In the labs with Todd & Peter Parfitt - FREE Shoehorn Project

Post by Stephanie Downing »

Peter Parfitt, from The New Brit Workshop, recently guest appeared with Todd in our LIVE YouTube event. Peter shared some practical ideas he uses his CNC for in The New Brit Workshop.

Peter looks at his CNC as another tool in the shop allowing himself to utilize its accuracy to create all sorts of jigs and creating starting points for projects that he finishes using traditional woodworking techniques. Peter has been very generous and has included some of his VCarve and Aspire files he used for the ideas he shares so you can try them yourself or be inspired to create some of your own. These additional free files will be included in the shoehorn project download pack.

Peter also tossed us a challenge... can Vectric make a shoehorn on our CNC within 2 hours? That's the time it takes him to create a CNC/Woodworking version... can Todd do it? Have a watch of the video to see if he can pull it off. Then give it a try on your own using the free shoehorn files we have included with this event. Try it Peter’s way or if you have Aspire you can cut the full shoehorn on your CNC!

For this particular project or something else? Although VCarve can cut the model it doesn't have the capability to create it which is the aim of this project as far as I can see.

The free projects are essentially marketing tools that Vectric use to showcase the capabilities of the software and there are many that work in VCarve and Cut2D as well.

They do Support the V-Carve Pro Version in a sense. There is a .CRV file with all the Vectors for the shoehorn.

I do not have Aspire either but I have been able to use the supplied vectors to create similar model in another 3D modeling program. But by the same token with a bit of time and creativity you probably could use some of the tools (moulding Toolpat, etc...) in V-Carve Pro to create a similar shoehorn.

Just my thoughts/opinions!!!
