I cut these on my modified mini-mill. (It is much more like a C-beam machine now.) I had a new dust boot and it worked great at preventing the spray of acrylic chips on my machine and shop.
I found some of the designs as svg's online. The others, I converted from jpeg's to svg's using the free program Inkscape. I imported each svg into a sketch in fusion 360, added an outline, and then used f360's manufacture environment to create the toolpaths and export the g-code.
I used OpenBuilds control to load the gcode and control the cuts.
