    I have attached a copy fo a scroll design a woman would like for me to cut. I tried to convert it so I could cut it on my table, but could not get very good clarity. Can anyone convert this to a DXF file for me? I would appreciate it very much. Thanks.

  2. Have you tried to trace it in Inkscape? You can trace the image using Inkscape and it will add the nodes.

    oh, that's the b-spline tool

    around 6:20 I combined multiple spline objectss (or I could hit convert-to-curves on each spline) and that creates a normal (non-spline) curve

    if it remained a spline curve then the node-edit tool doesn't work quite the same on splines

    Thank you very much.

    I have been visiting this site for about a week now and have learned quite a lot here, I tried a couple of samples on both my cnc and laser machines and quality is very good. :)

    Will make a donation soon.

    Best regards

    Like Sean I missed that one too.
    I don't use the B-Spline tool much but do find it really good for creating patterns etc.where it's not detail specific and making the lines flow. Trying to follow a specific shape like a photo trace I find that I have trouble keeping the trace on the edge so use the polyline tool.

    Thanks for the tutorial on how you designed the scroll the lady wanted. She loved it. I will post something in the near future.
