How to make files for laser cutting? Answered
I have some psd files of some animals I'd like to make some acrylic lasercut figures out of. One layer for just the outline, and another layer for engraving details.
I have no idea what files a lasercutter needs to be able to make these. I brought my psd files to one of the workshops where I work, but was told to email my files to this guy who could make them into vector. Unfortunately he only did one of the files (out of five), so I figured I might be able to just figure out how to make the rest myself, but I'm really confused how this works. He sent me two files, a pdf and a ai.
I really only know Photoshop, and my experience with Illustrator is very limited (next to none). And I know nothing about pdf's.
Is there any easy way to make whatever files a lasercutter needs, for a simple shape and a few engravings?
