At the AUTOFACT conference, one of the companies showed a system for
converting photographs from a digital camera (.BMP files) to commands to
drive a small milling machine. The milling machine would then engrave
the picture into a small brass piece.
The quality of the engraving was quite acceptable.
My question is, does anyone on the list know of a software package that
can do the equivalent of this function, but do a conversion to an STL
file or DXF file so that the engraving could be made on an RP system?
