The BIG Five

This post is for all the Design and Make enthusiasts out there!

Just a quick post to keep you up to date on what is new over at


Introducing our latest model project - The Big Five -

This project features animal busts of the African Big Five: Elephant, Rhinoceros, Cape Buffalo, Lion, and Leopard.

This would not be a project unless a few other models were added too. Extra models include the textured Africa map, using real topographical data simulating the continent's landscape, a Safari scene that can be used as a backdrop for the African themed frame, or if you prefer, design your own using the 2 borders to create a personalized frame.

Let's not forget the rock cluster, this can help you fill in areas or use it to create a textured background for the frame.

D&M model projects usually contain 1 prebuilt layout, however, for this special project, 2 Assembled Layouts are included. These layouts feature all the Big Five, either arranged on the map of Africa or on the Safari scene with an area for your customized VCarving text too.

11 models, 2 assembled layout and 1 Project Sheet. All offered in .V3M format for VCarve Pro 8, VCarve Desktop or Aspire.

All the models can be machined separately, combined to make a much more complicated part or hacked together with other project models or some from your own library.
