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 special one, working with Vectric’s Marketing Manager Stephanie, we have created a beautiful Garden Planter Barrow for you to cut for yourself. Stephanie has spent all year planning for her wedding day, and she asked me if I could help her out with something for her special day! She told me she would like to create a wheelbarrow (a wheel barrow for your wedding day, Really?!) Oh no, not just any wheel barrow, a BEER Barrow! So we both worked together to create a garden planter barrow to trial out the real thing. We wanted to make the wheelbarrow fit in on the big day, so we created a slot together assembly and for the decorative panels we looked at using the vector texture tool and the texture tool path to create a faux wood grain effect and added in text for personalisation too!
