Turn an image into a file for Printing/Cutting[edit]

  1. Select your picture
  2. First you will need to convert the image file (Jpg or PNG are probably best) to a SVG (scalable vector graphics)
  3. I used https://image.online-convert.com/convert-to-svg
    You need to convert to an SVG since that is what many CAD software packages can take for input. for more information on SVG files see wikipedia
  4. You will need to play around with the scale, Start with 30%, then save the file
  5. Next you will need to import the SVG file into your choice of CAD software.
    This is where you might need to play around with this and back a step to re-convert the file if it take up too much of the work area.
