Welcome to the forum! When you get a minute complete your profile with first name to clear the N/a in the side panel. Adding your location helps us to help you, as well.

I use Fusion 360 but there are plenty of Vectric folks here who will likely chime in soon.

Glad you joined the fun. Welcome. Someone who knows will be along soon, they're probably busy right now with their own CNC.

I looked at the Laguna machine awhile back at their warehouse in Orange County, CA. It, like most Laguna stuff, was a beauty. I'd be interested in knowing how they do with support. They're excellent on the rest of their stuff.

Are you asking for a picture, or a file of a deer that will drive your CNC?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Welcome to the Router Forums.

We need to know what picture you found and what you are actually wanting to do with the picture.

If you want to create a 3D project using VCarve you are out of luck just using VCarve. You might be able to use one of the 3D modeling software packages to help you create a .stl 3D model file then import that into your VCarve software to create toolpaths for the project but that is a lot of work. You could also find a 3D model on a site like Design and Make that would be just what you are looking for and they sell models in the Vectric format.
There are other sites that sell 3D models and you need to make sure the format you choose is compatible with VCarve.

If you just want to do a pocket/v-carve of the silhouette then you might be able to import the picture into VCarve and use the Vector Fit Tool to create the vectors to toolpath. If there is not enough contrast in the picture then you could trace the silhouette of the deer using the Draw Curve Tool then node edit the results to get the vectors needed. You might also be able to find a good silhouette picture to fit the vectors to and make life a lot easier.

Or are you trying to do something else with the picture?
