Hack of the Week No.86

This Hack of the Week would make a perfect gift for a friend or family member that is an EMT or Paramedic.  Change up the V-Carving to make it into a years of service award or a simple "Thank You" to an everyday hero that gave a helping hand by volunteering their time in your community. 

This "EMT/Paramedic" badge/sign layout was created using models from these CNC projects:

The fonts we used to simulate the v-carving on this layout are called: Century 725, Book Antiqua

Tip: Star of Life Symbol for V-Carving was created by selecting the Star of Life model and then using the "Create vector boundary from selected component" tool.

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

A Little Something Extra

We have included a screen grab to help you if you would like to recreate this layout or something close.  This layout and component tree would be the same in VCarve Pro V8, VCarve Desktop and Aspire V8.

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!
