Welcome to the Labs sessions!
Here at Vectric we all love to make stuff, so we thought we would share our inspiration, designs and the CNC process with our community by sharing the projects we make.
Each project comes with its own video for you to watch that tells the story of what we’re making from start to finish. Including technical software footage, machining the parts in the Labs, finishing the projects and we’ll even throw a few tips in based on our experiences.
Each project comes with the file(s) for you to download, along with a PDF document that highlights some of the key important steps to help you get through your project.
Go ahead and try out one of the projects out for yourself and share what you have made on the Vectric Forum!
Let's make a desk lamp! Using the included files and the video tutorial you will be able to create your very own wooden desk lamp. In the video, Todd will share with you the process he used to create his desk lamp. Focusing on the design process and the use of thread milling to create nuts and bolts to fit the armature together. If you have not yet explored thread milling in your Vectric software this might just tip you over the edge. The desk lamp is a very practical use of the feature and creates a project that is not only functional but easily customizable and would make a great gift!
The free project files are available from your V&Co account for free so you can see exactly what we have done. Don't forget if you make your own, be sure to post it where we can see it on our social channels.
