Converting a complex vector graphic to a simple version for vinyl cutting

Aug 17, 2012 12:31 PM

Does anyone know how I go about taking this complex graphic full of various lines to one simplified and united line drawing? We want to take and cut a vinyl window application. The white in the logo is what we want the vinyl to be. The gray only indicates the window.

    Look it over carefully and make sure there are no overlapping paths. Those will shuck up your fit.
