Bird

Welcome to the Labs sessions! I’m Beki, a Senior Application Engineer for Vectric. I love to make and I am here to provide you with a FREE monthly project that you can download and cut for yourself!

Each project comes with its own video for you to watch that tells the story of what I am making from start to finish. Including technical software footage, machining the parts in the Labs, finishing the projects and I’ll throw a few tips in based on my experience! Each project comes with the file(s) for you to download from your V&CO account, along with a PDF document that highlights some of the key important steps to help you get through your project. Share what you’ve made on the Vectric Forum.

This charming two-sided bird project was designed by Hannah at Vectric. Hannah is a Software Engineer and has been with Vectric for 2 years developing web systems. The Bird File is a two-sided model intended for two-sided machining. In the project we use the asymmetrical dowel hole method to create correct alignment in X and Y when the part is flipped over, it's the same method that is taught in the two-sided tutorials.

which Vectric software do i need to be able to open the free project files?
