Vectric UGM 2022 - Thank You

A big thank you to everyone who joined our User Group Meetings over the last month to catch up on the latest trends, community news, and share our passion for CNC. We were pleased to see hundreds of hobbyists and makers coming together for the first face to face meetings in 3 years to hear about the latest in version 11 plus sneak peaks on the exciting new functionality coming soon in version 11.5.

There were so many opportunities to learn new skills from the Vectric team, including; textures, rotary and lenticular machining, stacked text, 3D modeling and tips on how to turn your CNC hobby into a business. We wanted to say a huge 'thank you' to our guest speakers who shared their knowhow on epoxy and v-carving inlay techniques, Yakisugi replication techniques, hybrid laser machining, and how to maximize your CNC's efficiency. It was a pleasure to see such expertise being shared amongst our wonderful community, and we look forward to seeing you get the most out of your software and gain more confidence to grow your hobby into a successful business.

Introducing Gamer Wall Light

We have launched a brand new Gamer model project to the Design & Make store!

This epic wall light is inspired by arcade and console gaming heritage and is perfect for all those competitive hobbyists who relish interactive gaming, or even families with a home full of kids who love to play computer games! Add this as a cool backdrop or prop where you game, make it into an award for friends who want to 'slick up' their team spirit or brand your virtual reality venue and help boost your business!

Watch as Olly creates this cool light which comes in 3 cleverly designed parts allowing you to machine the plaque, gamer and console separately for easy cutting and assembly. Why not mix it up and make each piece in a different wood or other material, customize with some v-carving and use the handy fixings to add neon strip lights as a finishing touch! Slide over to our brand new collection of gamer models now available in the Design & Make store!
