I am going to show you how I get all my signs set up for the plasma cam to cut.

I wont have pictures of it actually cutting but I'll show the steps needed to get everything ready for the plasmacam to cut it.

You will need a plasma cutter and also the plasma cam software.

Step 1: Find a Photo AND Save
