUY is more fantasy-like (glowing fairy gem) and the DIY is more sci-fi like (very modern and mirror-y). I love both and would have a hard time choosing too!

I would 100% buy your DIY lamp over the glass one. I love how your lamp turned out!

I do like the rounded edges of the buy, but yours wins hands down! I would love to have 3 or 4 of them! The buy is just too bright and the facets on the diy are PHENOMENAL

I genuinely like the lamping system you all used over the manufactured one.

To get the smooth edges, I'd say they use a vacuum machine. They get a sheet of plastic, melt it (sort of) and then just push it onto a mould. I used one in highschool so I can't remember the exact name of the machine but it was pretty cool

But it’s glass, I think you can vacuum form glass right?

yours is like a lit up clear crystal. you get that gorgeous rainbow effect, the movement, the depth. the bought one looks like a lit up moonstone. it's milkier, and mysterious, but you lose the depth. i like both, tbh. usually I prefer your versions over bought ones, but seriously... they are both gorgeous & i'd love to have both types!

I think I’d pick your DIY over the buy! It might just for my personal aesthetic more, but I truly think it looks much cooler!

having their stream vods on in the background when I'm having a bad anxiety or overwhelm day is the most calming thing... even when I'm not particularly interested in what they're playing they're just calming to listen to

The store bought one feels like Barbie movie magic gems, and the diy one looks kinda like the philosophers stone to me? Like orange and red fire vibes. Very cool!

I like the Buy's smooth rounded edges and brightness. But I like the DIY's base light better. DIY light is softer and more hidden.

I like the sharpness and mainly smoothness of yours more. And you absolutely won in the light department. I'd definitely bought yours. I had blast watching your video yet again, so much fun!

I personally prefer the sharper look of yours, plus the glowing edges look awesome. Also, the mirror finish on yours looks so pretty, kinda like a kaleidoscope. But the metal base on the BUY looks a bit better. Overall your DIY version is much better in my opinion, I'd just make the base a bit thicker in wood, so it looks a bit more aesthetic

I like the one you made more. The sharp edges make it look more crystaline. Plus the sides are much smoother which seems more appropriate. The reflections inside yours change the light colors in a way the store bought doesnt even compare.
