Engraved Silhouettes by Jigg007 Engraved Silhouettes by Jigg007
A present for a friend - Two individual pieces of plexiglass engraved with separate elements and their own LED lighting. Which gives each character their color. The base is made out of solid wood and painted to a black finish. Green and Purple 3mm leds were used and the unit is powered from USB 5V+

MLP Belongs to hasbro,
Original artwork belongs to :iconcuttycommando: [link] :thumb318237879:

in which then i painstakingly spline'dd out in autocad (and added sweet crowns): [link] :thumb348430124:

And here is a bonus view of it in bright room light: [link]

Start to finish this took more time than I'd like to admit, but mostly atributed to errors with old hardware.

This is very impressive :D I especially love how you split the light colors, between Chrissy and Cadance :D

Nice work !
I also converted a drawing in machine code to drive a pen plotter : [link]
I used inkscape, it can vectorize a picture automatically.

Yeah I've done automation processes like that. But you run into the problem where you get a lot of redundant geometry. Like when your plotter makes the tail and hair it adds a bunch of dots all over which you really cant make out given the size of the material/marker. More of a moot point, but it really doesn't "optimize" either. Because you're sometimes cutting the same line twice due to a auto-vector process you're just wasting time.

But still cool, we need more industrial bronies!

This is definitely one of the classiest and most unique bits of fanart I've seen.
