Cut out, but not inside

Post by alexander7567 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 12:43 pm

Hello! Still learning Carbide Create, but I have run into something that I see being a big problem for me in the future. I converted an image to an SVG and tried to cut out the outside perimeter. The problem is, Carbide Create wants to cut all of the inside lines too because of the way the image is. How can I only cut the outside perimeter and save the inside likes for v-carving? I assume there is some kind of a key combination or something that I can enter to only cut outside perimeter.
