    Inputting large handdrawn drawings into Solidworks? Digitizer?

    Jeff Anderson

      Hello users,

      We have a number of old hand drawn templates that we use to cut out fabric.  Many of them have complex curves that would be hard to measure. Does anyone use a tool that would be able to click and plot different points from the paper drawings to convert to points/lines in Solidworks? I have researched online and found devices called digitizers, but they all require an expensive tablet.  We are working with paper templates that may be as long as 6 ft. Is there some tool that doesn't require a tablet?
