Image to polygon converter for openscad, takes an image preferably black and white but tresholding can be done in the program and makes an openscad contour on the clipboard that can be pasted into openscad
Can export to SVG which can be used for laser cutting.
Bug Fix (jun 28 2019):
turned out that values were written with comma's when using the boundary, fixed to
dots and works now. (depended on local settings and i switched to a new computer
so i noticed it. . .).

Trace black and white bitmap images to openscad polygons.
The result ends up on the clipboard so you can paste it into openscad.
Be aware that the polygon is 2 dimensional, you have to do a linear_extrude to get it 3D. . .
