By today's standards, most business don't seem to care much about their customers once they have your money. Not so with Vectric and their team. Every time I have contact with them, like this forum for one, I am completely "blown away" by their attitude, business practices, and true willingness to help. I am truly proud to own a Vectric product and to be associated with the company and most everyone that use their products. I think of them as family. Although you are here for us, we are here for you too.

Thanks for all you do. Subscribed to your YouTube channel.
I have always felt very pleased to be a client of Vectric.
They have "EARNED" my trust to be a reliable and kind group of awesome workers.
Be safe,and careful because it's not what I get, but what I give to others and I'm thinking about my Grandma.

Thanks Bekki,

Quite innovative ….

Whilst on a government imposed and willingly self imposed isolation I will welcome your Utube videos. Look forward to them!

I the past I am sure that you have seen examples of my work...

Dodecahedrons with decorative panels

As a new project, during this very difficult period, I am experimenting with employing "Nail Art" techniques … Girley stuff.. to colour small acrylic panels that I will use to decorate my mathematical shapes.

There are some quite beautifully coloured and blended effects that women use to decorate their nails.

I wonder if any other members of this forum have ever tried this sort of technique

Martin,
Looks like on the IG page you actually need to click on the “Design and Make” logo to access the feed…but…you also need an IG account—shame on you IG!

Some of the other videos are readily viewable. If the IG post has a blue bar on the top it’s a video. See attached image. Problem is the video screen in enclosed within so much extra cruft that it’s like something out of 1996—shame on you IG!

Thanks Steven, I actually tried all that & still couldn't connect but I have just read the message on the design & make IG page & it says you need a mobile app device. I was trying to watch on my desktop PC so think that will have been the problem. If they are only available on a mobile app device then I probably won't bother with them, I find the screen on my phone is to small to be able to view things like this properly. The ones that are done live on you tube are OK though so I can still watch those. :lol: :lol:
