If you click the "green pointer" and then the'To Here" on the map, and then insert your own suburb, it will auto generate a map specific to your needs.

    We need to get as much stuff to look at as possible.

    I would love to see an MDF router make an appearance. To show some with a limited budget what is possible.

    I'll stick my hand up for name badges again. New design and better colour.

    Done of course using Mach3 and Vcarve Pro. No better still I'll use Cut2D.

    Last BBQ Vectric kindly sponsored us with a copy of Photo Vcarve to give away as a door prize.

    This time I will show some Lithophanes to show off one of it's coolest capabilities.

    I prefer the term 'appropriately passionate'

    I wonder if we could get Epson to sponser the event and supply a C87 for the weekend, we could give it back on Monday, well most of it anyway

    Last time there were quite a few electronics guys there, one even has a pick and place machine. I think between the lot of you, you will all have a lot in common.
