Have a …svg imagine of a logo want to know how to change the path so it will cnc the outline of the letters and imagine rather than the inside. Trying to make LED signs that just do a fast shallow outline.

Select logo/letters, create a “contour” toolpath, set “offset direction” to “no offset”, and set cutting depth to something small. That will only work if you use a Vbit or very small endmill.

For LED signs you could use diamond drag bits.
