I'm being totally original here and making a budget Qlock
. I know people have done it before but it seems like a fairly accessible first arduino project because there's some code out there I can start from and adapt
The bit I'm struggling with is the surface with the words cut out - I had planned on getting it cut on vinyl and then sticking that to the inside of a picture frame, but it seems to cost loads for a single cut sheet of vinyl
... so my question to the community is - does anyone have a vinyl cutter and wouldn't mind cutting a 400 x 500mm sheet for me from a supplied file? I'll happily pay for the vinyl, shipping and any other costs incurred, and do my bit for the community by posting a writeup with code!
Alternatively, laser-cut mountboard would work if anyone's got both lying around...
Alternatively alternatively, can anyone recommend vinyl cutters that are affordable and don't mind one-off, small jobs...?
