JPEG to DXF

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out of its possible to draw something on Paint, save as JPEG. rastor, and convert to a vector, DXF, format? My goal is to draw something and CNC machine it. HAs anyone tried something similar?

I don't think you'll end up with a file the CNC can use. I'd look for a DXF plugin for GIMP and draw it as a vector file from the start. You might also try looking for a simple CAD program to use. They all have DXF available as a standard file type.

you can use corel draw or adobe illustrator for vectors. as far as i know, nothing else will make vector drawings.

inkscape is a FOSS vector image maker. you can get .dxf plugins for that. I use it at work for a similar purpose.
