Help Wanted with drawing

Postby ETCWeld » Sun Jan 14, 2018 2:05 am

I was given this image from my program advisor to see if I could cut it for her.
I'm not sure who made it for her, but she scanned it and sent it to me in a pdf.
I finally managed to get it into my torchmate software, I used the scan tool trace option and cleaned up the drawing quite a bit, but I can't manage to get the bottom of the paws and the back leg to join the rest of the fox. With that said, these aren't the dxf's, because I couldn't figure out how to share that. I actually had a different dxf of a fox and I made the sign to see if she liked it, but I would love to know what i was doing wrong.

Turns out I can't even post a regular img. Photobuck wouldn't let me paste the img so I'll have to figure this part out to. I will try again. Any pointers or help will be appreciated. I'll try to post better later today after I get some sleep.

Thanks in advance,

Low resolution - that would be a file to hand trace and recreate the text. You're not doing anything wrong except auto trace just doesn't always work. At the very least you'd have to use a raster editing program to draw in the parts that are much lighter and clean up the noise.

Here's a video I made that might help get you going in the right direction:
