Getting started with the Western Scenes Collection

Interested in purchasing the Western Scenes Collection but are not sure where to start with a layout?  You might already have the collection and want to get the most out of it.  Maybe you're just interested in how our CNC projects work with Vectric's VCarve Desktop, Pro V8 or Aspire.  We have created 2 videos that focus those software packages and using the models you receive with the Western Scenes Collection, but the method, tips and tricks can be used to create a layout using models from any of our projects or your own collection!

Both videos are just over 20min, so that's lots of time to sit back, have a cup of coffee and learn a bit about how our projects work and how fast it is to create a great looking layout!

If you're not yet subscribed you might just consider clicking the "Subscribe" to get our latest videos added to your YouTube stream.

Free CNC Projects and DropBox

We get this question every so often and we though it might be good to post the answer here.  If you have ever downloaded any of our free CNC Projects you will have noticed that we, currently, use DropBox to host the files.  DropBox is a great cloud based product used to share files and store files in the cloud so you can access them anywhere you are (free plug for 

Like any free product there is a catch... anytime they can they try to get new users to sign up.  With any "great" free product there is a way to decline the offer but still get to the content.  With DropBox there is exactly that.

To download any free content we offer that is hosted in DropBox without needing or setting up an account is easy.  

Look for the blue link at the bottom of the "Create a free DropBox account" window (green arrow is pointing right at it).

When you click that you will be returned to the previous web page and the download should start automatically. 

If you're presented with a different window, simply click outside of the pop-up.  The window should disappear and you can then click the `Download` button.

Yes, we know it is not the best solution but for now that is the best we can do.  

Hope that helps and if you have any other questions about this or anything else on Design and feel free to contact us.

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.
