Thread: how to change a clip art
I am really new to this.
I have down loaded a clip art image of a lizard for my wife card display case/box that I'm going to be making in the new year (when my CNC is finished)
and would like to convert it to a line drawing, but how ??
I use vetric/punch and I know I can buy a photo program for engraving images but money is getting thin now.
So the only choice I have is to import the image in to a back ground and draw over it, But this is going to take me days or even weeks is there a better/quicker way to do this for free.
or even has any one got a program to change it to a DXF for me :whistling:
what is scan to cad ??
will this scan this image and convert it to a line drawing for me (I think this is a free program)
James and Luke
Thank you chip
but you have me wrong I want to send it to the CNC machine to cut the out line of the Lizard so I need to convert this clip art to a line drawing.
Look for a program that does 'vectorising'. Vectorising is converting an image to vectors, i.e. lines.
I've done it with the CAD program I use, see attached... can fiddle with the settings for you a bit if that's not sufficient?

Jonathan you'r my hero
what cad program do you use ?? and is it free
Easy to use, clear display - I think it's great.
I think you said Luke uses it at school? In which case he might be able to get you a copy? There's a student licence. I used it at school:
