Laguna Tools CNC Halloween carving

Laguna Tools SmartShop SUV CNC router and the SmartShop Laser EX CO2 laser were used to carve an intricate Halloween scene.

To celebrate Halloween Laguna Tools has posted a video demonstration of two of their CNC machines creating a Halloween scene, and they are even offering a download of the project file.

In the video, you can watch as a complete Halloween scene is created with the use of the Laguna Tools SmartShop SUV CNC router and the SmartShop Laser EX CO2 laser. Cut out silhouettes of eerie trees, creatures, and a graveyard set the tone for the backdrop as decorative jack-o-lanterns illuminate the forefront.

Follow the process as each outer border is routed by the CNC and the expressive faces on the pumpkins are laser cut by the EX. You can download the project file to do it yourself:
