Generally speaking,

Step 1) I use an online PDF to SVG or DXF converter
Step 2) Bring in that file to a CAD or drawing program to remove all the unnecessary and duplicate lines (sometimes easier to just draw over in a new layer and erase all the imported lines).
Step 3) export from the drawing program into a CAM program to establish cutting settings for each line segment
Step 4) make parts!
