The Vectric HQ has moved!
We're very pleased to announce that Vectric has moved to a new building. It has taken several months of planning and refurbishment and then recently a very busy couple of weeks sorting, packing and moving. The new office has more space and more importantly a much bigger workshop area for Vectric Labs. We're already feeling the benefit of having a top quality facility to work in and this will provide us with much more scope as we continue to grow the business.

Hi Kent - the workshop is still a work in progress. Some of it is functional but it also has a number of partly assembled pieces of CNC machinery, storage shelving etc. Hopefully we'll have some pictures of that area for the next newsletter.

I always enjoy reading the forum everyday and learning everything I can which has allowed me to advance in my techniques. The wealth of knowledge here is unsurpassed and the willingness to share it is unbelievably refreshing. Having recently upgraded to Aspire 8 allows me to eliminate steps and actually accomplish some that weren't possible before (at least for me). The new features are a welcome upgrade and I find myself spending more time creating projects than actually carving them simply because I can.
I'm glad to see Vectric expanding because it's a testament to their commitment to providing us the best possible tools to create projects using their software which would otherwise be out of reach for all but the wealthy.

Kudos to the Vectric Team and this community. Thank you!

I often refer to this section as a refresher to gather more ideas for projects and keep up with the goings on at Vectric.
psssssst........the links for the Insignia Giant Pin and Carved Doors take you to a different post.
