This function allows for quick and easy vectorizations from graphic images, whether black and white, grayscale or 8, 24 or 32 bits color depth.
The vectorization is a process that converts a raster image (bmp or jpg) into vector graphics (composed of a set of graphic primitives such as lines, arcs, and polylines) that can be used in machining operations.
The vector format can be imported into other CAD/CAM applications .
Black and White conversion
Each image is made up of millions of pixels and each pixel has its own color.
Move the slider in order to reduce the color information present on each pixel from the image information only to two: white and black.
Removing spots or isolated pixels
This section allows you to choose the maximum size of black and white spots and remove them from the image raster before performing the vectorization process.
Vectors creation parameters
With SimplyCam you can opt for two different modes of vectorization: "Centerline" and "Outline".
If you choose the option "Centerline", the vectorization generates vector along the center of the raster elements, otherwise the vectorization generates vector along the edge of the raster elements.
This parameter determines how the curves will be created to fit the raster pixels.
Sets the number of filtering or smoothing that are applied to created curves.
The set value (degrees), determines the maximum angle between a series of preceding pixels and a series of subsequent pixels to form an corner.
Removing vectors smaller than
The vector length smaller than the set value are not created by the vectorization process.
Vectors on the layer
The vectors created by the vectorization process are positioned on the selected layer and inherit their attributes (color, thickness).
Vectors created by the vectorization process are shown in the graphic area without being stored in the database.
This option allows to program that replaces a series of linear vectors with arcs whenever possible.
Show information about the vectorization process.
The vectors created by the vectorization process are stored in the database.
