Beki's Top Tip
Did you know objects can be moved by fixed distances (or nudges) by holding ctrl + shift and tapping the arrow keys. The fixed nudge distance specifies the distance to move selected objects with each nudge. You can edit this distance from the snapping options in the edit menu.

Shoehorn Challenge and More with Peter Parfitt

We are so excited to of had Peter Parfitt, from The New Brit Workshop, guest appearing with Todd in Vectric's May YouTube Live event. Peter shared some practical ideas of how he uses his CNC in The New Brit Workshop and uses his CNC as another tool in the shop allowing him to utilize its accuracy to create all sorts of jigs and other projects that he finishes using traditional woodworking techniques.

He also set Todd a challenge, can Vectric make a shoehorn on our CNC within 2 hours? That's the time it takes him to create a CNC/Woodworking version...can Todd do it? You will have to watch and see if he can pull it off!
