Here you can find many of my original vector drawings of my past projects. Most are in Adobe Illustrator format, versions 10 – CS5.

Terms of Use:

  1. There is NO EMAIL SUPPORT for any of these files. Please search this site to read the original articles if you have any questions, join our forums or buy my book off Amazon.
  2. You may use these files to recreate my old projects, as long as you give credit to this site.
  3. If you recreate a project and sell it, you must label it as a “Ben Heck Reproduction” and give credit to my website.
  4. At this time we do not offer CNC routing services for these old designs. However it’s more likely we’ll offer standard new kits of only the most popular projects (such as NES or Xbox 360 portables).
