    You know you can use any vector drawing app that saves dxf files, and import them into LaserBoy? LaserBoy has special features for cleaning up dxf imports and making them ready to scan. DeltaCAD is a very nice dxf app. You can open a raster image and trace over it. You can even zoom in for the details and the raster image zooms too. It's pretty cool.

    ... I'm using Corel Draw (actually Corel X8 SE) for this - there you can vectorize contours or "centerlines", if vectorizing hand-drawn sketches ...

    Your dxf conversion is cool (i know its used in ildsos) however its very inefficient as laserboy delivers the content "untouched" .. so the point data is too heavy in most cases.

    I'm a little late to this thread, but what about using a pen mouse instead? At 12 bucks, it's way cheaper than a tablet...
