Wow, what incredible work! Welcome to the community, I think you will like it here.

The object looks like a snowflake-butterfly creature. Is ‘frabjous’ the technical name? How big are these guys?

Thanks! Frabjous is the name that the original designer, George Hart, gave to this shape. I drew my own svg after looking at his work. Mine is about 6 in diameter. These acrylic sheets are pretty

Nice job putting your personal touch on that design, and in acrylic. I like the color/pattern in the first one

The rose gold one is my favorite too! When I had only Aura, I couldn’t play with too many colors of acrylic. Now with pro it gets so much more exciting (and faster)

Welcome to the forum.

It is obvious that the Aura and Pro are tools in the right hands. Your work is wonderful…

Do you have the picture of the wooden one? I thought those connectors looked really cool. :slight_smile:

This one is not made with a Pro but with Epilog Fusion Pro 36, which my local library owns. I was at the beginning of learning about laser cutters and how to design, draw, how material works etc. It took much longer than needed to finish

Wow! Both acrylic and wood are very impressive! I like how the wood makes the design and connections easier to see.

I really like all of the acrylic designs. The soft colors complement each other nicely.

The glitter acrylic one is fabulous! I want to decorate my Yule tree with these!

Question, on the wood one - do these holes serve a purpose or are they solely decorative? I don’t see them on the acrylic…but it’s a lot harder to see the acrylic so I’m asking :slight_smile:

Thank you for asking; that’s a great question. I did this because this was one of my first projects, for which I was relying on glue, and I didn’t know how to make the shape stay while the glue dried. These holes are for twist ties to hold the piece together temporarily. With acrylic I didn’t use any glue so no holes were needed

That blue one! If I squint just right, I imagine I can see multiple galaxies colliding.

Props to your lighting and photography skills. It’s hard to get such stunning shots of clear/translucent shiny things.
