Those are both nice clean files, and I particularly like the second one - it has a real 3D feel to it. I agree with both Tom and Dennis that with the correct post processor for Sheetcam to match your system, you should have great luck cutting these. I know that the Sheetcam trial version has a code line limit, but you could try it out on something simple just as proof of concept before upgrading to the unlimited version.
Good luck!
