These paper monsters are the perfect desktop accessory for celebrating the Halloween season at home, school or even the office! Using Epilog's new eView Camera Module allows for laser die cuts around preprinted graphics with unprecedented accuracy.
Follow these easy steps to create a trio of paper monsters of your own. Not familiar with the eView Camera Module? Check out this video demo!
We used a 75-watt Fusion M2 with the following Color Map settings:
Red: Speed: 60% // Power: 60% // Freq: 500
Blue: Speed: 100% // Power: 50% // Freq: 3
Green: Speed: 50% // Power: 50% // Freq: 500
Click the "Download Now" button above. This will open a zipped folder that includes both the artwork files and the outline cutting files. Locate the artwork PDFs and print them on sturdy cardstock.
Adjust the print settings and send the job to Epilog's Job Manager. Make sure Power Comp is turned off.
Apply rubber cement to the designated areas on the printed graphic then place the paper in the system.
Register the artwork using the eView tab in the Job Manager. The overhead access door cameras provide a live preview while the camera on the lens assembly automatically locates registration marks. Click here to see a video of the eView in action!
Once the registration is complete, press go and watch as the laser quickly and accurately die cuts the graphic.
Apply a small amount of rubber cement to the inside edges of the face to bond with the tabs. Next apply a small amount to the back side of the arms and wings and fold them together. Finally, insert the appendages into the designated slots to complete your monster!

Don't have an eView? No problem. Click the "download file" button at the top of the page. After the folder has downloaded, find the file names marked with "X". Using the Red Dot Pointer, locate the small reference point in the center of the page and set that has your home position. Choose Center-Center engraving and, with the lid open and Red Dot Pointer on, run the vector job to ensure your monsters cut exactly where they should.
