Free Project of the Month - Jade & Ebony Box

This “Jade & Ebony” box project is all wood, yet has a realistic appearance of carved green jadestone. The casual onlooker will be convinced it’s the real thing! The “jade” effect was created with a
fun marbleizing technique described in the finishing section of these instructions. The best part is, anyone can do it!

Version 8.5 Released

We are pleased to announce that Version 8.5 of Aspire, VCarve (Pro & Desktop) and Cut2D (Pro & Desktop) is now available. This is the direct successor to V8, and includes enhancements in all key areas of the software. In addition to these improvements, both versions of VCarve along with Aspire have added a new machining function called the 'Moulding Toolpath' and Aspire also gains 'Create Texture Area' - a very powerful new modeling function. 

Version 8.5 is a FREE upgrade to all customers who already have a copy of version 8.0. If you do not already own V8, the upgrade prices for the products can be found on the upgrade page.

The new software installation is being distributed via your Vectric Customer Portal account which allows you to access software and clipart along with your licence codes at any time. It will be a completely new installation, not a patch. If an existing copy of the version 8 software is currently installed then your existing Tool Database, Postprocessors and Gadgets will be copied across to the new installation.

If you are a V8 customer and do not have access to the Vectric Customer Portal please contact support@vectric.com with your registration information.

You can read a description of all the enhancements along with video demonstrations and download the “What’s New” documentation from the following pages:

Maker Faire - Report

This year we had our own stand at the Bay Area Maker Faire for the first time. It’s no mean feat to arrange a 10’ x 10’ booth with three working CNC machines and lots of interesting samples and projects using only our hand luggage allowance on the 10 hour flight from the UK – but we managed it… just!
