STEP BY STEP guide to creating your own Desk Lamp

Inspiration for a project idea can be sparked by something you see in a store, online or even while just out for a walk. For Todd this idea was planted in his head while out for a morning run but was shelved because of Covid-19 and a technical issue that he could not overcome at the time.

His dilemma was how to get the arm to bend and tighten in place without the use of metal bolts and nuts. With the release of V10.5 there seemed to be a possible solution if only he could get his head wrapped around the new tread milling toolpath strategy.

The road to his finished project had a few bumps, but if you would like to hear Todd's tips and tricks for making this desk lamp using the new thread milling feature watch his ‘how to’ video or to create your own download the free project files below.

Michael Tyler's Rack, Rack - MOOSE | Free Project

This fun project was inspired by many visits to our family camp located in northern Maine. We’ve seen moose there in the wild before, but on our most recent trip we didn’t spot any!

Dinosaur Crossing | Design&Make

What child would not love a dinosaur crossing sign for their bedroom door? For a bit of fun, place one on a woodland path or customize it to your liking for a birthday surprise.

This hack is very easy to customize with the assembly files you can just add the text you want. You could also resize or make something a bit different to the current layout we have made as all the individual models are included.

Patrick Coady JD Bottle | Case Study

My son's 25th Birthday was coming up and I had been wanting to make him something special. It had been a number of years since I gifted him something I made. I was working on a smaller version of the JD bottle in the software and thought what a neat gift a full-size one would be, especially if it was functional as well.
