    Day 1 Philadelphia
    Morning Sessions......8:30 AM - 12:00 NOON
    VECTRIC 2D & 2.5D DESIGN
    File Operation and Vector Creations are explored
    The design portion of this class explains in detail the creation, modification and combining of each of the vector creation tools.
    Transform and Edit Tools
    Also covered in depth are the Transform, Edit, Align and Offset & Layout tools. Drawing tab icons are covered one by one with all options explained. Information and methodology pertinent to woodworkers, sign makers and artists are covered.

    Art 101.
    Whether you’re making signs for the local restaurant or a creating a gift for a close friend, you’re making art.
    And there’s a lot to consider in making the best item possible.
    Design layout, Geometrical perspective, positive space vs. negative space, the size and choice of fonts, colour selection, which material to use,,,and the list goes on.
    This portion of the seminar will offer insight and ideas on what to do and how to make informed choices when it comes to designing your work.

    Aspire Basics,,,from the beginning.
    What’s a component,
    How to make a component.
    What happens if you combine components...
    This class sets the foundation for vector modification and model creation using Aspire.
    It is the intro to the Modeling Tools and offers users the knowledge to step up into 3-D modeling of their own designs.

    Notes: The Vectric Design and Toolpath classes are user participation classes taught by two instructors using a “left brain – right brain” tag team approach that should leave no attendee wanting. Attendees are asked to bring problematic files.
    Vector creation, transform and toolpath options available in Cut2D are an exact subset of those in VCarve Pro & Aspire and are taught together. The 2D & 2.5D Classes are a required prerequisite to all Aspire Classes.
    Version 8.5 of V-Carve and Aspire will be used throughout these sessions.

    A number of questions have come up regarding use of laptops at the Philly Seminar.

    There is an advantage to have Vectric software loaded on a laptop for these events. Both to follow along and to have problematic operations and files to present to the instructors.

    Instruction is given on the latest versions of all Vectric titles. Older versions may not have the same features, or they may not present or operate in the same manner as the current ones. The current version of VCarve Pro and Aspire is 8.5.14. You can access the version number from the "Help" menu and click on "About". Do yourself a favor and upgrade if one is available. One of the Vectric titles licensed in your name is preferred, but a trial version may get you by, but will limit file exchange with the instructors.

    Those with needs that are not listed on the schedule will be given an opportunity to add these to the request fill-in sheet for the 3rd days agenda. The instructors will be available during the breaks between sessions to answer your questions.

    As we know, traveling in large metropolitan areas is frustrating,,at best.
    Parking is even worse...
    And Philadelphia is no better than anywhere else.

    To make your visit here easier and to add to your overall experience at our CNC event, we have arranged for a shuttle service from select hotels that you may be staying at.

    The hotels we are suggesting are listed on our website .
    http://cncseminars.com/events/philadelphia-pa/

    It would very helpful for us to know which hotel those who are attending are staying at, so we can arrange the transportation, if you want it.

    Please feel free to contact me at mm@mezalick.com to let us know the hotel and if you have any questions.

    Hope to see you there.

    Default Bridge Clossing

    News Update for all Attendees of the Philadelphia CNC Seminars Event

    It has just been announced that the Delaware River- Turnpike Toll Bridge that connects the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-276) and the New Jersey Turnpike has been closed indefinitely.
    http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/r...ge-closed.html

    This is one of the main turnpike bridges that connects both states on the northern side of Philadelphia.

    If you are driving to Philadelphia for the CNC Seminars event next week, this may impact your travel time.

    Please check your travel route for alternate directions.

    Better safe than sorry...
