Welcome to the Labs sessions!
Here at Vectric we all love to make stuff, so we thought we would share our inspiration, designs and the CNC process with our community by sharing the projects we make.
Each project comes with its own video for you to watch that tells the story of what we’re making from start to finish. Including technical software footage, machining the parts in the Labs, finishing the projects and we’ll even throw a few tips in based on our experiences.
Each 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.
Go ahead and try out one of the projects out for yourself and share what you have made on the Vectric Forum!
My latest project the 'mini guitar' is an easy and cheap way to make your very own guitar that you can take with you anywhere. I have made this project so that all of the materials and techniques are readily available from your local stores or online.
This project can be made using the free files and finished within half a day if you have all the materials you need and a CNC ready to go. Just think you could have a mini guitar made by yourself by tomorrow!
In the video available with the free files I go through some of the techniques I use personally when I make custom guitars for customers of all shapes and sizes. If you are interested in guitars or building an instrument this project is a good place to start.
Whether you want to make this project as I have designed it or make a few tweaks to make it your own, please share your version by tagging @Vectric.
which Vectric software do i need to be able to open the free project files?
Versions 10+ of the software
