A novel method for inputting embroidery images is presented. The method can convert BMP image format to DXF?graphics format automatically. Firstly, the embroidery image is captured by a scanner; secondly, the image will be converted to a graphics by means of image processing and multinomial fitting algorithm; finally, a special graphics file will be created to be the DXF graphics format. Test results using this method showed that the algorithm achieved a good quality and improved the efficiency of inputs greatly.
