The 12 Projects of Christmas 2020 - Snowman

Post by RebeccaJ »

On the fifth day of Christmas Vectric made for me… A Two Sided Snowman!
Last year I created the Nordic Santa model (https://www.vectric.com/vectric-communi ... ordicSanta) which I loved and so this year I thought I’d create a snowman buddy for Santa!

You can watch the video here:



This is a two sided project that I modelled up in Aspire, using the create shape tool, the two rail sweep and a tiny bit of sculpting to finish! For more information on how to use these tools why not take a look at these videos:

Create Shape Guide (https://www.vectric.com/support/tutoria ... odeling105)

Two Rail Sweep Guide (https://www.vectric.com/support/tutoria ... D_Modeling)

The project is aligned using the dowel method to ensure that when the top side is flipped over everything lines up perfectly in X &Y.
If you are new to two sided machining I recommend you take a look at the tutorials we have available that cover this topic in much more detail, you can access those here:

Two Sided Marlin (https://www.vectric.com/support/tutoria ... _Machining)

Chess Piece https://www.vectric.com/support/tutoria ... _Machining

The project is fairly quick to machine and I finished it using a simple Teak Oil to bring out the grain which looked beautiful!

I hope you enjoy this project and if you fancy having a go for yourself then you can download the files from here:

Happy Making!

Thanks, Steve. It took a little digging but I found it shortly after posting the question.
