Welcome to the 12 Projects of Christmas 2019! Beki and Todd have put their elf hats on and have been working hard in the Vectric Grotto Labs designing, machining, assembling & finishing 12 FREE projects as a special Christmas Treat from all of us here at Vectric for our loyal customers! All the projects are based around Christmas gifts or decor where we will be launching a new project each and everyday running from the 1st-12th December.
On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a Nordic Santa ornament! This cute Nordic inspired Santa character has been carefully modelled in Aspire (take a look at the video to see how I modelled it) The ornament has a flat bottom so it can stand upright and is machined using three toolpaths, a roughing toolpath (1/4”End Mill), a finishing toolpath (1/8” Tapered Ball Nose) and a Profile toolpath (1/4” End Mill). Once machined the Santa ornament requires minimal cleanup, just a sand to remove the tabs and lift off any fuzzies. I finished the part by applying a stain followed by a coat of shellac to accentuate the details!
