Hi All,

I just found this website that I think you might find useful.
http://www.ponoko.com/

You can design something in an EPS programs like Illustrator or Corel Draw. Upload it to their server, pick a material and they will laser cut it out and send it to you. One of the materials is Clear TRANSPARENT Acrylic. I was thinking this would be great for the parts of the central TARDIS column and its interior parts.Not to mention other parts.

Also when you upload a pattern its then available for others to order.

That looks pretty cool :)

In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

I've been contemplating getting something produced by these guys but worried their sizing wouldn't be suitable for anything more than a handhelp prop

Anyone else had any luck?
