Remote Control Depository
I’m Michael Tyler and since January 2011 I have been creating Vectric’s Free monthly projects. I’ve made everything from spring wreaths and mantle clocks to snow sledges and cheeseboards.
Did you know there are already over 100 projects free for Vectric customers to take advantage of and we’re working on more every month! 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. Plus all free projects since 2018 come with their own video that tells the story of the project from start to finish.
The Remote Control Depository is a great way to organize the “remote clutter” in your media room! As long as a remote is placed back in the depository when finished, you’ll never have to go hunting for your remote control(s) anymore!
There are three built-in receptacles to stand-up the remotes for stowing. Depending upon the size of your remotes, it should hold at least 4 or 5. The construction consists of five layers of material - three middle layers that form the dividers and compartment areas, and two decorative outer panels that form the sides of the container.
The pocketed recess panel design is reminiscent of a Victorian-era style, and can be finished in metallic paints and patinas if you want to create your very own cool “steampunk” version of this!
I used the Vectric VCarve software to create this project. A few features used in this project included, Curve Fit vectors, the Drawing and Node editing tools, Snapping features, Fixed Nudge, Mirror Copy, Weld Selected Vectors and the Interactive Trim (scissors tool).
which Vectric software do i need to be able to open the free project files?
Versions 10+ of the software
