Festive Assembly

Each year we release a selection of festive free projects to give you access to some CNC gift and decoration ideas ready for Christmas.

After what has been an incredibly difficult two years for many households, we would like to extend the sentiment of our usual festive projects to those in need of some extra kindness this Christmas. With that in mind, the Vectric elves have been busy in the workshop and we have launched the Vectric Christmas Toy Shop.

This year we have created six free project files, all of which are all compatible with our free trial software meaning they can be machined by anyone with a CNC machine around the world. All of the projects will be gender-neutral toys aimed at a variety of ages.

Join us to spread some kindness this Christmas and gift a unique toy you've made to someone who needs it most. Tag us on our social channels, use the #kindnessthischristmas or post your project on the Vectric forum so we can see how yours turned out.

Stay safe & Merry Christmas

From Beki, Todd, and Everyone at Vectric

I love a crafting session at Christmas and kids’ love it too! So I thought I’d create some slot-together assemblies that you can machine and have the kid’s decorate them! Included in the design is a happy snowman and a star topped Christmas tree, I’ve also drawn up a sleigh and have included a vcarved element using the  “#kindnessthischristmas” message, but you can put any message in there, or leave it plain and simple!

All you need to do in the file is alter the slot widths/heights to match the material thickness that you are using, then weld the parts that join the sleigh and fillet all the slots according to your material thickness.

I hope this project inspires you to share some #kindnessthischristmas and gift these Festive Assemblies to a little one near you!  

Merry Christmas & Happy Making!
