This is my 3rd year doing my anual pumpkin carving with my Glowforge. This year I did Black Panther. The technique is pretty simple I cut off the face of the pumpkin so it would fit then did a photo engrave (if you try this make sure to invert the colors of the picture). I did a full build video on youtube if you’d like more info https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZ6FprU3Cgk ! IMG_5680|375x500
That is so great!
Great result, Thanks for sharing your work! Did you have to thin the pumkin wall to get that translucence?
Edit; NM, I watched the video.
That is eerily amazing!
I used your pumpkin advice last year! Hmmmm, I’ve got a week left, maybe I’ll do it again just for my porch
On a different material subject, I ran across this video on your feed using the removal of black spray paint from aluminum to get a beautiful photo finish on aluminum…this is ab fab!
Yet another thing I want to try!
Thank you! send me pictures when you do. I like to engrave random things just to see what will happen more often than not its worked pretty well.
Wow, the variation in shading is amazing!
Great work! Great homage to Black Panther. He was a great actor.
Super amazing! Thanks for the video. My spouse is greatly resistant to the potential smells coming from cutting pumpkins on the GF and won’t let me try it! So thanks for letting me live vicariously.
The smell was very minimal cutting acrylic is 10x worse.
