12.2.37. Background bitmaps

You can set a background bitmap in SimCam.
This function is useful 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 clicking on the image. Once completed, 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 the position, scale of the bitmap, and opacity.
