I want to find the contours of (parts) image and sent the output to a laser cutter. For example, take this image:

enter image description here

I use this code:

maskv1 = AlphaChannel[RemoveBackground[bal1]];
 contours =  
 ImageMeasurements[   EdgeDetect[Blur[ImageMultiply[bal1, maskv1], 2],
 1], "Contours"]; bal4 = ImageGraphics[   ColorNegate[   
      EdgeDetect[BilateralFilter[Graphics[contours], 7, .1]], .6], 
     Method -> "Mean"]], ImageSize -> 600];

The output is:

enter image description here

The red line is done by myself. As you can see, the contour is not closed. The desired output is something like:

enter image description here

So I need a function to close the outline/contour. Who has a suggestion to do this?

img = Import["https://i.sstatic.net/O14tf.jpg"]

Using ImageMesh + BoundingRegion:

mindisk = BoundingRegion[ImageMesh[RemoveBackground@img], "MinDisk"]
Disk[{56.0259, 59.0719}, 48.1942]
Show[img, Graphics[{FaceForm[], EdgeForm[{Red, Thick}], mindisk}]]
