I'd like to CNC draw an image. The image is composed of many, many shapes that overlap with each other.
Say I'd like to draw this image:
Visually I can see the outline of the star, but part of the star's outline is occluded by the outline of the rectangle (because it's filled).
I'd like my CNC machine to draw the picture this way, but when I load it up it sees it like this instead:
What could I do to preserve the visual effect of the overlap? Essentially I'd like to select all fills, remove all paths behind those, and then get rid of the fills.
I'm having trouble understanding how the usual "break apart", "union", etc could work together to achieve this.
