Can I salvage my .bmp files?

Post by FatPoppy » Wed Jan 01, 2020 9:41 pm

I have had a raster type machine for six years now. It carved .bmp files to 3D with iPicture. I recently got a XXL. I know very little about vectors. Can I convert these .bmp to use on my XXL?

You can re-draw the pixel images, auto-scan them, or use them in a CAM tool which supports using pixel images such as F-Engrave or MeshCAM or PixelCNC.
