Hi folks,

I posted this on the Vectric Forum and wanted to share the news here aswell! :D

Before Christmas I received an email from VA3D saying that they were discontinuing the V-Carve collection. So I had to buy it sooner than I intended before they were all gone! :eek: I figured with the $100 REDUCTION !! :eek: it was even more worthwhile. :)

UPS messed up the shipping and routed my parcel to god only knows where! I contacted VA3D about a week ago saying it hadn't arrived, and within a day they had it zipping its way to me! Fantastic service. You hear about fantastic service, but never really appreciate it until you need it yourself! James even gave me a free 3D model!

Anyway...now for the best part....2080 .eps/.ai models for $99...sounds great, and it is, the models are fantastic...REALLY. Im impressed. But here's the best part...that I really want to share, and I hope James doesn't mind, but I consider myself to have received 2080 3D models aswell for $99!!

:confused: How can this be? :confused: I hear you ask! :rolleyes:

I opened one or two of the models in Corel a few minutes ago, spent about 30 seconds blurring them, imported them into PhotoVCarve...and VOILA! I just had to post this....You can see the results for yourself! WOW. And for 2D Carving the models are really fantastic also. :banana:

This was a VERY quick job. I could easily get more detail even though its great as is. Doing this with Photo-V-Carve is so much easier when you have very good pictures to work from.

But Really....If you do one thing this year, run over to VA3D and buy the V-Carve Collection at $99 before they're all gone!


The service is utterly fantastic. A BIG SHOUT OUT FOR ILDI AND JAMES. Thankyou for the great sales support.

And get Photo-V-Carve while your at it!

L8rs....wow... :D

Unfortunately, I don't see any way of actually seeing what you get for the $99.

It'll take you more than a few minutes to follow all of the links to see what's in the collection.

I purchaced this collection when I got my V Carve 2d software. It's well worth the money. Some of the designs I'll never use probably. Even some that I may not want to use the entire design, I can remove parts and use them. For example...there may be a forest scene with a moose. I may not want it all........maybe just a tree, the moose, etc. I take what I want. Even at $199, It still was a good value.

Have to agree on with what the others said about this collection.
I received the collection a few day before Christmas and very happy with it.

Thanks for the tip on using the blurring option, will have to check that out.

Unfortunately Ger I don't imagine I could post pics since their copyrighted....not that I'd want to.....there is 2080 of them after all! lol :D

Lovebug, I load the image in Corel PhotoPaint, although other programs have the same features. I usually use gaussian blur once, then smooth a few times. Then invert the image before loading it in Photo-V-Carve. Set the stepover to about 15% or less in PVC and thats it! There are a few threads in the PVC section of the Vectric forum about it.

Hey thkoutsidthebox; Nice work, What size bit are you useing for the roughing? and what size for the finishing pass? Also what depth? Thanks Brady

Hi brady. the two pics above were only the previews generated with PhotoVCarve, although the preview is always pretty much exactly the same as the result. The preview was for a 6mm ball for the roughing toolpath, and a 1/8" ball nose for the finishing. Both carvings were generated at 12"x12" if I remember correctly, and the depth was aout 1/4".
