For the first month of 2015 Michael Tyler has created yet another great free project that will definitely add style to any home. Drawing inspiration from early printing presses and wooden relief type, this project simulates a random grouping of old-style print blocks in a mirror frame. The varying depths of the “blocks” gives the illusion that they are separate parts. This project goes through many different toolpathing techniques, with plenty of tool changes/swaps along the way - making it a good exercise to start the year with. Compatible with Aspire 4.5 & VCarve Pro 7.5 or higher.
