Scan to dxf software question

Postby lik2waterski » Sun Apr 29, 2012 12:43 am

Does anyone know of any software that can take an image that you scan, and convert it to a dxf?
Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions.

I use Draftsman Cutting Shop from Arbor Image.

I got a copy when I bought my Dynatorch machine, but I have since updated to 4.5.

Works great!
Thank you caveman for wheel and fire.

Agreed. Have been running Cutshop for almost 5 years now and it is always my go to program when doing conversions or drawing artistic files!
