I am trying to make a neon sign out of this and I just need to simplify the image a little bit to make some no offeset channels. For instance just a single circle around the outside. How can i remove some of the lines and run a job just the outline of this image?

I clicked on the image, everything was selected.
Go to ungroup
Click on a blank space, highlighted image will not be highlighted. Click on the lines you would like to delete press delete key. I did some for you, to show you. Use your file to do it the way you want.

Note that the below is obsoleted in current versions of Carbide Create by the ability to asymmetrically scale a circle into an oval/ellipse.

I believe that you’ll have better luck w/ this if everything is constructed in the same way.
If you’re not familiar w/ Bezier / vector drawing programs, I’d suggest doing some tutorials — we do have some for Inkscape:
This should be straight-forward to make — I assume that what you want is:
two drilled holes to fasten the piece in place and to allow for a cord to be passed through
text which will be V-engraved
an outer pe…
If one only has a pixel image:
then one has three options:
auto-tracing — EDIT: Carbide Create has since gained this feature:
Carbide Create - Image Tracing
using the pixel image using a tool such as MeshCAM or Carbide Create Pro’s texture feature
re-drawing — this is a tutorial on this:
Begin by going to Job Setup and setting the Stock Size and importing the image onto the background:
