MakeCode Arcade Stencilr – turn arcade images into large stencils #MakeCode @MSMakeCode @pelikhan

When you can make games like you can with MakeCode Arcade, you might just want to make an arcade cabinet to house your hardware.

But custom artwork may not be your thing? What to do? Peli de Halleux Tweets about a new tool that takes MakeCode art and creates large stencils you can use anywhere.

arcade-stencils.glitch.me takes the graphic and makes the stencils for various colors:

This tool takes a MakeCode Arcade image and turns into a set of pixelated stencils. Cut out the senticals and use them to paint your image!

Copy the source of a MakeCode Arcade image into the textbox below and click generate to turn it into DXF stencils.

Use a laser cutter, Cricut or hobby stencil to cut out the stencils.

Paint each layer with color markers or spray paints, you can also paint t-shirts.
