12.1.38. Background bitmaps

You can set a background bitmap in SimCam version 2.5 and later.
This function is helpful if you want to trace the contours of an object that you want to cut out or engrave.
Supported image formats are PNG, JPG and GIF.
By using the [Multi-line] function in the [Line] menu, you can trace the contour by clinging on the image. When done, you can clear the background bitmap and scale the contour to fit your workpiece.
By clicking settings in the Background Bitmap menu you can set position and scale of the bitmap.
