New FREE Project - Trinket Tray

Post by Olly »

In this month’s “In the Labs” project, Beki shows us how to design and make a beautifully styled trinket tray for jewelry such as earrings, necklaces, and delicates you don’t want to get in a tangle. Alternatively, why not think outside the box and upscale the model to make a cufflink store, fruit bowl, or even a snack serving dish as a centerpiece for your dining table. An ideal beginner’s guide to 2-sided machining, this project takes you through the step-by-step process of modeling a two sided part in Aspire. Beki will show you how you can align your part in X & Y for both sides for accurate alignment when flipping the material over to machine the bottom side. This functionality allows you to cut one side of the bowl then flip to reposition and machine the underside another day – perfect if you run out of time or want to turn your machine off overnight and return to it another time without losing technical information on the layup.

For the more advanced user, this project provides an opportunity at a fun, quick and easy project to make as a gift, a practical addition to your dressing table or a fully customizable product to sell on your online store.

The project comes with the file(s) for you to download, along with a PDF document that highlights some of the key important steps to help you get through your project. For those of you yet to try our software packages, why not download our free trial software and the files and give it a go!

Happy Making!
