importing tool paths from .tif files

Recommended Posts

Hi community!


Designer 2022 user here, and I'm working with a bunch of digital artists who use Photoshop.  Our printers can use .ai or .tif files to generate tool paths for our shopbot CNC router (using Vcarve to generate the g code).  VW doesn't like .ai anymore and .tif's are imported as image files, and Trace Bitmap has less than desirable results.


Anyone know how to get a good clean toolpath from a .tif?


I already know that PS can spit out a dxf or dwg, but the people who send me things keep forgetting that.


(I'd post the .tif in here, but NDA's won't let me).
