Heart Shaped Box

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 simple heart shaped box, a perfect gift with Valentines just around the corner! The box is formed of two parts, a lid and a base. The lid has a funky texture pattern that has been created simply with a profile toolpath and a large VBit. The base of the box consists of a simple pocket toolpath where I have engraved some text inside of the box! The box is a two sided project, allowing for extra engraving on the bottom of the base, as well as the functionality of a pocket pass on the underside of the lid to allow for the lid to slot into the base to close the whole part up.

Which Vectric software do I need to be able to open the free project files?

Versions 9.5+ of the software
