As Former CEO of a large global packaging company with 1200 employees I stopped 5 years ago on age 58 to concentrate on fun things in live.
I did buy a CNC machine for my hobby “exact modeling of Dutch parts of railways in the 1950-1960 period”
To be able to copy many things I work a lot in the software Adobe Illustrator and Autodesk Fusion 360 and in that way design (copy the reality from pictures) on my Apple iMac.
After design I use my Stepcraft CNC machine with your Endurance 8 Watt laser to engrave and cut in 0.6 mm to 3 mm MDF and other plate materials.
After designing and cutting (with the laser) I do airbrush the results to have the outlook of the real buildings as they where seen on photo.
