As part of the free 12 days of Christmas Projects I designed and created this very simple Snowflake which makes for the perfect winter decoration for any room. The whole project consists of two toolpaths, VCarving for the text and decoration and a simple profile pass to cut the part out. If you don’t have thick material lying around why not cut two snowflakes to glue together like we did in our example for thickness!

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.
