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 month’s project is a charming wooden bow tie! Modelled in Aspire and cut on the CNC, this makes for the quirky dresser who would rather swap their silk bow ties for something more unusual using our favourite material, WOOD!
In the video I show you how to model the Bow Tie in Aspire along with the toolpath setup, the file itself is fairly quick to cut and I show you how you can simply glue the Bow Tie clasp to the back side of the Bow Tie to provide it with some functionality.
which Vectric software do i need to be able to open the free project files?
