How does it deal with scanned images (like the 3DHS logo)? Do you need other software to do something like that?

I just used the trace utility to make a Futaba logo for my TX case. (Never would've bothered with this without this tool!) Trace needed some fiddling, but it worked out great in the end.

As for the software, I haven't paid the $50 upgrade, but the line editing is seriously annoying. I try to only use their software to send stuff to the device. I find dxf import works fairly well, but if I have to fix up stuff, it's a terrible experience.

OTOH, I picked this one based on NOT having to use their software. The ability to trace, and import were all I wanted, and it does an adequate job there.

Does the $50 upgrade give you anything besides the SVG import??
