Nature enthusiasts this one's for you!  It's always fun to go for a nature walk and stumble across an animal track.  The feeling that you are on the path that was previously taken by a wild animal seems to be magical and exciting.

If you are a hunter this project might be what you have been waiting for to help outfit your hunting camp with a unique welcome sign, piece of furniture, or wall plaque.  Remember that bear that got into the trash and then looked up and spotted the fish you were about to cook... yeah... we thought so.  How about a plaque to keep the memory alive? or not.

We have designed a few neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and reuse.  These features include: 

- Wood slab has been modeled with a flat top to easily accept VCarving or even the addition of another model.
- All of the tracks have been modeled so that when you add them to the wood slab, or any other model, they are recessed like real tracks in nature.
- Add the slab dish to the top of the wood slab and create a dished model that you can use like most of our sign and plaque models. 

Get making "tracks" to your CNC and get a project on the move!

Post your finished project in the Vectric User Forum under Vector Art 3D / Design and Make It - Gallery or Email us an image of a project you made that uses one of our projects and a short description (try to include software used, the CNC ,finishing process and a social link... don't forget your name).  

When it gets posted we will be sure to let you know!!!!

Thanks Don Harding for the great image!
