Beki's Top Tip
Did you know, you can move objects in precise increments that you can specify? Simply head over to your snap options (F4) and enter a fixed nudge distance. With that set select a vector(s) and hold down CTRL & SHIFT whilst moving the object(s) using the ARROW keys on your keyboard, the vector will move the distance set with every nudge!


We understand these are very difficult and stressful times, so we wanted to get in touch and let you know that we’ll be here to help in any way we can.

Our support team are all able to work remotely so we are well equipped to navigate the current crisis together with you, our great community. Our employees are taking precautions and we're keeping a close eye on the developing situation, so, for the time being, we do not anticipate any change to our normal service levels.

Whether you’re working from home, taking care of the kids during school closures, or are just looking for more reasons to spend time in the shop, we’ll be here to help.

If you’re looking for inspiration, tips and tricks, training or free projects during these difficult times check out the ‘Vectric Community’ area on our website or come and say hello on the Vectric forum.

Stay safe and healthy from everyone on the Vectric Team.

My Recording Studio | Design&Make

It's all the rage now for kids to want to record themselves singing, dancing or turn their creative energy into a music video to share on the internet.
