Tip: Tracing an Image with ViaCAD

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Here is a tip that shows how to set up the scale relationship between an imported image and your drawing.  Some key points:

1.  Find a known distance in the image.

2.  Create  a line along the known distance.

3.  Create a second line that represents the actual model distance.

4.  Use the scale command to scale the image to the desired model scale.
