Do you have the original drawing or just an image?

If you have the original, send it to me in whatever format you have and I will convert it.

If it's an image, use Corel to trace it and then same as a PLT following my export document.

Since you don't have the original vector artwork, you will have to trace it.

I believe you can get better results with Corel but I used Inkscape and did a few minutes of cleanup, you could literally spend several hours making it near perfect but for your purpose I believe the attached would work. I included the SVG in case you want to do more work on it.

This is usually caused by an incorrect resolution setting or too large a file (pixel size).

Also restart your PC. It seems silly but it will help.

how do i scale an image properly? i have a traced bitmap that i saved with inkscape to dxf. when i load it to t2 and set the output size to max 60x40 the laser tries to go outside of its frame. The frame is 100x100 and i cant figure out hot the scaling/output size works. cause i put output size 600mmx40mm and still my laser tries to use more than the meter of space it has avilable...

I would suggest you start at the beginning, in the Help menu are some Samples.

Load the 10mm square and measure it to make sure the size is correct. If so, what you enter in T2Laser will be accurate.

If you are using the default lower left start position make sure you set home (0,0) at the lower left of your machine.
