Free Project - Gate Keeper's Key Holder

Post by AmritpalP »

This project features four padlock models finished to look like aged metal, then incorporated with a wooden plaque as a truly unique and convenient wall-mounted key hanger for you to enjoy.

The padlocks were created in Aspire using reference photos of actual antique padlocks as guides during the modeling process. The padlocks are machined separately from the plaque and are inserted as onlays into shallow pockets for precise positioning on the plaque. Thanks to the software's handy “InlayToolpath” feature, the padlock cutouts and corresponding receiving pockets are automatically adjusted to for bit diameters and yield a perfect fit.

NOTE: This free Vectric project requires Aspire 8.5 higher.

The overall dimensions of the Gate Keeper’s Key Hanger are approximately:
12 " wide x 9 " tall x 1.25 " thick
