    ...and with Bezier curves so you can tweak points and directions, you can do reasonably well. I must take a look at some software my wife uses to convert bitmap drawings into vectors which then get digitised for a computer sewing machine. It seems to do better than things like Adobe Illustrator.

    Hope this helps, in trace bitmap I used following options
    1. Black/white
    2. corner fit 43%
    3. noise filter 10
    4. bitmap fading none
    5. apply

    seemed to come out ok, I'm not always so lucky

    I've saved 2 files to dxf, heart1 is a single vector, heart2 is the bitmap tracing of your image.

    I do a lot of bitmap tracing and the only way I can get a nice clean result is to either use the trace command and then node edit the resulting vectors or manually draw over a background image, drawing and tracing with vectors is nothing like drawing with a pencil, takes loads of practice.
