🍬 Get ready to sweeten up your CNC skills with this delightful wooden candy dispenser project! In part one of this three-part series, we'll guide you through the process of designing a charming, functional dispenser based on a reference image. We'll start by importing the image into Vectric software and scaling it to size using a clever trick. Then, we'll dive into drawing the basic shapes, such as the candy container, dispensing mechanism, and chute, using a variety of tools and techniques. Along the way, we'll share tips for keeping your design organized, working with symmetrical objects, and adding subtle details like rounded corners and chamfers. We'll also explore how to create custom knobs using the copy along vectors tool and the fillet tool for a professional finish. By the end of this lesson, you'll have a solid foundation for your candy dispenser design, ready to be refined and prepared for machining in part two. So, grab your favorite treats, fire up your Vectric software, and let's create a sweet little project together!
