20 Awesome Ideas For Your Jack-O-Lantern


Tonight is my personal favorite night of the Halloween season: the night I carve the pumpkins! Ever since I was a little kid, I couldn’t wait for the night I got to carve pumpkins with my family. Picking out your perfect pumpkin, deciding upon your perfect design, and then drawing it on before you start carving in is just such great fun. Not to mention all the fun of pulling out the guts! Then baking pumpkin seeds, (yum!) and finally, the delightful satisfaction of seeing it perfectly candlelit under a night sky. If you’re still looking for ideas for your perfect carving, here’s a collection of some awesome jack-o’-lanterns to inspire you!

    There are plenty I could think of… Are there any pumpkin carving attachments for 3D printers?

    1. Henry Feldman says:

      With a large enough milling machine you could do this. 3D printing would deposit material on the pumpkin. The trick would be you’d have to 3D scan the pumpkin and adjust the milling parameters for the actual shape of the pumpkin. But it would be awesome…
