illustrator to large dgx file question? Answered
I'm in a bit of a hurry as there is a competition I want to enter by Friday but I just need to know before doing so if this is possible in theory. ( I only have to enter the image on Friday not the the object)
My final aim is to have an intricate image laser cut into metal sheet (5' x 7'.) at a metal fabricator's.
I have imported an A4 sized single colour tif. file into Illustrator and have converted it to a vector using Livetrace; it is now an ai. file.
This as far as I have got .
But the question is ;
I plan to use one of the available convertors to change this ai. file to a dgx. file.
Do I simply then take that to a fabricator and then that's it ?
Have I missed out a hundred steps and complications ?
Or is there a better way ?
Or is it not possible to scale up an image this way?
It's obvious that I don't know what I'm doing so any advice will be appreciated.
