Hi ... my system for producing Laser files :
From a plan or a drawing - I use a simple scanner .... my Canon or Epson 3in1 printers do a good job ... to scan the item needed. Then using Paint or any graphic editing program - I remove the unnecessary lines / bits so left with the item required. Save as JPG Another way is to use Paint to draw what you need ... For repairs and replacement of broken parts .......... I place broken part - even a fuselage on the scanner .... scan and then using Paint create the new part as a JPG. My Laser cutter program allows import of JPG ... I then use the vector drawing tools in the Laser program to create the outline required by overdrawing on top of the JPG ... then unclick the JPG leaving the vector displayed. Save as Laser file. I then have a Laser file saved that I can cut as many items as needed. I find creating these files super easy as they are in 2D .... unlike trying to create 3D for 3D priniting !!
