OK, I admit I'm a newbie but have been sending parts to Lasers, Waterjets, and Plasma cutters for 20 years or so before I retired...

I joined this sight and have spent at least the past 3 hours sort of wondering around... there are a lot of answers here... I'm really amazed.. BTW - a google search lead me here... but can't find the .dxf files that I thought were here.....

Now the wife wants some Southwest Artsy stuff - baying wolf, cactus, Kokopeli and other stuff like this on the frame of a metal gate we're building for our home in AZ.... something we can let rust and age....

I'm looking these items already drawn in a tool path we can get loaded onto a water jet... AutoCad, etc... etc.. even Coral Draw we can convert...

I've been using the same waterjet service for at least the last 7-8 years, and he gets lots of calls for this stuff but like myself he is not an artist...

I've found lots of disc's available on the net but no way to preview what your buying....

Someone come and help... please.... either a post on this thread or an email to jelag@msn.com.....

There are hundreds of dxf's in there that people here have been generous enough to share. may take a while to sift thru though, the thread is 562 pages long and still going.
