Valentines Day Project
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.
Welcome to a new section of the website where Michael Tyler will be presenting a series of fully documented project tutorials using Vectric's software to produce fun and useful products.
With Valentine's day nearly upon us, now is the time to make up for all those hours spent mumbling about feedrates and tool geometry by making something special for your long-suffering partners and loved-ones.
This project takes you through all the steps needed to make a beautiful Valentine gift using Aspire 3. It covers the entire process, from design to finished piece, and should be appropriate for any skill level. There are lots of useful tips and tricks along the way that we're sure you will be able to apply to other projects in the future.
The available download (zip file) contains:
A seven page printable PDF document detailing the process, step-by-step.
The Aspire 3 model you will need.
A high-quality image of the finished piece.
(To 'unzip' your file once downloaded, you will need to right-click it in Windows Explorer and select Extract All)
