Using .SVG file type

Looking for suggestions on how to define the tool paths for this project. Clock Face "StraightCarve" cnc by ZenziWerken - Thingiverse

The file is just an .svg and I have only ever created my gcode using an .stl that already had all my finished dimensions defined. This file is just flat.

Also suggestions for what bit would be best for this? Currently have 1/4” down cut, up cut, 1mm tapered ball nose and a 1/4” 90 degree v bit

I habe recreated the whole thing as an stl in Tim KERA cad but it seems a lot of models come as svg so I’d like to learn how to use them.


SVGs are extruded in KM into solids. Then you can use trace or outline ops to mill them.
