Default Help with sketch image trace in illustrator

Hello everyone,my name is roberto.
I need some advice and help.im a newbie and trying to learn a lot. Foubd tgis site finally. Firstly im having trouble with tracing a handdrawn sketch in illustrator. The thing is that my son drawn a sketch on paper. I scanned it en opened it in illustrator. After that i made a image trace to get the outlines and expand it. Ok so far so good.after expanding i saved it as a dxf file,because i want to cut the drawing on vynil and press it on a shirt. The trouble is beginning at the cutting part. But what i get is double lines in the cut proces. Also a lot of double lines after the tracing and expanding. Is there a way or technique to clean this out. And is there somebody who knows something about this problem of mine.
Im using illustrator and silhouette studio with the cameo 3 cutter.im stuck and cant find any information or help. Hopefully somebody can help me.

Thanks.gr roberto

You'll always get double outlines from a scanned drawing because a pen or pencil hasn't got a negligible width. You'll have to delete the 'inner' lines in Illustrator so that you are left with single outlines.

try the image trace in silhouette studio, it is superior to illustrator's,
especially if you have designer edition
also if you upgrade to designer you can import svg's
here is some info on designer edition (i got mine here for $30, instead of the $50 on silhouette's site)

here is a quick tutorial
here is one on double line removal
and here is a list of others
(bookmark that site, it is full of cameo tutorials and answers)

And if i scan it into jpeg and load it in silhouette studio i can trace it better than illustrator.do you have some experience with it? I will checl all the tutorials from the links what youve send.thanks a lot man.appreciate it.

Thanks into the t. Im really glad with youre info.thanks man. Ive followed the tutorial, and will read on.do you think that if i have the designer edition i will be able to solve the problem.one thimg i found in the tutorial is that the high pass filter before tracing has to be off.in my version the filter is off at 0.ive tried to release compound after tracing but getting the problem now is that i can delete some double lines but other that are open i cant delete it.sometimes it deletes half of the image.tried the knife tool but that cant cut the lines. So that i csn make the lines manually.do you have experience with tracing sketches and cutting it with cameo on vynil.
