Santa’s Workshop Challenge

featured_storyThis Christmas season Vision Engraving & Routing Systems is looking to start the first ever Santa’s Workshop Challenge! This challenge will require Vision to make and donate toys to charity, as well as challenge someone else to do the same. Vision Engraving & Routing Systems hopes that Santa’s Workshop Challenge will go viral along with the Christmas spirit and the gift of giving.

Much like the Ice Bucket Challenge of the past, those who want to complete the challenge will need to post on social media the toy/s that were made or purchased, what charity it was given to, and who they want to do the challenge next. There is no specific charity group, the toy/s can be given to a church or dropped in a donation box. If the person is unable to make their own toy/s, as an option they can choose to purchase one from a store. For those with a CNC Router but unable to design their own toys, Vision Engraving & Routing Systems will make the design files for the wooden toys they made available for down load at

Vision will be using their VR48 CNC Router/ Engraver, which is an American made heavy-duty CNC router to make the wooden toys. The VR48 can produce accurate, repeatable, cost-effective work in considerably less time than it takes to do the same work by hand. It features a state-of-the-art Vision Series 4 Controller and graphically advanced Vision software, the VR48 is perfect for a wide variety of applications including milling, drilling, contouring, and routing.

“Its 4’ x 8’ work area makes it ideal for large or high volume applications like this wooden toy project.” said Vision’s Applications Manager Cliff Cabral.

Vision Engraving & Routing Systems knows, that there are many children who may not receive a gift this Christmas. By starting the Santa’s Workshop Challenge, Vision hopes to help motivate companies, factories, machine shops or anyone with the capabilities to help those less fortunate. Make a toy or buy one to donate and ask someone to do the same, consider yourself officially chosen to do the Santa’s Work Shop Challenge!
