Hello Zax,

did you have a chance to review already?

I did, but as I suspected the DXF to Image alignment isn't accurate. It's close but not as good as adding Sketch or Trace.

So I removed it from the latest release but still have it on the list.

What would your work flow be to get the CAD to perfectly align with an image? Since images don't have fixed sizes it isn't simple. I saved the image at the resolution I was going to use in T2Laser but when it was exported (at least from Corel) it got changed to be slightly off. I think there's a requirement for pixels or resolution to be a factor of 16.

Zax,

first, thanks a lot for your efforts!

In most cases there is no need for a 100% correct alignment of a picture in the dxf.
I mean, for me it would be enough to align it freehand without dimension just by eye.

Thanks again

Zax

Arrh! Lightbulb moment.

I hadn't thought of that, overlay it on screen and allow the user to correct the position... that may work. It's more coding but may solve the issue of alignment unless scaling (size) is a problem too.

There really should be an images format that uses real world dimensions, maybe there is but I haven't heard of it.
