I dont know that program but i use inkscape to trace what kind of cutter are you using go to http://forum.uscutter.com/ and someone their can help you.
we've had this vinyl plotter at work for about 6 moths now. i was assigned to lean how to use it to make simple letters and numbers and that was easy enough. now i've been asked to do several other things that i just cant figure out. they want me to cut things like the company logo and outlines of basic hand tools. i think i need to digitize the images but am not sure if someone could give me a few pointers that would be great.
if it helps any the program i'm using is stencial-cad basic
Looking at the Stencil-cad manual, you have several options to cut out logos and outlines... For example... you can import several graphics file formats or use a scanner to bring in an image. Just keep in-mind that most items you import or scan will need cleanup to cut properly...
I would personally recommend using Illustrator, but Corel Draw will work as well.
Each has a trace feature which will help you to "re-draw" the images into a vector format.
In order to get a clean draw, the images will need to be fairly high quality and good contrast.
You will most likely have to clean up the work a bit afterwards (as previously mentioned), but adjusting the trace settings should go a long way to help.
