D&M item and paths

Post by DET1242 »

Not sure on how to ask this.
I am running Aspire 11 and on a Shark system. I want to cut a couple of the "Magnolia" pieces from the D&M "plant and fruits". I created a new project (8" x 9") amd then imported the Manolia from the D&M site. How do I get the toolpaths? I thought the tool paths would come over with the down.load.
this is the first one of these types of projects for me. :

Thank You, for your response.
the project came out nice with the exception of the profile. I must not have tightened the bit down enough so it went a little wild. New piece of wood will fix that tomorrow.
thanks again for your support.

Hey DET1242...

Excellent... and good to hear. Keep safe and make sure that cutter is secure in your machine... yikes... but we have all done the same thing in the past... ;)

Be safe!
