I’m Michael Tyler and for more than 8 years 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 more than 80 projects free for Vectric customers to take advantage of and we’re working on more every month? Each zipped project includes the files relating to the project as well as a comprehensive PDF guide that covers all the key steps help you complete your project - including tips on materials, tooling and finishes. Since 2018 free projects also come with their own video that tells the story of the project from start to finish.
This month's free project, created by Michael Tyler for Vectric, is a pair of 3D trout bookends that comes complete with two free .3dClip trout models. The project includes a secret compartment within the bookend bases that within this example contains zinc BB's for extra weight and stability.
The project is compatible with Aspire 3.5. and comes complete with ready to cut design files, detailed PDF instructions (that includes dimensions) and printable template files.
Which Vectric software do I need to be able to open the free project files?
Versions 3.5+ of the software
