Lazycam is dxf file inporter so you will need to convert the dwf to a dxf.  The dxf file contains all the vector info of the entities which  LC uses on inport to define the profile.
Yes there is a image module but there is no support on it's use and the LC manual only covers the mill module with some guidence on the lathe module ( which is replaced by LazyTurn). The magic wands , as i call them, which do raster to vector conversion, rarely provide satisfactory results.

its just that the dxf files never come out looking the way i designd them and the WMF files in lazy cam are bang on for me
