I have a stl file I imported and I was wondering if there'd be a way to
make vector paths of the pattern. I'd like to speed up the process
using a 3/8" round nose bit, I have a few of these to make.
I tried to upload the file, it's too large

It is hard to know what you want to do without the file or a picture. Could you post a screen capture?

Here it is at a angle

So you want to be able to "carve" with the 3/8 round nose. I do not think there is a way. You would have to make a large number of different paths to be routed at different depths. It would probably take longer anyway. I think your best bet is to use the 3/16 ball nose as the pattern bit.

Ok I'll look into that
