I design wood barn quilts and want to cut the wood pieces on my laser. I designed the quilt in a quilting software and exported it as an EPS file. I converted it to a JPEG and then imported it to LB. I then had to trace it because it imported the entire page of the original document while my design was tiny in the corner. In effect I traced it to perform a kind of crop operation if that makes sense.
So, my next step needs to be to pull the image apart into its individual shapes (rectangles and trapezoids) in order to rotate those and cut each one of the grain of the wood for each color, but I cannot convert to a path. When I select my design the Convert to Path under Edit is not lit up to be selectable.
This is my first project and I have gotten this far by watching lots of tutorial videos, but I don’t know where to go from here. Did I design the file incorrectly?
