Hi Bianca

I turned both in to vector files then..... the ones on the right are for cutting..... Not sure what you are trying to do here so let us know if you need further help. If this is your first try at laser work you may need a little more guidance once we figure out what you want. Also, what version of CorelDraw are you using. Let me know if you can't open this.

ok thank you so much all for your hard work,
ok its indead new for me, and i want to engrave the head on wood, and cut the head out of the wood, so you have a ornament

These files are also great for acrylic, but i want engrave the head
and then cut it arround only the shape not the details, for wood

like the files you sent me, they are great for acrylic.

thank you for the help, but can you make one of each for engrave the head and then cut out the outlines only

Make your cut lines a different color and set up the laser to vector those, engrave everything else.

Oh, and it would help others help you if you put a list of your equipment in your sigline.
