2009 Vectric User Group Meeting Training DVD - Now Available!

"The DVD is an absolute gold mine!"

"The User Group Meeting DVD is a excellent technical resource and is really helping me get the most from Aspire."

Joe Sabine, Owner of GripUs.COM, USA

If you were unable to attend the 2009 User Groups, you can now purchase a DVD containing all the presentations and video tutorial materials covered at the sold out events.

The User Group DVD contains a huge amount of information, and is a must for all Aspire users. It contains over 12 hours of high quality videos covering all the presentations and step by step demonstrations delivered at the meetings in Pittsburgh and Dallas. The DVD also includes an extra 3 hours of material that there simply wasn't time to cover at the meetings!


Along with the video tutorials, the DVD also contains the Aspire files & models used for each of the demonstrated projects (Note: the project files were produced in a Beta version of Aspire 2.5 and will only open in the new version which will be released very soon).

The feedback we have received about the content of the User Group Meetings has been excellent and we have had many people commenting on the quality of the videos and usefulness of the content on the DVD.

"What a fabulous meeting!"
"Very professional and informative meeting with two days of great material and ‘real world application tutorials' that answered many questions for me as well as for others. The meeting gave me a new insight into what Aspire can do and with a little bit of your own imagination, how much further it can take you."
Michael Mezalick, Mezalick Design Studio

"Many thanks for two great days of training & presentations. Obviously you guys put a tremendous amount of effort into the preparation and you far exceeded my expectations."
Ray Paquin
