It took four different machines to make these

  1. A computer to render fractal art and design frame shapes.
  2. A printer to make a physical print of the art.
  3. A Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut the art shapes out precisely.
  4. A Glowforge to cut two matching pieces, a base and a frame.

Then with a little bit of glue and a big smile, my new creations are ready! This is such a fun process, a great fit for me, and really shows how accessible printmaking tech has come. Being able to use the same vector shapes in the Cameo and the Glowforge means I can go crazy with the designs, I know they’ll line up in the end.

Materials: 1 sheet photo paper, 1 sheet 1/4" cherry plywood (each)

Really nice results. Making such precise custom frames to accent the fractals is quite a good idea.
