Step1

Making a Pumpkin light with acrylic in XCS.


First we start by inserting a circle. Doesn't really matter how big the circle is, since you can adjust it.




Insert a square and unlock the lock, so you can adjust the size of the square to a rectangle to make the slits.

I copy and pasted the first slit, so all 4 slits are the same size.

I basically eyeballed the slits, since i'm not good at calculating the exact thickness etc.

Insert a picture of a pumpkin




Remove the background




Click on the pumpkin image and click outline and set the distance to zero.




Now you have the outline of the pumpkin and move it away from the pumkin.



Step3

Insert a square and unluck the lock and make a rectangle to fit under the pumpkin. Let the lines overlap and then click combine, then unite.

The bottom square and the pumpkin are then as one.



Insert a circle and and make it small so you can set it over the pumpkin lines. Once you have 1 circle made, set the settings for cut and copy the circle.

Then paste and move it to the spot you want.




By pasting all the circles, they will all be the same size and settings are already set.

This way you don't have to set the settings for each circle.




Move the pumpkin image a side and you will have all the circles left.



Hoover over all the circles and right click it, then click group. This way the circles stay together and in the right place.




Move the circles into the pumpkin.




Hoover over the whole image and right click it and click group. Now the pumpkin and circles can't move and will stay together.


Step4

Right click on the image again and click copy.



Copy the image 3 more times, so you have 4 pumpkin images, which will be all the same size.

As you can see in the circle, the rectangles are still on engrave, so don't forget to set the cut settings for those rectangles.

The circle for the bottom and pumpkins are now ready to cut. I used orange xTool Acrylic and removed the plastic from the front and back,



I loaded the acrylic into the machine and connected it to XCS. Since i use a honeycomb, i auto measured first and set it to laser flat.

I have grouped all the images so the size doesn't change and i can adjust it, to fit the acrylic.




I check all the settings for 100 power and 3mm speed. I did 3 passes, but would suggest doing 4 passes.




Once everything is cut, you can put it together and put a tealight in. In this case it's a battery operated light.
