Help me SHAVE Time!

I am looking to carve this on Aspen and wondering what I can do to save some time. Thank you for any input.

I messed with it a little and turned the feedrates up and the roughing bit took around 8 minutes but i switched it to a 60 degree vbit and cut around 3 hours off the finish bit. I assume you are running a stock xcarve but i switched the feed rate to 80" per min. and the plunge rate to 15" per minute. You can slow that down if needed not sure what your machine can handle. I am sure someone will come along with a quicker way but that cut a lot of time off. You might try switching to a 90 degree and simulate that and see if you can gain any there.

You have a lot of nodes on that image, that will take extra time. I dont know what program you used to create the file but if you retyped it that would cut out some time also.
