Hack of the Week No.77

Veterans Day, Remembrance Day or November 11th is a day to take the time to remember the men and women that have served or are serving our countries protecting our freedoms and the freedoms of others.  On November the 11th please take the time to remember or thank a member of your Armed Forces for what that have given up so that we can enjoy all that we somethings take for granted. 

This "May We Never Forget" memorial plaque was created using models from these CNC projects and VA3D models:

The fonts we used to simulate the v-carving on this layout are called: Constantia

Note - This hack was assembled in Aspire V8 for presentation purposes.  It could have been done in VCarve Pro V8 or VCarve Desktop.

VectorArt3D is a great source of single models to hack into your layouts and it's also a Vectric Company!


Models can be purchased from VectorArt3D as Vectric .V3Ms and work perfectly in VCarve Desktop, VCarve Pro V8 and Aspire.

Tombstone from the Halloween No.2 CNC Project.



Don Harding sent in this photo of a finished Veterans memorial he created in corian.  He laminated up some corian sheets using a special jig he made, machined the plaque and then blacken the letters. 

Thanks Don for sharing.

Why not hack together your own layout mixing and matching models from other projects or from your own library!  For some great inspiration check out our  hacks page!

Be safe and let the chips fly!
