This is a follow up to the Marvel Calendar I designed two years ago. The experience was a fun one for sure and was primarily made to inspire people in the maker community. It was a great success, being downloaded over 270,000 in 2 years!
If you like it, please follow me on Instagram to see my recent work!
There are 4 different file types available for download: AI, DXF, EPS and SVG

That’s pretty awesome! Nice work!
Thank you, it was definitely a lot of fun to make!
I loved the Marvel Calendar, as did all of my friends. You’re very talented, and I like your work–it’s and added bonus that you enjoyed the process. I’ve followed on Instagram, so it will give me some interesting things on my feed!
Now, who wants to go join paths and fill them properly so we can engrave it?
That is awesome work and it’s so generous of you to share the art!
Pretty incredible. Thank you!
The lines are already joined. I ran the SVG file on my GF and it came out great, considering I did it at 4" versus the 24" I designed it at. If it comes out reversed, deselect the outside circle and use that as a cut path.
Hmm interesting. When I try to fill it, it fills solid. I thought that was ironclad in terms of what governs engraves? (This is inkscape)
In any case it prevents png export if you wanted to engrave it as a bitmap.
Interesting, I imported the SVG file into the GF apps and it came out just as shown above.
Unfortunately the SVG directly from the zip file loads as a single object in the GF UI, and it does engrave in reverse (I added and cut from a different circle after the engrave completed.)
Gotcha, I must have put another circle around everything when I ran it on the GF.
Wow, your work is amazing! Thanks for your generous share!
Anyone care to speculate why the same file appears to engrave in reverse, and how to fix it?
That is spectacular. Love it!
i’m not sure what’s happening, but this is what i’m seeing in illustrator, too. it’s all stroke/no fill.
This is what i see in Illustrator (opening AI or SVG)
And yet, this was how it engraved (cheap piece of scrap wood at 4”, no masking and not cleaned). It has me a little confused.
Which file did you load into the UI? I used the SVG, unaltered. Did you have more than one object in the UI?
I guess I should dl the AI file and see if it’s different…
Well, so much for that, you can’t load AI directly into the GF workspace.
So assuming you also used the SVG, what engrave settings did you use? I just went with med draftboard default engrave. which is “sd graphic”
I uploaded the SVG. I Opened the svg and AI in illustrator to see what they looked like
The engrave was basswood SD graphic. I did recollection the outside cut line first so I could assign that to cut and engrave the rest.
edit: i can’t explain why it engraves like that, since there are no fills in the SVG.
