I'm back, at least briefly. A bit of a detour.

I am trying to work in Illustrator to create an outline of an object that I can then send to my laser cutter. So my thought (perhaps incorrect) was to remove all the colors inside the object, just leaving the border or outline.

I looked at few vids on YT that seemed to just confuse me.

What is your question? What are you confused about?
Hawkeye, sorry for my delay. Let me look at the instructional vid from the other poster and see if I can figure it out. I was able to convest the photo you see above into a DXF and then upload it into AI, but it left a few lines.

I will post by tomorrow with results. Thanks for your follow-up. I shut it down for most of the day. Really needed it.

All The Best,
WTH
