Before the g-code file is created
the size of the carving dimensions and the maximum tool depth can be
increased or decrease without the need to reprocess the image. Image
resolution can also be adjusted using several methods like the k-factor,
axis combine, reverse, close enough and the x and y axis resolution.
Prep-code and post-code can be edited with the G-Code Editor built into
the application for easy access and more. Image to G-Code can convert
raster images to vectors also.
Image to G-Code also imports DXF
files from most CAD programs. (AutoCAD release 12 compatible), the
importer support most geometric entities including inserts [with nested
blocks]. After the DXF file is imported all supported entities are put
in list organized by layers. The G-Code setup options form allows you to
set layer level priorities including turning on and off the layer, set
the tool release plane, close enough, default Z-Axis character, pre-code
and post-code, optimize, and more.
Image to G-Code also includes a
little CAD drawing editor that allows you to modify imported DXF-Files,
convert True Type Fonts to vectors, and draw lines, circles, polygons,
arcs and more.
The built in G-Code editor is a text
editor with the basic find and replaced functions, clipboard support,
undo and redo, math expression parser, triangle and distance between two
points calculators and G-Code M-Code panel that includes most G and M
codes formatted syntax including circular interpolation calculations.
Image to G-Code is a fully
integrated for easy interaction and its graphic user interface is
similar to most Microsoft Windows© applications found in the market
