Thanks for your offer, though, even as slow as I am, the walls are already built and raised.

I'm not dead, yet. I'm feeling better.

bitmap to DXF

Postby Bob Bailey » Sat Jul 02, 2011 2:24 pm

I think this will work
Sketchup will allow export of either windows bitmap or jpg. There is a free program called Inkscape which is a lot like Adobe Illustrator. It will accept a JPG and export a DXF file. Of course this only works with 2D drawings.
I hope this is helpful.

You can take one of the design Library DXF plans to the free version of Sketchup, If you have SketchUp version 7.0 or earlier, it will directly import a DXF. To go the other way you really need Pro... Version 7.1 took out the AutoCad link in the free version...
