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!
Check out my latest Vectric free project - the egg shaker instrument. In a previous free project I made some wooden shot glasses and wanted to take this idea further with something musical. I decided a fun and Easter themed project would be to make the egg shaker.
In the video I go through some improved ways of lining up the two parts and gluing the two sides of the egg together.
Whether you want to make this project as I have designed it or make a few tweaks to make it your own, we would love to see how your egg shaker turns out, so please share what you've made on our social channels by tagging @Vectric. You could even change the shape of the shaker!
which Vectric software do i need to be able to open the free project files?
Versions 10+ of the software
