Vectric Newsletter | Issue 133

Beki's Top Tip
Did you know that Aspire comes with over 1,200 3D relief models that are ready to use right away! Some of the models have a “-X” suffix on the file name which indicates that it contains a group of individual components that make up the model, which can be really useful to see how individual pieces are used to make a more complex finished part.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Vectric
Our offices will be closed from 24th December and re-opening 4th January 2021

MAKING the Bookpile Box with Michael Tyler

Michael's latest project is an interesting and attractive box made to resemble a pile of old, stacked books. The lid resembles a slightly oversized book made to overhang the "books" that are stacked underneath to provide a convenient "lip" when lifting the lid.

The lid of the book box was intentionally left "plain". However, this does lend itself to customization on your part, if you would like to create a nice design on the lid!

We hope you enjoy this project, have fun, keep making, and most importantly, stay safe!

Compatible with Aspire and VCarve Pro V10.5+

CASE STUDY | Gert Burkhardt Plant Stand

Gert having moved earlier this year had a corner to fill which he wanted to decorate with some plants. After looking he could not find any plant stands he liked, so decided to design and build his own.

We caught up with Gert to ask him some questions about how he got on. To find out more and read the case study just click the button below.
