I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas. I have Rhino3 and just ordered XR2 Express but my stinkin' PCNC1100 won't be here for a few more months! :frown: I dont think I'm going to last that long.
OK... back to the reason for the post. Does anyone use the raster to vector feature in OneCnc? is it a fairly capable program or should I look at something more specific to that one feature? I cant imagine OneCnc being that good at everything.
Its not a magic wand, but if you are getting OneCNC anyways, I would wait and try out the function before buying something else. One way to learn what to look for if you are brand new to the field, is to use the OneCNC trace function and discover your own expectations, then go shopping and see if there is anything better within your budget.
The quality of the original image has the greatest effect on the conversion. Clear cut outlines with good contrast convert the best. Images that span a lot of greyscale tend to generate lots of random bits and pieces that need cleaning up.
I believe that most people in the engraving field know that its not dead easy to do every job, as the results are highly subjective to personal approval
First you get good, then you get fast. Then grouchiness sets in.
