FREE Labs Project: Cribbage Board

Postby RebeccaJ » Wed Dec 12, 2018 3:01 pm

Hello All!
I can’t believe we’re in December already! It’s been a year full of projects that I have well and truly sunken my teeth into and I have learnt an awful lot along the way!
So here’s to my last project for 2018, where I have created a project that could be a perfect last minute gift to cut for someone special this Christmas, but this is also something that can be utilised all year round, a Cribbage Board!
The 7 years I have been at Vectric I have seen many users post great looking Cribbage Boards here on the forum and many other users asking for the plans, and to my knowledge I don’t believe we have ever given away a Cribbage Board File before, so I thought it would be nice to finally give away something a lot of you ask for :)
This project is a two player cribbage board. The board is formed of two parts, the board itself and a lid (that covers a cavity for the playing cards and cribbage pegs to sit inside)! The lid is cut as a two sided assembly where there is room for personalisation on the top; I’ve VCarved Initials into the lid, but why not add some 3D relief to it instead?
To download the project simply head over to: https://release.vectric.com/cribbage-board/

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Happy Making,
Beki

Nice job Beki. I think this project also answers a lot of questions on how to use a moulding toolpath around the perimeter of a project.

Merry Christmas to you too.

John,

You can actually download the game to your smart phone. It's my favorite pastime when I don't have anything else to do (rare).

Thank you Beki. Looks very nice, like John, Highpockets, I will need to learn to play cribbage as well. :wink:

While I may or may not learn to play cribbage, I mainly wanted to say thanks to you and all of Vectric and Michael for the free files that are shared for users to try. I have tried several, downloaded them all for “someday.” Especially those requiring Aspire, once college is paid for 2 I hope to one day upgrade. :lol: in the interim, lots to learn in VCarve. These projects help in thst learning process. Merry Christmas to all of you as well.

I've been mentally taking the project apart. I find it's a good way to learn from the experts.

When I examine the profile toolpath for the outside edge of the lid top, I don't totally understand the profile. The left side of the profile definition has a vertical leg that is the same length as the depth of cut. The start point of the profile is at the bottom of this leg. If I remove this leg and set the start point to the top left of the profile, it seems to cut the same profile. Why is this leg there? It would seem to say "start this cut .26" down in the material", but it doesn't.

It often takes me a bit of trial and error to get what I want from a profile toolpath.

thanks,
Gerry

Hey Gerry,
Great Question! The leg is actually there purely from when I drew the profile out so that I could line the end point up with the start point in the Y axis (this is also how I’m used to drawing profiles for modeling processes such as the two rail sweep – so really it’s out of habit!) That said like you have pointed out if the vertical leg isn’t there it still creates the same profile so either way is fine.
The reason the tool doesn’t start .26 down is because the Z values of the ”leg” portion of the cross section are directly above the start point so it just ignores the original start point. If however the start point was say to the left (and thus creating an angled cross section then you would see the tool start down at .26” (or where the tool can fit) and then follow the rest of the cross section. I’ve included an image to demonstrate the latter to (hopefully) better demonstrate what I’m explaining.
I hope this helps, and answers your queries :D

Good to know. I guessed the first part correctly. I have been deleting that leg when I draw my profiles, but it's nice to have it for reference. It's interesting that the software is smart enough to ignore the leg if it's vertical.

thanks,
Gerry
