Scanning a logo and saving as dxf?

Scanning a logo and saving as dxf?

Hello All,
 I have a question regarding ACAD 2000.
We have a waterjet machine and it recognizes only .dxf files. I want to scan our company logo and open it in ACAD2000 and then save the file as dxf. I tried that but was unsuccessful. Any ideas???
Anyone know of any plugins for ACAD etc?

Any help will be appreciated.


RE: Scanning a logo and saving as dxf?

Corel Draw 10 has raster to vector converstion with it. Othervise,
1. Scan it in and a bmp, or simillar
2. Trace over it with autocad, in a different layer.
3. Turn the layers offf than have the tracing on.
4. Erase the bmp.

Hard and Long but it works, I just did this with som e crane drawings.

GoodLuck, Rich
