Help laying out tool path for sign

I am trying to make a new sign for my wood shop. I have a logo but the tracing tool keeps giving me extra lines and can’t seem to outline the hand plane. Any help would be appreciated.

Female threads

I am possibly in the market for a 3rd axis for my Axiom. I am running VCarve Pro and was wondering if there is a function to cut female threads? What kind of bit would I need? Would use the 3rd axis to cut the male threads.

Mini wine bottle advent calendar

My wife wants a dozen mini wine bottle advent calendars so her and her friends can paint them. I bought a file on Etsy and it’s for a larger machine than I have so when I scaled it the bottles don’t fit. Anyone have a file that will fit on a 2’x4’ CNC and can be cut with a 1/4” bit?

Can't open your file since you use Aspire and I am using VCarve Pro

Help outlining scanned shape

I scanned a picture of a rear chair leg and can't figure out how to trace it. I used the trace bitmap tool but I can't get a single solid outline. Is there a trick? I played with the shading and parameters and this was the best I could do.

Need help with tool paths

I am trying to get these vectors correct and having a heck of a time. I tried uploading the picture and tracing the lines but can’t get it right. The S is supposed to be a through cut while the rest is 1/4” deep engraving. Can someone give me a hand? I tried to recreate it from scratch and after 90 ...

Re: Canoe stations

I have the book and could cut the stations out by hand. I figured since I have a CNC the stations would come out a lot smoother using it.

Canoe stations

I am interested in building a wood strip canoe but would like to cut my own molding stations. Anyone know if a place to find the stations on line for VCarve? I am interested in a few models from Bear Mountain Boats.

I have a sign that I would like to overlap the letters. In the center I want to send the P to the back so that the name in the center overlays it.
