Wall Light

Welcome to the Labs sessions! I’m Beki, a Senior Application Engineer for Vectric. I love to make and I am here to provide you with a FREE monthly project that you can download and cut for yourself!

Each project comes with its own video for you to watch that tells the story of what I am making from start to finish. Including technical software footage, machining the parts in the Labs, finishing the projects and I’ll throw a few tips in based on my experience! This project is available for use in our free trial software, so even if you’re not a current Vectric customer you can download the files and cut them on your CNC. This project comes with a PDF document that highlights some of the key important steps to help you get through your project. Share what you’ve made on the Vectric Forum. Download our FREE TRIAL software here.

This month is all about one of my favourite things… lights! This light is simplistic, minimal and fun and would look good just about anywhere!

The Circle Light file contains the vectors and toolpaths needed to cut the part as described in the video – please refer to the video before cutting this yourself. When cutting your own version of this design ensure that you measure up the battery pack you are using along with the wire and the LED strip to ensure that the final cut-out part will cater for your electronics.

For accurate fit, I would recommend that you run a test piece for the battery pack and the wire track to ensure that you have a good fit (making edits where necessary – ie. Overcutting by using a negative allowances and length adjustments to the wire track) Once you have cut all the parts, it’s time to assemble the parts.

which Vectric software do i need to be able to open the free project files?

This project is available to everyone, simply download the latest version of our FREE Trial software to make this project.

IMPORTANT: Before outputting any toolpaths you should carefully check all part sizes and the material setup to make sure they are appropriate for your actual setup. You should also check and re-calculate all toolpaths with safe and appropriate settings for your material, CNC machine and tooling.

Terms of Use: The projects and artwork are provided on the understanding that they will only be used with Vectric software programs. You may use the designs to carve parts for sale but the Files and/or Vectors, Components or Toolpaths within them (or any derivatives) may not be converted to other formats, sold to, or shared with anyone else.
