Help with small bore silhouette targets.



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a unique problem that I'm hoping someone on this sight may be able to help or point me in the right direction. I want to make a set of small bore (.22) silhouette targets, but rather than trace them and cut them out on a band saw I have access to a laser burning machine. The problem is I need to some how convert the outline of the targets to a thumb drive so it can be plugged into the drive unit. Do any of you guys know where I can get this accomplished? Thanks for your help in advance. RRM

There are PDFs of the targets out there, both full size and smallbore. But are you sure you just need the outline on the thumbdrive or do you need the actual CNC code?

The nra had on its silhouette site the targets in PDF form, I can't find that site anymore since they changed it.

Go to steelchickens.com, search for paper targets.

Never run a laser but I have run a CNC Plasma table and many other CNC machines. You need to convert the PDF to a dxf file. A dxf file is a universal format that most all machines can read. I'm sure someone has a dxf file already. Try places like CNC Zone.
