Could use some help.

Post by jacylong2018 » Tue Nov 27, 2018 10:22 am

I am an educator and my license for my design software has expired. Working for a school it takes awhile to get paper work done for me to renew my license. I have some designs I was working on for some customers and now I cannot finish them. If someone could help me out and make these into dxf files I would greatly appreciate it.

Download Inkscape, it's free and there's plenty of tutorials on Youtube, etc.

The leopard traces real easy but it has a zillion dropouts so don't know how you'll cut that one.

Easily...that's how beefy :D
If we look at the leopard and think how to keep the spots one easy way pops into mind. Simply break the interior path running parallel to the outside perimeter in a few strategic places annnnnd...voila.....spots cut out and all detail remains. Will need to do the same around the mouth, eyes etc. Anywhere detail will drop.
Check....and mate! :lol: Just sooooo busy can't even take on this easy one at the moment.
Take care guys!

Took a little lunch break and traced it out for you, quick example of what I was explaining. Scaled to 24" tall.

Thank you!
For a little more learning, or a way to see more clearly what I did just pull the original pic into cad, bring in the .dxf and scale to size where it is a direct overlay. Will scale exact. (or should) :) Helps to select a bright red from your palette to color the lines of the drawing. Should see where I chose to break it.
Have a great one guys!
