Converting object into 1 stroke / line?

Hi guys,

I would like to know if there is an easy way (either on lightburn or illustrator) to convert a shape into a single stroke/line ?

Here is an example :

This is an object, and I would like to make a single line out of it like this (drawn by hand in this case) :

Is there an automated way to do that ?

For the record I want to cut a single line at really low power instead of engraving, to save time doing a product.

Hope I have been clear enough,


Inkscape, FREE, has a trace bitmap centerline function if you provide a bitmapped version. you might still need to do some cleanup, but it might be worth a try.

Hey ! Thanks for your response.

After hours I finally found a solution that suits me on Illustrator :

Rasterize - then image trace → Line art —> Expand.

Here is the result !
