    New VBScript for wrapping plane code within NCPLOT

    Hi all,
    please find attached a small VBScript that will convert plane G-Code with X/Y/Z to X/A/Z or Y/B/Z code.
    To install just extract the attached zip file into the script folder of your NCPLOT installation.

    You can save the converted program to use it for i.e. engraving on a cylinder.

    After starting it will ask for the axis to convert (X or Y) and the radius of the cylinder you will use the converted code on.

    Important : Have a look at the attached screenshot named Settings. Here you have to set your rotary axis letter and which axis it rotates around.
    You also have to set the rotary center distance with a negative value.
    If the backplot needs to be mirrored just check Reverse rotary axis direction.


    Simply left click at the bottom of NCPLOT on the word Script and select the script Wrap-It.
    And please be patient ! If you have a large program it will take some time .

    If the script works for you and you find it useful I'd appreciate a small donation.

    Thanks,
    Richard
