ATM, Not sure if were doing a L-Shape desk yet.  The transparent blue in image 1 & 3 would be vented  transparent acrylic to protect case/system. Its a small case, but I really like it, and we have a cat and I dont want the glass panel getting broke. Image 2 will also be acrylic but will be used for a custom LED lighting for indirect lighting. I hate above/ceiling direct lighting... Image 3, would be a two layer acrylic with lighting on the inner layer acrylic . So, if ur up to it Kirk?
 
So, Sketchup Pro(non-cloud) is $300_annually, no more free, and I hate using cloud based apps...

Sketchup for desktop and cloud is $300/year from what I see. I would go for the dual layer acrylic for inner layer edge light effect. If the desk is 24" x 48" you can buy the acrylic in that size without having to cut anything.

Hey buddy! Thanks for linking me to your build...see...great minds think alike! You wanted to build a desk and so did I!
 
The easiest and most low cost was for me was to design the desk at 24 inches deep by a maximum of what ever depth or length you want to make it. If using MDF I just purchase a 4 x 8 foot board at home depot and have them cut it in half to make two 2 x 8 sections or cut it again to make 2 x 4 sections. If using acrylic the largest it ships in is 2 x 4 foot (without costing an arm and a leg) and i just use that without using the laser to cut anything...it already comes in the size you need! So say you purchase two 2x4 pieces for the right and left ends, then a 2 x 2 piece for the middle of an L-Shaped desk your all set! No cutting needed! Just build the frame and attach the panels with t-slot screws!
 
Here are some sketchup designs you may like. Let me know if you want me to e-mail the skp. files to you to fiddle around with. Also, for the frame, use 8020 extrusions in the 2525 size. You can find them here on Ebay or Amazon
 
Granted you don't need the case designed into the desk, but if your just looking to build a desk just remove the case from the drawing. The designs are 3/8" clear acrylic with either a 1/8" or 1/4" top. This way you can mount RGB lighting on the back side of the desk and edges will glow!
 
 
 



It was very kind of you to put that kind of work in to help knightsilver. Have a BR for your efforts.
