    Hi Rob, don't know if this will help you or not, I just loaded an image into vectric aspire and used the "trace" function. Maybe you can do something with it if not suitable.

  4. Thanks Mate!

    I think it is the same image I tried to trace with Inkscape, but I ended up with so many open vectors and duplicate vectors, I ended up abandoning my attempt.

    I can't seem to upload a dxf file so here is a dropbox link to my attempt.

    Got it Rob, I can see why you had some problems with that file, it's massive !!! I actually struggled to open it.

    Now that I can see what you're after, I've done another knot for you, not perfect by any means, but maybe something you could work with to get a start.

    I am happy to have a go if you are not fixed up.

    There are a lot of duplicate lines etc. Do you want to engrave this ie do you want to have all the 35 odd islands as vectors and the outside shape as one vector, and the 3 big island as one vector

    let me know

  7. Thanks for the offer Clive, but I have it sorted now thanks to Needleworks. I will cut a test on ply tomorrow and if it looks OK then I will make some sapele shavings.

    Cheers everyone, we have a heartwarming community here !
