    Default Vectric options

    I'm looking for information on whether or not anyone has found success with using an alternative program to trace bitmaps as nicely as vectrics software elsewhere? I am running b solid, on the Biesse Rover S 1536,
    I work in a furniture store and looking into the possibility of doing some sign work, I used vectric exclusively for years and found that it has the best bitmap trace feature around which comes in very handy when doing sign work or logo work,
    has anyone found a better program to make dxf files. For design purposes Vetric works great, Biesse advised it will not work with our machine for toolpaths.

    I would think that you could create a Vectric post processor to use it with your Biesse.

    Given both the number of Biesse machines and the number of Vectric users surely the two companies ought to be talking to each other in order get some mutual benefit.Has the OP tried to use Inkscape for tracing bitmaps?I find it hard to use,but it does a job once you have some familiarity.

    Aspire comes with at least 10 Biesse post processors. Vectric should be able to create one for his machine.

    Biesse advised it will not work with our machine for toolpaths
    I wouldn't believe what Biesse or any of the other major manufacturers tell you. From my 25+ years of experience with these companies, I don't have a lot of trust in what they tell me.
