Guys, I’m still a bit of a NOOB. Here is my current dilemma…I have a simple black and white image of a Stormtrooper helmet
My suggestion would be to do a V carving (this will allow you to get the more delicate areas), and to add geometry to pocket the larger areas:
Use Inkscape to turn an image into an SVG file. It’s pretty simple and I do it often. Search for how to do it and test it out to get good results.
@kb3421 I am looking into create images on the Shapeoko as well. I see that you have no issue converting the image to .SVG file. Unfortunately, I do not know how to do that so myself. Could you provide me with information on what program I can use to do so? Thank you for your time!
@The_real_janderson woooohoooooo Ive been looking for information to get this done. Thanks!!!
To convert a pixel image into a vector file you can either autotrace, or re-draw.
