Creating a Nurses Day Plaque - Hack of the Week No.251

Post by Olly »

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 Hack of the Week Model Project

Hack of the Week No.251

We hope you will enjoy this CNC project inspired by Nurses Day which celebrates the vital role of nurses and the difference they make to society.

This hack is a perfect thank you gift for your nurse friends or those who work in the medical profession, with easy to customize VCarve text and 3D models. Either reproduce this already assembled layout, or adapt the four individual models into your own personal celebratory plaque. The nursing symbol included is a staff covered in two twisting snakes, topped with angel wings which you may recognize as Caduceus who is associated with nursing and health. In Greek mythology, Hermes was the god of boundaries and one of his most important tasks was to guide the souls of the deceased into the afterlife and he was often depicted with a Caduceus in his left hand.

If this layout isn’t quite what you want to use, there are many other nursing and medical-themed models available so look through our Design and Make library or even add some from your own stock. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

4 models, 1 assembled layout, 1 project sheet. All are offered in .V3M format for VCarve Pro 8, VCarve Desktop or Aspire.

Remember, all models in this pack can be cut as individual models or combined with other models in your library.
