What drawing formats do you have for the 7 emblem? If I can pull it into Fusion 360 or s dxf or svg straight into my CAM package it's easy to produce.


He posted a .jpg which I believe can be pulled into F360. Saw a YT video on it a while back, I "think" it was James Clough (Clough42).


You can pull in a jpeg, but it comes in as a canvas. It's just an image that you have in the background and have to trace over.

I drew the DXF shown above. All I ask is that if you are making them for sale, please send me one gratis.
Thanks,
Paul

Cheers,

Where is BOTBASHER when you need him.. Was thinking back when he had was cranking those out that he should have made a bunch more.
They are spot on.

BOTBASHER was really set up for these. Access to a laser cutter and stud gung at his work. I can get nice lines, but nowhere near the cut quality he had in stainless. In mild steel I'll go toe to toe with Laser on anything except kerf width.

My local fab shop has a water jet I'll ask for a quote.

What's the size? I don't have a nose to measure. 7"?
