    Cool I am an idiot

    Now that I introduced myself sub-partially.... I have to get some logos created into ild files. I have no talent at all and have no earthly idea how to use the programs you guys refer to. Can I get someone to please email me at steveowens2531 at gmail dot com and help me out? If I violated rules here for posting this... I plea the idiot rule. Thanks!

    Steve

    Subgenious is a better word.

    Do you have the logos already done in a raster image; like a gif or bitmap?

    If you have BMPs, you can open them in LaserBoy and draw vectors over them, in color, with blanking and save that as an ILDA file.

    You can also use some kind of CAD application to draw them, save that as DXF and open that in LaserBoy and convert it to ILDA.

    best would probably be vector like svg. please post pics of them here.
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    If they're already in vector, then he's only a couple of steps away from ILDA.

    Getting to vector is usually the hard part.

    bitmap trace in inkscape works quite well. assuming the input file is good. i use it a lot when making dxf's for my laser cutter.

    The logos have text in them of course.... Coach's doesnt need Sports Bar & Grill. GA Music doesnt need the 2014. EGA doesnt need any txt. Chehaw doesnt need natures playground. and DJ Orbit text can go away as well. I am just really ignorant when it comes to creating these.
