Tufted Heart Pen Holder

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.

This month's project features a pretty “tufted heart” carving made into a nice desktop pen holder. This makes a nice Valentine, Wedding, or Anniversary gift or for any other occasion when you want to show someone some Love!

I used the Aspire software to create all the individual models. They were ultimately combined together to yield the final tufted heart composite model. As a bonus, all the original individual models are included in the Aspire project file. This could prove helpful for anyone wanting to observe how the models were layered, merged, and combined (as well as being able to use the individual models for other projects).

A few features used while designing this project included the Create Shape tools, Rail Sweep, Sculpting, Array Copy, Drawing and Node editing tools, Snapping features, and the Interactive Trim.

which Vectric software do i need to be able to open the free project files?

Versions 10.5+ of the software
