A new Gallery project on the DeskProto website shows how to CNC machine a heart, in a video made by a DeskProto user. The video shows the heart machined in walnut wood, with a truly attractive result.
"When we saw this video we decided to share this with all DeskProto users.” says Lex Lennings, DeskProto sales manager. "By making the STL file available for download any owner of a hobby CNC machine can now machine a unique heart.”
The gift can be made unique by engraving the name of your beloved one (or any other text) on the heart, which can be done by projecting a 2D text on the curved surface below. It is even possible to convert a picture to a relief and project that on the heart.
The video can be seen and the Valentine heart STL file can be downloaded at www.deskproto.com
There you can also find a free trial version of DeskProto, which is fully functional for 30 days. So it is possible to complete the project without even buying DeskProto.
