Thread: Begging for help!

  1. Default Begging for help!

    I'm trying to get this pattern to do a cut path but I just can't figure it out. I want the look of a real rough edged sign but take out the pole on top and bottom. Anyone have suggestions???? TIA

    I like that but I need the outline of the one I posted or something very similar. I'm using the blank area to put some other things in. Thank you.

    You can use a graphics program to erase the post portion and then remove the background from the image. I then filled in with a grey to move it off the bottom and then imported into CW designer. This is what you get. You can manipulate it further if you want to remove more of the board and just leave the jagged board edges.

    Set the wood sign depth a little deeper to get the edge detail to show better and apply bit optimization best. If you have conforming vectors you should set it for your outline text.
