I designed and created this Reindeer Head as part of the 12 Days of Christmas giveaways for Vectric. It's fairly simple and looks pretty cool! As this is a slot together project you will need to alter the slot sizes & fillet radius's according to the material thickness you plan to use. It’s good practice to always create test slots first before cutting the whole part out so that you can weigh up which overcut provides the best fit (Refer to the Video for more information on this).

I created a video for the Project here:
I have attached a zip file which includes two sets of files to make this super easy to machine. The first set
contains the vectors and toolpath information ready for you to output the toolpaths, for this option, you will need
to either own Vectric software or download the FREE trial software, where you will be able to output the gcode
for this project. You can download the Trial software here.The second set includes the vectors for you to use in your own CAD/CAM software package.
NB: If you plan to cut this project please ensure that you recalculate all toolpaths using settings that are safe and appropriate for your machine, the tools you have and the material you are using.
