PL and I created CNC Craze in 2015. I was very fortunate to have such a talented artist and designer as partner. His creativity and designs always amazed me. He also taught me many techniques which help me through the learning curve of creating my own patterns and designs. If you need a custom design, he’s the “Go To” guy you need to talk to.
— Suzanne Ramsay, CNC Craze
We have worked with Pierre-Luc for a number of years on numerous CNC, woodworking and design projects. Each and every time Pierre goes above and beyond what is expected from him, delivering results that we can rely on. His artistic skill combined with his keen sense of the CNC and wood industry allows us to present a general idea to Pierre and he will fine tune the idea into a professional project.

I stand behind all my custom CAD patterns and make sure each design delivered is a quality working model that would pass my own machine carving test.  If the CAD pattern does not meet your expectations let us know and we'll ensure that you end up with a quality file that does.  Our end goal is your satisfaction with a pattern we're proud to put our name on.  The same applies to all our finished carved art. Each are individually designed, carved and uniquely finished by hand with the mediums to offer you a unique piece of art.



About me.

MY NAME IS Pierre-Luc Arseneau

Equipped with a Graphic Design diploma from 2001, and over a decade of custom CAD/CAM experience in the retail industry as a digital craftsman, I decided to pursue my passion as a freelance graphic artist and maker. I have been offering custom digital files (relief CAD patterns) to the global CNC carving communities as PLA3D since 2012. It has been a full time career to help CNC carvers across the world with their creative projects while exploring the artistic applications of CNC manufacturing with my own art. As a trained product maker and professional artist, I have a natural inclination to merge the CNC woodworking technology with art. The results are a one of a kind product & service that I continue to explore day to day.
