We have converted our image and now it is time to clean it up and export it out. First we take a look at the image for defects. We find a few and use the Illustrator weld tool to get rid of them.
Next we export the image out as a dxf file. DXF Files are common currency between CAD Programs.
When we export, we go with the oldest type of DXF File available. I do it that way because I find it makes a simpler file that virtually any CAD Program can open and use.
Next we go into our CAD Program to resize our file to the proper dimensions.
