Seemed like over 200k maybe.

Took a little bit for cleanup.

Got it down to 17k abouts. So it seems clean now.

Why no .AI / .EPS file uploads?

Would a high node count have an effect in cutting?

Anyways, im sure you can use PDFs, no?

2 different, one is inverted.

High node count kills machining times...reduce that and your time should drop a good bit.

Your run time does not seem too high for such a detailed carving. I generally use 1hr per sqft as a rules for 3D and very detailed carvings. You seem to be near the range. I am sure acceleration value tweaking could make it faster but I only see that as an option if you plan on running this same type of work all the time.

You have been given very good advice so far.
