Installed a project and can't find the Project Sheet?

A question we seem to get often is:

"I can't find the Project Sheet for the project I just installed.  Where did it go?"

The answer is on the FAQ page but we felt it deserved it's own Shop Notes post... so here it is.

If you are using the Vectric Installer than anything that is included in the project will be installed into the project directory.   That is located in the Vectric clip-art folder under the specific project's name. You will need to use your Windows Explorer to navigate to the folder to see it. 

If you have downloaded a zip file than anything that is included in the project will be installed into the folder where you have chosen to unzip the file. 

Hope that helps.

VCarve Pro users this post is for you!

We are very excited about Vectric’s recent new release of VCarve Pro version 8. Previously only Aspire users could work with our projects but one of the major new features for VCarve is the ability to import multiple 3D models in their V3M file-format. As all our projects are available as V3M’s and so anyone upgrading to VCarve Pro version 8 will be able to work with any of our designs in the software! You can read more about the new release, watch videos (including one on how to assemble clip-art) and download a free trial version to check out the new features from this page on the Vectric website: What’s New in VCarve Pro V8. For our Aspire using customers you also have some excellent new tools available in the upgrade too: What’s New in Aspire V8.

Along with this new release Vectric have also added the VCarve Desktop edition, this is perfect for anyone with a smaller light-duty machine looking to add some serious design and machining capability at an affordable price, best of all this can also import and assemble any of our projects too! You can read about the full VCarve range of software here:
