Pneumatic Panel

Many new features come together in this panel. I could use my new laser cutter again and had an idea for a new technic to create the two colored sections. And this was the first time I installed a dual needle gauge and saw it in action.

To create the two colored sections I had to make cut outs into the white panel first. Then engrave and cut out the inlays from a black painted piece of white acrylic. These cut outs had to be 0.14mm wider than the cut outs in the white panel to come out with a really tight fit. This offset depends on the thickness of your laser beam.

Materials used:

  • 3mm transparent and white acrylic
  • 5 big ON-OFF switches
  • 3 ON-OFF-ON switches
  • 2 push buttons
  • switch cap build from a molded cap and/or 8mm aluminum tube
  • 4 Boeing type 1 knob
  • 9 yellow annunciators
  • 2 green annunciators
  • 2 blue annunciators
  • 4 15 mm hex standoffs
  • 4 30 mm female hex standoffs
  • 4 30 mm male hex standoffs
  • LED stripes for backlighting mounted on a HDF plate
  • 3mm HDF plate
  • 2 servo motors
  • 4 mm acrylic rod
  • 7 mm acrylic tube

The download package contains all the files you need to cut out and engrave your own panel as well as the gauge.
