Customer Focus - Bob Hagan

This great hack was sent to us from Bob Hagan.  Notice the detail achieved in the texture he used for the background.  

"It was made on a CNC Shark HD Pro."

Bob used his copy of Vectric's VCarve Pro V8 to create his layout.

"(models used are) by Design and Make, which is Deep In The Wild. The woodgrain background is from the, Elk Scenes." 

Both of those projects are included in the Wildlife Scenes Collection and are bundled together for a special proce.

"The Celtic Knot Frame is from Vectric."

It is easy to overlook the free clip-art that gets installed with your Vectric software.  In this case Bob took advantage of the Celtic weaves... nice choice!  

"It is made on 1” thick cedar, it is 21” tall and 24” wide. It has 3 clear coats of lacquer."

"Thank you for noticing the detail. I really enjoy your software."

Thank you Bob for sharing your project with us!

Perfect customizable CNC project hack for the door to your own personal or  local Makerspace. 

This "Beware Maker Inside!" shop sign was created using models from these projects:

The font we used to simulate the v-carving on this layout is called:  Palatino Linotype

Like to tinker in the shop or make the occasional electronics project?  Maybe you like to combine your love of old school woodworking with the technology of a CNC or dream of the possibilities of adding lights and movement to your projects.  We are pretty sure that makes you a maker and you just might be going to the 2016 Bay Area Maker Faire.  

Vectric is a proud Blacksmith sponsor!

Vectric is a proud Blacksmith sponsor!

If that's the case keep your eyes peeled for the Vectric booth cause Design and Make will be there!  Make sure you stop in and say "Hi!"

Note - This hack was assembled in Aspire V8 for presentation purposes.  It could have been done in VCarve Pro V8 or VCarve Desktop.

Yep you heard right, Vectric and Design and Make will be a the Bay Area Maker Faire.  If you use Vectric software or Design And Make CNC Projects to help you "make",  just interested in what they are all about or have a question for the team you should stop by.  You just never know what new things they might be showing off or demoing that just might help make your "maker" dreams come true!  

Why not hack together your own layout mixing and matching models from other projects or from your own library!  For some great inspiration check out our  hacks page!

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!
