A digital image can be viewed as a grid of points each of which has a different color.
Dime is able to recognize the contour points, which delimit the object represented in the image, and transforms them into mathematical entities like segments, arcs and curves.
It is possible to manage tangency, parallelism, squareness and symmetry in order to obtain a true object design. The entities are the same that the user, without Dime, should draw manually.
The scale management of the drawing is automatic and involves the placement of a suitable reference on the support copy. A further scaling factor (measure of control) can be set in the case where the reference is smaller than the object to be scanned. It is important that template and background colors are almost uniform and distinct. Functions are still available within the image to eliminate anything that may interfere with the correct identification of the profile.
Dime can achieve the accuracy level of one millimeter or even less in the identification of contours, depending on the resolution of the camera and the size of the shapes to be processed.
