RE: Photoshop artwork to 2D cad format

I have pondered this same question for a while. Looking forward to
hearing what the list says.

My only contribution is that Adobe Illustrator can export a DXF file. I
upgraded to Illustrator version 9.0 just to get the functionality. But
on my one and only attempt, the results were not perfect. To make the
DXF file usable would have required some additional CAD time.

If you would like me to convert the artwork to see what the results are,
forward the PSD file to my attention.

Hello list,

I was wondering if any of you know of a way to take some linework in
Photoshop and get it into a format I can use for my CNC mills.
(.dwg,.dxf,.igs )

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
