I'm fairly new to autocad, although I've programmed CNC vertical mills
with Smartcam for years, and I've gotta say, I'm picking up autocad
like a duck to water.
The only thing thats really stumped me so far is converting files
over....if its even possible at all. I've got a black and white
line-art .gif file, and I would like to convert it to a DXF or DWG
file so that I can dimention it all out, program it and cut the shape
into a chunk of aluminum as a decorative thing.
I've tried a couple online converters for gif to autocad, but haven't
had any sucsess yet. Is there an easy way to do this?
Thanks in advance for your help
The slickest way I've used to get a graphic to vector is by having a
sign shop do it,
Their conversion program beats even what I've seen wintopo do !
Sorry couldn't tell you the name of the sign software though :-(
