    Antonio's clocks are in a pdf format. How would you convert this into something that you could generate g code from?

    Bruce,

    Inkscape can open PDFs and save as DXF, but I've had better results with Vectric Cut2D which can open pdfs directly,

    I tried cut 2d but it seemed to load every page of the pdf at once.
    Just loaded inkscape and it worked a treat. You can select which page to load and then save them to dxf. Thanks Nathan
