    Hi all, I hope this is in the right area. I need to picture below converting to DXF / Gcode. I'm a little lost ! Are there any kind chaps out there willing to do this for me for me please.

    I would be grateful if someone could help, thank you.

    Thank you very much

    Carl

    Download Draftsight, it's free (plenty of other free drawing programs out there) insert the image as a reference image and draw over it on a different layer. Scale it to the correct dimensions and it's a dxf...

    I save them as 2013, only really matters if you're sending to someone else who can't open 2013 files...

    Carl, try this, used Inkscape to vectorize it then CamBam to clean up a few bits.

    Cheers.

    First attempt. I will need to fiddle about with some settings and get a smaller engraving cutter as its cutting into some other lines, That's not a problem though.

    Cheers Again

    Maybe use a V cutter and don't cut so deep
