|Go to a photo shop and ask for a slide frame for medium-format pictures. The transparent area should be about 5.5 by 4 cm. The advantage is that the glass is very thin, and thinner the glass, better the final result. |
The surface can be any non conductive material: glass, plexyglass, correx, wood, and so on.
|Choose what you want to display inside the transparent area. In my case, it's a ON/OFF switch. The sensor will be a single key, but I drawed two distinkt keys for ON and OFF. If you want to stick with the LCARS look, you should use only colors that are listed in this table. |
Many thanks to Bill Morris, author of mighty LCARS24, for the new LCARS colors table, that I have copied. You can find it following this thread: http://www.joseralat.com/forum/showthread.php?p=8396
|Here it is. I've added some decoration in LCARS style. |
You must create two version of the slide: a black and white one (with white where the panel should be illluminated) and a color one. This is my version.
|These are my printed slides.|
They're printed on the transparent sheets used for overhead projectors. If you have both a laser and a inkjet printer, I suggest to print the BW copy with the laser printer.
|Now you must find some translucent material (the plastic from a liquid whas machine detersive it's ok). Cut a piece just bigger than the printed slides, but smaller than the frame.|
|With some transparent adesive tape. fix the color print to the white plastic square.|
|Attach, in the same way, all but one of the black and white prints.|
|Use the adesive tape to attach the last black and white slide to the inside of the frame.|
|This is how the panel should look, when the white plastic square is temporary placed under the frame.|
|Go to next part...|
