Vector Graphics
« on: December 09, 2013, 05:19:24 AM »
Hi there, there are a lot of free vector graphics on the net, can some one please help me and explain how to convert vector to g-code, e.g. what software is easiest and the steps needed to go from V to G.

Thanks in advance

For simple stuff LazyCam (free with Mach3) can work quite well.

Depends on what you're looking for, 2.5D or 3D.
For the 2.5D I'd look closely at D2nc. I have it and absolutely love it.
Others will find other software easier.

The main thing to understand is there will be some sort of learning curve with any of them. Stick to the one that appeals to you and dig in and learn it.
There are many demo versions available for various ones.

Probably not the answer you were looking for, but there's no sense in starting a war here with who's got the best.
