Importing Image to Carbide Create - Please Help!

I am completely new to this entire machine and industry. My intention of this machine is to cut out letters, shapes and images. What is the easiest way to accomplish this? Including converting images, etc.

Carbide Create can import a DXF or an SVG — the latter has to be vector elements only — not text as text (convert to paths first), and no embedded pixel images. There are also some limits on the geometry, and it does best with closed paths.

It can import a pixel image to the background which then allows one to trace it — tutorial on this here:

If you’d describe some specific task, I’m sure we can either find a tutorial on it (the video ones are at: ) or create a customized one — let us know.
