Episode 166 – I’m making 5 bellows

Episode 166 – I’m making 5 bellows

At  the cottage I don’t have any bellows but I have an ugly one at home. So I’ve decided to make a new one for our wood stove at home and bring the old one at the cottage. Along the way, I ended up making 5 of them.

And this was the ideal project to use Vectric’s Aspire. It’s a CAD program for use with a CNC machine. The company gave me a free trial. If you want more information about Aspire go to the Vectric website.

In my last episode, I made this nice walnut frame with my logo in 3D.

In this episode, I’m going to show you how I made this actual 3D logo.

While doing this video I used several programs. And here’s where you can find those programs:
Photoshop https://www.adobe.com/
Dmap2gcode http://www.scorchworks.com/
CAMotics http://camotics.org/
