    I see you have the latest version software, may I ask if it has the option to export in DXF format? If so, I'll update my old free version 5. I lost my pro license (due to a deleted email address) after which I returned to version 5, basically it's enough for me but not has the DXF feature required for laser cutting.

    if you bought it online and you can remember the email address, you should be able to get your pro licence details from magix who now handle the accounts, worth a try

    pretty sure ver 16 does not have dxf, 15.1 doesn't

    Thanks for the demo Egg.
    After watching that I see it was "combine shapes" that did the trick in this programme.

    Default Starting with laser cutting acrylic - How to easy create a contour cutting line?

    So the laser cutting line +/- 5mm from the image. Those with a steady drawing hand and -tablet can do it manually, but is there a software-matic way to create this line that exactly follows the image, with manual adjustments possible like eg. the upper right corner part here? I tried this via the shadow tool and the bevel tool, but could not figure it out. I would very much like to learn how to do this, if it's possible.

    something along the lines of

    apply contour to vector image

    convert this shape to editable shape and ungroup

    to the shape behind your image apply outline and no fill

    use shape tool to tweak it

    I do not guarantee it would be suitable for task I don't lazer cut

    As there were two very similar threads, and because I can do this, I have merged the two threads.
