Converting an Image to Vector Art

Vector art is a type of image file created using vector illustration software such as Adobe Illustrator. This type of software uses mathematic equations and geometric primitives (shapes, lines and points) to make smooth images that can be scaled up or down without losing quality to pixilation like with the other type of image file called a raster graphic. When using a CNC router you need vector art so that the programs in your machine will have a perfectly clear image to work with. To tell whether or not you have a vector art file start by seeing what type of file your image is. Certain file extensions are very common, especially those used by Adobe Illustrator since that is one of the most common programs for creating vector art images. The four most common vector art file extensions are .ai, .pdf, .eps and .svg. A file saved to one of these formats is not always vector art, even though the extensions are a good indicator. You cannot open a raster file in a software program that creates vector art and resave it as a vector image. It will still act like a raster file with pixilation occurring when you change the image’s size. Only files created in a vector art program are true vector art images. It is possible to use the image trace feature in Adobe Illustrator to make a raster graphic into a vector art graphic. You might also find that other vector illustration software is capable of something similar but it will depend on what software you are using. With a little Internet searching you can try to find a tutorial on how your program can do this, if it can do it at all. To be absolutely certain that your image is a vector art file the easiest thing to do is to open the file in a vector editing program. If you see a series of lines with nodes in the image those are the vector editing nodes and that means your file is vector art. If you do not have vector editing software it may be worth it to find someone who does and get their help checking your images.

photo carving with Badog and Vectrix 3d

Hello to all, I just wanted to share a couple of examples shared from one of our clients using vectrix software and his Badog X2 machine. the carving was done in 2 levels 1 pass of rough with a tool of 3mm and one passd with a finer ball nosed tool with a diameter of 3mm. although the project did take quite a long time to complete (about 20-30 minutes), the end surface yielded an almost flawless curve. thanks for sending us the pictures and feel free if anyone has some more examples to send them to us or just upload them to facebook and we will tag them for you
