Contour Cutting- Design in Photoshop?

Hey guys,

So I am new to contour cutting. We have just setup our new cutter, and our work flow works great with onyx just generating the tile outline cutfiles. I would like to learn how to make some more creative cuts for fun though. Using Onyx's spotty instructions I have been able to create contour cuts successfully using illustrator (drawing shape with the CutContour spot colour).

Is it possible to design contour cuts for onyx using photoshop cs3?

Unfortunately you cannot do it direct from photoshop, you would need to place your PSD into illustrator and then create the path (or export path to illustrator from photoshop) then name the path the same as you normally would for CutContour. Sorry, not much time to go more in depth than that at the moment.
