All our creations are handmade and customized to whatever specifications you are looking for.

Services

Laser Etching

FoxAlien 5w; 20w; 40w

We use a modified FoxAlien 20w or 40w blue diode laser to etch, burn, and/or cut out our creations. Our designs are completed in Adobe Photoshop and/or LightBurn prior to executing the cuts.

CNC

FoxAlien 300w Masuter

We use the FoxAlien Masuter with 300w Spindle to create many of our wooden creations. Our designs are completed in Adobe Photoshop and/or Carveco CNC tool prior to executing the cuts.

Resin Minatures

ANYCUBIC Mono Photon X

All our resin models are made using our Mono Photon X (4k) resin printers.

3D Filament Printing

Creative Ender 3

All our filament models are made using the Creative Ender 3 filament printer.

Prototyping
If you are looking to print prototypes of your own STL files, we are able to print and cure most resin and pla built models.
 
               

 

We primarily use FoxAlien Laser and CNC machines when we are engraving or cutting our creations.
Our first and last laser/cnc machine has always been a FoxAlien device. Since then we have tried other brands but we always have gone back to FoxAlien. We have 3 laser engravers from a 5w to handle the simple small jobs to a 20w to handle some of those in the middle, leather and wood jobs to the heavy hitter, the 40w to handle the tough glass and steel engraving jobs. We also have the laser rotary roller to engrave glass cups, mugs, or anything that would need to spin.

All resin and filament prints are made with our machines by Anycubic.
There is no in-between and although we have tried other brands, I absolutely love our Anycubic Mono machines. We currently have two machines which run anywhere from 1 hour to 24 hours a day.

Although everyone may have personal preferences, some machines may take extra editing and configuring by the user, and some machines require a lot more patience than others; if I were to recommend any machine for a beginner to the more advanced, I would recommend FoxAlien and Anycubic.
