How make make custom Vector files for cnc plotter,
Take a photo of the pattern required either of the direct object or with a hand drawn 2D pattern
Import it into a vector generating program
Create the vector you need and export file.
Import it into your signage software and trace tool.
Size it to scale for object in question.
One small pattern could take 3 to 6 hours to achieve so it isnt something that is a quick solution.
To get the best value it is best to line up 2 or 3 cars all.needing the same pattern to make it worth both our time.

First we take a photo and import it into vector line drawing software
This is the line drawing made by hand on the software and saved without the photo layer (.PNG)
The image is then imported into the Sign writing software and the vector trace is made (CNC)
Now we make a draft cut with the plotter before we try it on the PPF material
