Workshop: How to Vectorize Images and Do Cool things with them

Thanks to Aaron for this workshop:

This is going to be a short workshop on how to take images and designs and modify them to be cut on the laser cutter, vinyl cutter, CNC router, and 3D printers. This will not be an in depth class on how to work with vectors, instead it will be a quick overview on how to clean up an image and make it into a vector with as little work as possible. I will also cover using the vinyl cutter from beginning to end since there's not a lot of community knowledge on this and will touch on ways to prepare your vectors for use with the other machines. Using the laser cutter, CNC router and 3D printers will not be part of the class, but I can help anyone with these afterwards as time allows.

Things to bring:
Laptop with Gimp and Inkscape
Some cool designs you might want on your wall, laptop lid, car bumper, or a t-shirt.

    Looking forward to it. Used to use Gerber Graphics Advantage when I owned a Signs-By-Tomorrow franchise back in Pittsburgh. I'd like to vectorize my LLC logo.

    I've got Gimp but haven't done much with it yet. Can anyone suggest a short, free or low cost tutorial?
