    SVG to G-code converter

    Hi guys, I'm making the converter SVG to G-code:

    https://veiseliha.com/#more-demo

    It uses SVG syntax described here:

    https://localhost/test/js-editor-web...d-svg-tutorial

    Will appreciate any help in testing it, especially if you use anything another than LinuxCNC

    Hello.

    Unfortunately localhost is unable to open.

    It would be interesting to try your program.

    Regards.

    Re: SVG to G-code converter

    This could be a useful development.I know that Inkscape has the capability to create Gcode from an svg file but have never found a way to make it happen,if there was a contest for the least intuitive program ever I believe Inkscape would be a contender.

    It seems Makercam only behaves with some browsers and security settings.

    Hello.

    For an unknown reason I could not reply with a PM.

    What I will be doing is using some of my already converted files so that it will be possible to compare the generated G codes. Then I will run them on my viewer and watch their execution. I´ll try to post the video files.

    Regards.

    Re: SVG to G-code converter

    Hello.

    The posted files are the ones I´ll be using to test your software. This is the type of patterns that our new machine will be required to quilt.

    I´m in the process to convert these files using the technique I already have. This far I have the DXF´s.

    I´ve also included the original SVG´s in case you want to experiment on your own although I don´t think it is what you want.

    The filename extension was changed to txt as the uploading protocol does not allow SVG files.

    I will post my results as soon as possible.

    Regards.

    Answered in the private message but couldn't send file, sending here.

    Splitted the sample into multi simple shapes, because complex shape will probably run into calculation timeout.
