Halloween Jack-O'-Lantern Candy Dish

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!

Happy Making!

2020’s Halloween may be a lot different than those in the past but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a fun time.  How about making a Jack-O’-Lantern inspired candy dish from the free dish components you get with your VCarve and Aspire software.  It’s no trick that we will show you how to create a pumpkin model and then carve out the signature eyes and mouth that give a Jack-O’-Lantern its personality! Not only that but we will have a look at creating the underside of the bowl with the molding toolpath strategy! Now that sounds like a treat doesn’t it?

The free project files will be 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.

We hope you enjoy this Halloween project, have fun, keep making, and most importantly, be safe!
